New Doctor, or “The Female Doctor Who” – Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor

I haven’t watched any of the current series of Doctor Who but the introduction of the new Doctor gave me chills. Here it is as broadcast by the BBC:


The thing with the key is new, and exciting. By the way, of course an alien who can regenerate at the cellular level from a species with at least 2 biological sexes could come back as a woman. Yes, I’m talking about the Master. If your arch-nemesis changes sex during a regeneration, what’s a man to do? I’m wondering if Jodie’s is a new face, or is she someone the Doctor has met? There’s precedent for that too! Lastly, Eleven thought he might have regenerated as female after he came into being. This isn’t such a shock. You can use any toilet you like on Gallifrey.

Anyway, would you like to win the original drawing pictured above? Just comment below and if there’s enough interest I’ll do a draw (no pun).

    I personally cannot wait. Siobhan shall receive the news by letter tomorrow in Gaeltach. I am sure she’ll be delighted.

    It’s a really big deal that the Doctor is now a woman and this might be the only time this happens. If I won something like this, it would be the perfect way to remember that.

    I am looking forward to see which side of the Doctor personality we’ll get to know through this regeneration. She doesn’t ring a bell in terms of a face that the Doctor might have met before, but I could be wrong.
