    About time the doctor of Doctor Who was a woman, but is it unlucky (13th) for it to be feminist Jodie Whittaker?

    Jodie Whittaker: Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord to be a woman - BBC News

    Some people might be happy but I think - gender aside - she is the wrong person for the role. The BBC don't appear very well at casting the right people these days. I am not a big Doctor Who fan - whovian - some episodes are really good but the vast majority are absolute rubbish, giving the show the nickname Doctor Poo.

    The acceptance speech...

    Since when does the casting of a fictional "Time Lord" in a popular BBC TV programme become along the same lines of the woman's right to vote, first woman into space, first woman to fly across the world solo, first woman to win the Nobel Prize etc.?

    Someone like Richard Ayoade would have been ideal for such a role... someone who can bring charisma (and slight bit of comedy too perhaps?) in addition to just being able to act out lines. In my view David Tennant (10th) was the last good doctor. Richard was never in the running for it but his personality would have been great.

    I would have preferred David Harewood for the role out of all the other suggested candidates.

    Jodie Whittaker probably won't be too bad, all Whovians will start off disliking the choice like the last couple of changes, before growing to like the new doctor. Either way, I will continue not to watch it.
