Was it as good or as bad as people had predicted; will a female ‘Doctor Who’ change the world as we know it. Probably not!
It is not the end of a franchise because of one change in the cast – Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor Who is in fact the 13th actor to undertake the role. And with over 50 years under its belt, Doctor Who will probably continue for a long-time to come – past the casting of Whittaker and beyond.
But to all those people who are claiming they are not sexist and love the fact that Whittaker is taking over from Peter Capaldi – just stop it! It is these people who are going to say that anyone who despises this character change must be a hater of women. And that may not be the case at all!
We can all love and hate the show for many reasons. Bad script – bad casting; the list goes on and on. But how about we see what they do with the new season before we jump up and down and proclaim that this is the best news in the world!
Chicks on the Right reports:
If you don’t know the premise of the show, basically what you need to know is the Doctor is a time-and-space traveling alien who can “regenerate” – that is, he dies and is reborn as a brand new person. This has allowed the show to go on for over 50 years. When one actor wants to retire from the role, they can cast someone completely new to take his place. They also rotate through people playing the Doctor’s traveling companions, as well as showrunners and writers and other behind-the-scenes folks. It’s all built into the show and keeps it new and fresh and exciting. It’s one of the biggest appeals about the franchise.
