Thirteenth Doctor

We don’t know much about her, but let’s just talk about the feeling of knowing that the Doctor is now a woman. For men, a lot of them were not happy. The Doctor has always been a white man. The argument was that he should remain as such, which doesn’t make any sense since the Doctor’s whole thing is that he regenerates.

So now, the Doctor is a woman. And we’re all going to have to figure out how we want to talk about the Doctor in the general sense, but seeing a woman take a turn as the thirteenth Doctor is truly something remarkable.

We have to see how Jodie Whittaker does with the role, but from the promos and that short reveal video, we’re all excited. First of all, she has an incredible outfit, and from the way she’s seemingly coming off, it is going to be a great season.

Doctor Who is starting to change the way women are treated in the series, and it is going to be a great thing to see. For years, we were only the companion but now, we can be the Doctor and travel throughout all of space and time on our own.
