Well, yes today, after months of hype, expectation, and everything else, they finally got around to announcing who would would be the (unlucky?) 13th person to portray Dr Who on TV, in said TV series. Well, today, finally, after today, not only will the Doctor get to regenerate yet again, but this time around, the good Doctor is going to discover that deal includes some gender reassignment too!
Yes, something I never thought I’d see fifty years ago, or even far more recently than that, the new Doctor will be a woman, Jodie Whittaker. And before you ask, despite coming from only a few miles from here (Skelmanthorpe), I know nothing about her. Yes, I know, me, and modern TV lol…
One unique claim I can currently make is that I’ve seen at least 1 episode of every actor to play the Doctor (one only made 1 appearance) so far, so yes, I suspect at Christmas, I’ll be watching the new one, to see what I think, and to get her reaction to the dramatic change, which should be fun! My favorite (easily) of the new group would have to be Tennant, and of the original group, Pertwee, and Tom Baker would probably be the ones.
I know, at some point in the future, I’m not going to see the new Doctor, because I’m pretty sure they’re going to outlast me! But for now…Yes, fine, I’d still rather play a Cyberman, anyway! 😛
Right, the video. Nothing very original, though the tribute was out of date, even before now, as no Capaldi in it.
