One of the most recent things that I have noticed in social media on Doctor Who is the new #13 doctor who is a girl the actor, Jodie Whittaker, and all the uproar about her. Many people we very excited to see a women doctor for the first time in the series. I feel like it’s a really good idea since the world is changing and it’s not a male dominated series as much anymore and it has attracted a female audience. A lot of the supported took to social media, and when I looked on twitter about the gender dilemma there was a lot of people supporting the decision of the female doctor. It was not just female support though, there was a lot of guys supporting this. I think this is great of the community to support her because there has not been a bad doctor in my opinion and to assume this new doctor could be bad because it is a woman is a terrible use of judgment. Jodie Whittaker seems like a great choice for an actor because she has been in many movies and with as much experience as she has gotten from her twenty plus movies she has been in I think she will do great.
Unfortunately, though there are a surprising amount of people who disagree with this choice of having a doctor be a female. Some of the comment I find very confusing, very inconsiderate, and self-centered. Some being that if a woman can be a doctor why can’t a horse be one and one saying that they ruined the show for them and their young song. First off, these comments by these people seem very unnecessary because you do not know how this doctor is going to be maybe she turns out to be your favorite doctor. I think many people that are not supporting this decision are just over reacting from shock that they are finally changing the show a little bit. I feel that this is a great chance for the Doctor Who series to become even more diverse from its original state. I am curious though as to who the doctor new companion will be, as in will it stay as a female or will they change to companion to a guy now that the doctor will be a girl.
