I am surprised at the media backlash the new Dr is receiving. Shocked

I am not a regular follower of Dr Who, I have watched only a few seasons, so what do you more regular watchers think, is this backlash deserved? Confused

Professor, in my case, I am a traditionalist as far as the Doctor is concerned and I fear that the change to Female lead was due more to political Correctness more than by talent, but unlike some who are screaming that they will not watch Doctor Who because of the change, I am willing to see how she does and what she does to make the Doctor her own, without forgetting all those who came before her.

I also think a lot will be also determined by the Companion or Companions they choose to accompany her. I hope they do not give her a female Companion, although a male and female might be all right.

The big thing is I wish they would have had a video tape of her talking about getting the role instead of just posting transcripts of questions and answers. I would have liked to have seen her reaction to getting the role and to watch her as she answered the questions. I remember the introduction of Peter Capaldi and it was exciting to see how excited he was to have gotten the role, to hear it in his voice and to see his eyes light up as he talked about his own love of the Doctor. . .we haven't seen that from Jodie.

I am worried as the ratings were dropping for Doctor Who and if it ends up that she doesn't cut it, that it may be the end of the show.

As a lifelong Doctor Who fan, I agree 100% with Lord Scarz.

Regarding companions, I had kept away from rumours about the identity of the new Doctor before the Thirteenth was appointed, but I saw today that a name favoured as a new companion is an actor who was apparently a hot favourite (according to fans, I guess… obviously not the BBC's final choice though…) for Doctor. That makes me hope they don't cast him as a companion (even though he'd be excellent), because then he could never be Doctor… and knowing the actor's previous work, he would make a great Doctor. *smiles*

I understand, thanks for explaining, both of you. :3

I am not a lifelong Doctor Who fan, I only discovered it while I was at uni, so maybe I am not as sensitive to a female doctor as I understand, someone who has followed the show for quite a while and is a fan of it, would be.

I am looking forward to see what Jodie brings to the table though, she has got some big shoes to fill. :3

I'm a new Whovian, having started watching with the 9th Doctor, and I am so excited about the 13th Doctor! I am sad that, just as there was such magic between 12 & Bill, that
they changed Doctors & companions on us now. I personally think that 12 should never have been paired with Clara in the first place.


I'm just sad I have to wait so long for the new season.

The waiting is the hardest part. . .and the fact that the BBC is leaking very little information about the New Doctor and the New Companions. . .I am a Doctor Who traditionalist and I am hoping they haven't screwed up the show with their New Doctor, but we shall see. . . .eventually!

My husband is also a Doctor Who traditionalist. His Doctor is
#4, Tom Baker. But he's crazy excited about this new Doctor.Mostly because "she's hot" (his words) He's a dork. lol
