No this is taking political correctness too far. I will never watch Dr Who again. At the finish of the Wimbledon men's final the thirteenth doctor was announced. Finally the BBC has chosen a woman. Many feminists will disagree with me but I grew up with Dr Who and he is a man.

Oh no I agree with you Gill. That is going too far as I also watched the original Dr Who in England no way.

I remember the very first Dr Who. I was just a nipper. Our liberal elite must be in seventh heaven. It's one less role model our boys have now.

To be honest, feminism has gone too far. I think I heard that 007 will be a woman! That's it for me. I'm done.

Anyone would be an improvement over the current too short, ineffectual actor for me.

My daughter is very pleased too. Jodie Whittaker is a great actress and I hope she isn't pilloried by social media. I still feel Dr Who should be a man.

This sounds weird, it is the same when they choose a woman to impersonate "M" in 007 movie. For me "M" will always be a man.

Political correctness has gone too far. It's bad enough that our young men are feminised already. I read in a newspaper that Southern Rail will not say 'good evening ladies and gentlemen' anymore for fear of offending trans-genders.

It used to be excellent. I have no doubt that Jodie Whittaker is a good actress but Dr Who is a man. 'Sob'.

It's a television series that started in 1963.

@Gillygirl but Dr. Who is now a woman, so the TV series did not stop since 1963?

Funny, had Dr Who regenerated as a woman 4-5 years ago it wouldn't have fazed me at all. Now it feels like an attempt to jump on the political correctness bandwagon. Sigh.

@JamesHxstatic Jodie Whittaker is a good actress so I will give the program a chance but still feel it is a male role. Also lol I like some eye candy.

I agree. It just doesn't seem right to be a woman. I don't watch Dr. Who, but I have seen a few episodes. Does that mean Dr. Who has been on for 13 years or just the 13th person to play the part?

Dr Who has been screened for 50 years and it was rumoured that the 13th doctor would be a woman. Fans are furious.

I gave up watching Dr Who when I was about 12 during Jon Pertwee's last year. I have zero interest in science fiction of any kind but I would have thought that if there is a problem it's how to make her seem less normal, as most of the Doctors seem to have been eccentric bordering on weird.

Usually I would agree but given the fact that the Dr changes ever few years, it seems this is inevitable and should just be another iteration,

Though I have heard of Dr. Who, I know nothing about the show. I heard an interview just today though that indicated the good doctor was an immortal alien who could become whomever he wished (as I recall). I can't help thinking that it is time for a female Dr. Who after fifty years.
