Jodie Whittaker has said in the past that she likes being a TV actor that can walk down the street without being recognised. Not any more! I'm both excited and nervous (you're nervouscited!) about a female Doctor. It's a big change, though of course the show is all about change. Mr Derpy is not happy about it and is pretty peeved that everyone with his point of view is being labelled a sexist. I'm concerned myself that it's a gimmick. I'll admit to being less excited, or maybe just differently excited, for a new Doctor than I would usually be. The excitement is tempered by the nerves. It is a risk, especially at a time of reduced ratings. Then again I wouldn't worry too much when Doctor Who is one of the BBC's biggest exports, though I'd hate for this to be a reason for that to change. Why is it that Doctor Who's ratings are so criticised though when Love Island only gets 2 million and is talked about as if the whole country loves it?
