If Young Boys Can't View A Female Time Lord As A Role Model, That's Society's Problem, Not Doctor Who's

It was Belle in 'Beauty And The Beast', Ariel in 'The Little Mermaid', Jasmine in 'Aladdin'. All of them frustrated, all of them wanting to explore a world that felt impossible to reach, all of them misunderstood or underestimated. And all of them got what they wanted in the end. So when I see people complaining that young boys are losing out now that a female actor has been cast as The Doctor, I struggle to accept that as a valid argument.

If you are a public figure, though, you are not fair game. You do not deserve 'everything and anything that comes your way'. All of us are potentially vulnerable, so the perpetrators of online abuse must be made to take responsibility for their actions. Confiscating their phone and a rap on the knuckles is not nearly enough of a deterrent.

The First Female Doctor, Or The Thirteenth Doctor?

Leah Broad | Posted 17.07.2017 | UK Entertainment
Leah Broad

It's completely unfair on Whittaker to frame this achievement through her gender. She is the thirteenth Doctor, and a formidable actor. As a Doctor Who fan, I'm looking forward to seeing what she does with the role - will she go in Broadchurch's emotionally tortured direction, or give us something more in the vein of her St Trinian's performance? Or something entirely different?
