Apparently some nerds are freaking out about a female doctor.
Well count me as a happy freak.

I meant in a bad way. Saw something on Facebook (can't find it now) that their are some fans who are very upset about it.
Is that a Putin picture on the plate in the background?
My favourite of the negative reactions has been "what next, Jackie Chan's Poirot?" To which the obvious response is "hell yes, sign me up!"
It's INSANE to think that an alien that can reincarnate as any form would ever choose to be anything other than a white male human.

I am very happy. There are female actors I may have chosen over her (Tilda Swinton's an obvious one), but movie stars are expensive, so I doubt she'd ever do it. I haven't seen Broadchurch, so I can't judge her acting chops other than only seeing her in Attack The Block with John Boyega (that's a cracking little film if you've not seen it).My main worry is that Chibnall is the new showrunner, and he's been responsible for some of the worst of the nu-Who scripts.

Any Doctor that isn't Tom Baker is a fake doctor and should have his license pulled.
I have to say, Christopher Ecclestone was one of my favorites.
