The 13th Doctor Was Revealed! It’s a Woman!

Yesterday was the day that the 13th Doctor was to be announced. In Doctor Who, all of the Doctors have been men. But now, we have a female Doctor! It is Jodie Whittaker.

Some people are unhappy, but the response seems to be mostly very positive. The opponents often say they don’t want a female Doctor because the Doctor has always been male. But Time Lords have changed gender in the past, so why can’t The Doctor?

Here’s what I had to say about this:

And in case you missed it, here’s the reveal trailer:

  1. As an outsider who knows little of Dr. Who, I’ve noticed an interesting sociological phenomenon but can’t verify it. On my Facebook feed, I’ve seen a rush of people complain about people who reject the idea of a female Dr. Who. But I have yet to see any posts by anyone who actually rejects the idea of a female Dr. Who. Is it that my friends are unrepresentative? Or that the anti-female-Who brigade is actually very small but a valuable ideological target when magnified? Has anyone run the statistics?

  2. I’ve seen *all* of “Doctor Who”, ever since I was a kid. Personally I don’t mind the thirteenth being female, it’s just that, for me, it’s a little weird because we’ve gotten so used to The Doctor always being a guy.
