'Doctor Who' has for many years entertained sci-fi fans and pushed the boundaries of the genre like never before.

Jodie Whittaker Doctor Who

Jodie Whittaker is glad that she can finally reach out to Phoebe Waller-Bridge and apologise for all the 'Doctor Who' rumours she had to deal with in the run-up to the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor. Jodie was so under scrutiny that she couldn't so much as text her friend.

The BBC always like to keep the identity of the next Doctor super secret until the right moment, which put a lot of pressure on Jodie Whittaker when she was told she was to take over from Peter Capaldi. She opened up about her big secret to Dermot O'Leary on BBC Radio 2 and apologised to her 'Broadchurch' co-star.

David Tennant Says Jodie Whittaker's Gender Will Be "Irrelevant" When She Plays 'Doctor Who'


David Tennant Jodie Whittaker Doctor Who

Amid the backlash from some quarters against the casting of a female Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi show’s former star David Tennant has backed the newly announced Jodie Whittaker, saying that her gender will be “irrelevant almost immediately” when she makes her debut.

The 46 year old actor, who played the Time Lord between 2005 and 2010, chatted with American talk show host Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’ on Thursday (August 10th). He said that although Whittaker’s appointment was the first time a woman has played the Doctor, the character has never been of any fixed gender, so a male actor is as relevant to the part as a female one.

“Whenever the Doctor changes, there’s a backlash,” Tennant explained. “Sure, Jodie is from a different gender – but that will be irrelevant almost immediately when she takes the part. It’s about finding the right performer at the right time, and that’s Jodie without a doubt.”

Here's Why Reports Are Saying Doctor Who Will Be Bisexual


Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker

With the new Doctor Who becoming a woman for the first time, there are rumours that there may be some sexual fluidity for the first time too. It certainly makes sense; while the Timelord's biological make-up changes with each regeneration, the memories of lost loves always stays the same.

We know that the Timelord civilisation is far more advanced than mankind; as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) mentioned in 'World Enough and Time' when he blasted gender stereotypes; so there's no reason why the Doctor can't be totally bisexual too. Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy (formerly the Master), hinted at as much recently when talking about the arrival of Jodie Whittaker.

Kris Marshall Could Land Role As Jodie Whittaker's Assistant In 'Doctor Who'


Kris Marshall Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker

Having been pipped to the post of the role as the next ‘Doctor Who’ by Jodie Whittaker when the BBC made its big reveal last weekend, Kris Marshall could reportedly yet land a place in the Tardis as the next Doctor’s assistant.

The 44 year old English actor had been the bookies’ favourite to be named as Peter Capaldi’s successor after he steps down after the upcoming Christmas special. However, the BBC confirmed on Sunday that the 13th Doctor would be 35 year old Whittaker, one of the stars of ‘Broadchurch’, who would be the first woman to play the Time Lord.

However, despite his disappointment at missing out on the title role, new reports suggest that former ‘Death In Paradise’ and ‘My Family’ star Marshall could be in line to be the new Doctor’s companion.

'Doctor Who' Fans Believe BBC Accidentally Revealed The Identity Of The Next Timelord


Doctor Who

The BBC may have just dropped a significant hint as to who Peter Capaldi’s successor as the Timelord will be on ‘Doctor Who’.

At the end of Monday night’s (July 3rd) episode of ‘Newsnight’, presenter Evan Davis suggested that ‘Fleabag’ actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be the next Doctor on the long-running BBC sci-fi series.

“If you watched ‘Doctor Who’ on Saturday there were some pretty heavy hints that the next Doctor might be a woman,” Davis said to camera. “Well the bookies’ favourite Phoebe Waller-Bridge has denied claims that she’s going to be the first female Doctor… But then Joanna Lumley has already played the role for Comic Relief, so that would technically be true.”

Doctor Who Peter Capaldi Pearl Mackie

The third episode of 'Doctor Who' series 10 is coming this weekend, and with it some very serious themes regarding race and the 'whitewashing' of history.

With the Doctor's (Peter Capaldi) latest companion being the mixed-race Bill (Pearl Mackie), she's raised some questions about how her race might affect how people treat her when they go back in time in the TARDIS in the next episode 'Thin Ice'. Of course, the Doctor's seen more race wars in the history of the universe than anyone, so we're sure he'll have some insightful comments to make on this subject.
