play the role yeah but not actually play the doctor in the main series. by your logic we might as well say mr bean is the doctor.

One other thing I've noticed from both teaser trailers is a whole new visual look for the show.

New aspect ratio and a more cinematic look. Finally embracing the other BBC dramas!

Over half an hour before I was expecting and would have been nice if the OP was just the bbc tweet and trailer. Notice how they had the common sense in the tweet to not include the name? =_=.

lmao. it's a casting announcement.

Since Chibnall is casting Broadchurch characters as Doctor Who folk, I want the kid who played Danny to be a radical new take on the Master.

I fully expect anyone who knows the doctor in-universe to mention it. honestly, I wouldn't mind either. It'd be shocking as hell. Just don't dwell onit.

I was saying in yesterday's thread - I see her landing somewhere between Five and Nine in terms of personality. I don't think she's gonna be outsized and silly like Ten & Eleven were.

Yeah, I've been thinking Whittaker's Doctor will probably be a lot like Nine. Could definitely see some shades of Five in there too, now that I think about it.

Ecclesten, Tennant, and Smith's outfits had a lot of personality to them. Capaldi's was eh.

I stopped watching Dr'ho years ago - well, after Matt Smith left.

But I'll be back for Jodie - loved her in ATB. Happy to represent.

Hope John Boyega sends a tweet her way.

Just brain farting now. Jodie is a very slim women. When they do the regeneration for the next doctor after her and if its a man of average or greater build they are gonna have to write around the whole wearing the same clothes post regeneration thing.


That could be fun.

Hopefully the stories will be good and for the love of god, not a bunch of jokes about being female. I think that would kill any and all enjoyment if the doctor all of a sudden became a 13 year old boy discovering boobs every episode.

I never seen anything she has done, but I will watch.


Went to Gallifrey base for the laughs, lots of people enjoy the next doctor, and of course you have some not so great posts by people who swear this is the end of times for the doctor and it will be cancelled after the first episode.

The are going to. At least for the first 2 episodes.

Same thing happened to Capaldi and how old he was.

The hair looks great I think. Very fitting.

I am more curious about her regular attire. Are they going the missy route or will she have tailored masculine outfits?

The people who are having meltdowns are the same group of morons who have a meltdown any time a woman takes a role predominately played by a man, looks at them or even exists.

Aka, self-absorbed assholes who think the world revolves around their gender.

I'm looking forward to the new series. After watching Broadchurch and the great job Jodi did (the entire cast, actually), I'm looking forward to her in the role. She's a fantastic actor and I think she'll do great.

To be honest, I think CFC Tweet has a point. An Asian as Batman would be great and if WW ever gets to the 13th movie incarnation they could certainly switch things up.

My only concern is the possible social connotations and response should the 14th, or subsequent Doctors be male. It could get messy.

Social attitudes and response how they are right now, I just don't see the return to a male actor after her for a while.

It'll be interesting to see what they do with Doctor's gender rather than outwards sex characteristics. Will he necessarily switch to using 'she' - he has a had a male identity for thousands of years, after all. Then again, I'm not sure they'd experiment with something that complicated and potentially controversial.

I don't think so.

At least, if they regress I don't see them facing anywhere near the heat for it as they would have this time out.

We're talking about a fictional alien space being here that is part of a whole-body cellular regenerative species, not a human being. There are no rules. Anything is possible, and that's why the show is so fantastic.
