    Hey, steady on, Daz, I've high hopes that David Silva can be a future Dr Who when he decides to hang up his boots. He'd look absolutely spiffing in a long coat and a sky blue and white scarf!

    Ian Cheesman of all people was kicking off about this on Twitter.

    The Doctor is a gender neutral role unlike Miss Marple or Superman. I'm looking forwards to seeing what Jodie Whittaker brings to the role.

    I think that this should be 'has become a gender neutral role' 'cos when The Doctor appeared in '62, which incidentally took our minds away from City's abysmal showings, nobody would have had a clue what 'gender neutral' meant!

    never heard of her, which sums up Dr. Who these days. I'm sure she'll do great and considering the target audience it's a positive and important move.

    Seen her in marchlands amd attack the block, where both roles were well acted.

    I could't give a toss really if it's a man or a woman as long as the perfomances and stories are good.
    The idea that timelords could swap sexes has been around since the 4th doctor so it's nothing new, though a part of me thinks they have done it to stop it being a subject every time a regeneration comes along and tgey will just revert back to a bloke after.

    Really sad though all these people saying they won't watch it again, it's a tv show about an alien ffs.

    It was 1963. First episode was aired the day after JFK was shot, on Saturday 23 November 1963

    About 4 Million pepole over here, but it has about 8-10M in the US so makes the Beeb money.

    Will be kids, families, Sci-fi fans and avid fans.

    I watch it, but then I watch any sci-fi and Tom Baker and Peter Davidson were the doctors when a kid so still have fond memories.
    It's a load of nonsense most of the time but so is shite like corrie which still go strong despite very weak stories and making no sense (it's a giant swingers club in a street ffs).
