It was about time we were blessed with a female doctor, and luckily Jodie Whittaker is absolutely killing it. Her performance as the 13th Doctor reflects the last few doctors before her.
I was truly worried beforehand because if Jodie did not succeed it would give showrunners the get-go to not casts female leads. However, Jodie has proved that she can take this show and give a performance that supersedes some of her male predecessors.
I was also pleasantly surprised to see POC companions! This is the most progressive the show has been in a while, and it makes me proud to be a doctor who fan.
Let me know what you thought of Jodie’s performance. How do you feel about a female doctor?
