Chibnall casts Jodie Whittaker as first female Doctor Who

Lundi, 17 Juil, 2017

Whittaker, who found fame as Beth Latimer, mother of murder victim Danny, in Broadchurch, said it felt "incredible" to take on the role. The decline in Doctor Who's ratings is directly linked to the decline in quality.

"[Jodie's] audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away".

"The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one", Whittaker smiled. Maybe because it gives you an opportunity to demonstrate your superiority to 'white fanboys' who want to put the show 'back in the past'.

Whittaker, who has starred in the UK series Broadchurch, Joe Cornish's outstanding Attack the Block, and one of the best episodes of Black Mirror, will serve as the 13th doctor, following the footsteps of Peter Capaldi, who announced he would be leaving this past January.

Will Howells, who writes for the Doctor Who magazine, feels the decision shouldn't be considered a big deal.

Others were thrilled, with one post retweeted thousands of times showing a girl watching the trailer before exclaiming excitedly: "The new doctor is a girl!" Her performance earned Whittaker nominations for the British Independent Film Awards and the Satellite Awards. Millions of men adored the likes of Buffy Summers and Ellen Ripley. In an interview with BBC, "The Assets" actress continued, "Because this is a really exciting time, and 'Doctor Who' represents everything that's exciting about change".

Trump Jr's. meeting with Russian stupid, treasonous
" Donald Trump Jr . said not in the context of formal meetings , that he may have met with Russian people". It became obvious this was the talking point of the day, and unfortunately it was a completely false point.

In the last decade, however, there has been persistent speculation that a future incarnation of The Doctor might be female.

But is it Time Lady now?

The announcement will both delight and stun fans as the iconic time traveller has, for the last five decades at least, been male.

And in the Star Wars' universe Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, and Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones, also proved that male-dominated franchises could be reinvented for the modern day with women taking a leading role. Anna (Whittaker) lives in her mum's shed, rapidly nearing her 30th birthday with no idea what she's doing.

That move effectively changing the character from The Master to her new name, "Missy", and established that a change of gender during regeneration was possible. It's always great though, always giving a sense of character and style. And, with a little affection, the multiple regenerations of The Doctor featured in the BBC charity broadcast Curse of the Fatal Death, including Rowan Atkinson, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and, finally, Joanna Lumley. What an insult to fantastic characters like Rose Tyler or Sarah Jane Smith, who had plenty of their own heroic arcs.

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris [Chibnall, new writer and executive producer] and with every Whovian on this planet", Jodie said. As such, it seems as good a time as any to pay tribute to the actor who will soon be replaced by this person - Peter Capaldi, the Twelfth Doctor.
