Default New Dr Who being announced on Sunday

I don't really care who it is but a female would be good.

I've watched all the episodes but I can't agree with you on a woman Doctor. I"m a bit of a chauvinist I guess, but some of the episodes exit from any kind of reality. Having the Doctor played by a woman would just put the nail in the coffin on Doctor Who. Plus as a kid I always liked watching the doctors companions in tight skimpy clothing.

I'm sure the BBC will do it someday, I won't watch it. I still like to think Missy is The Rani, and not the Master. It's stated that Time Lords chose their names. So now the Master isn't the Master it;s Missy. Doesn't make sense.

Sorry but that's just the way I feel about it.

I agree, don't know why but a female Dr. Who is just dumb idea. I'm not being chauvinistic here but I'm not one for change. The Beeb will probably do this because this is the vile world we live in today.

Well they need to change something to spice it up, it's been a bit naff for too long. I only liked 3 episodes of the last series.

Okay, well if not a woman then at least a black Doctor...

I want to go back to alien companions too and that the Tardis is broken and they can't just go where they want.

Gah! They could think of something else to boost their audience. Still maybe Missy will wear skimpy clothes.

BAD NEWS
British actress Jodie Whittaker is scheduled to be the next Doctor in the long-running science fiction series. SOON TO BE SHORT RUNNING SCIENCE FICTION SERIES...

@SPOONME I could watch a doctor who with any ethnicity and possibly like it. It has a lot to do with the writers to make a good series, but a woman is just going to far. At least I have fond memories of the past..... Good times do come to an end at some point.

Give it a chance Walleye - that's all I'm going to do. I don't know what it will be like with a female Dr, and I appreciate your concerns.

Your 100% correct that it's a lot to do with the writers to make it work. I hope it works.

I hope you'll give it a try next season. It could suck big time and might be the end of the show as you say. But fingers crossed - it deserves a chance.

I don't actually like Jodie Whittaker at all - but I'll see what happens...

I wouldnt mind someone of color but when all reality goes out the window its hard to keep watching. Its stated in the show that a time lord chooses his own name. But now the Master isnt the Master it's Missy. So its not foing to be called Doctor who but probably Mrs Who.

I like the sound of 'Lady Who'.

My problem just isn't the show changing it's the "reason" it's changing. Some in this world think things need to change to keep the PC bullsh1t going and eventually it's going to bite them in the ass. Can anyone say "Ghostbuster Reboot"?

My expectations were low but I liked it, not that I can imagine seeing it again though.
