Doctor Who’s 13th Doctor will be played by a woman & it’s about time

British actress Jodie Whittaker has been named as the thirteenth Doctor Who.

The announcement will both delight and stun fans as the iconic time traveller has, for the last five decades at least, been male.

I’m no Doctor Who fan, in fact I’d go as far as to say I find it kind of generic & annoying, but that doesn’t mean that thousands of people don’t LOVE it and that I can’t heap praise on its show-runners in a change that finally introduces some gender balance to its lead role.

Well done.
