Tilda S would no doubt be very good, but I'm quite interested in Jodie's take on it. She's worked with some of the makers before and it seems likely to be a harmonious partnership on set.

Personally I prefer older Doctors, having grown up with Sylvester McCoy and Jon Pertwee (thanks to reruns), and for similar reasons I'm a big fan of Capaldi. Saying that I loved Matt Smith, and he was the youngest of them, so I'll admit to not being terribly consistent here.
Why do I bother?

I should probably watch some Peter Capaldi first.

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.

Same, he was pretty good. David Tenant however owned the role, best since Tom Baker IMO.

The last 2 are recent ones, the question was about pioneers of strong female leads in TV (yeah in this case more superhero than scifi but I was more focussed on the role per se than the genre)

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!"
That would be awesome.
"You foul Japanese upstart!"
"Chinese upstart, Madame".
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.
