(Seriously, just WRITING 'she'... Eeee. *flails*)

ETA: I love the aesthetic of these mini videos. The nature intertwined with the magical/otherwordly. It sits right, and also has a very different textural feel to Moffat. (Which is good. Nothing will ever be Moffat Who, so I want a complete change.)

Also Thirteen's personal aesthetic is very much to my liking. <3

Woman +
Never heard of her +
White -

Brave decision on her part because she is on a total lose-lose situation however stellar the writing is. She's where Jackie Robinson was in Baseball; where Obama was in 2007; where Hilary Clinton was last year.

More than any other actor she will be defined for the rest of her life by this moment. I hope she's ready for the hate that's going to be thrown her way.

Whether we like her or not, we who have wanted this for so long have to; HAVE TO, stand by her. She will need allies like no-one else on British Television.

I've never heard of her anyway; not before seeing her name mentioned -what? two days ago- in connection with this.

Why not?

re: Pioneer. I think that's what I was saying. Wish I'd though of looking up Shirley Chisholm's name as a pioneer.

I've never seen her in anything but the general consensus seems to be that she'll be good, so I look forward to learning more about her!

I'm certainly looking forward to how this will change the dynamic in the TARDIS - whoever we get as her companion(s) it will certainly be something new to explore. :-)

Heh, absolutely. To be fair, I'd never heard of most of the other Doctors before either (excepting only Peter Davison and Christopher Eccleston, and Capaldi I'd only seen in DW/TW) and they all turned out great!

And oh gosh yes, a male companion who's actually as cool as all the young ladies have been, instead of annoyingly limp like Mickey and Rory (though they were great by the end)? That'd be fantastic!

Rory was not limp! He was the only thing that kept me watching until halfway through season six of that era. Only male companion in my top ten of all-time (when I include those of the old show and the modern incarnation.

Oh no, not for long, I agree and I absolutely loved him by the end, but he always seemed to be presented as weak and sheeplike in comparison to Amy, just as Mickey was to Rose, and I hated that.

Yeah, Capaldi was great in CoE. He is an amazing actor and I shall certainly be following him in whatever he does next!

Fair enough re. Rory. I do believe he was pretty cool underneath it all, it was just the way the scripts always seemed to be trying to make him seem all weedy, like just because he couldn't fight a vampire on his first outing or whatever.

There should, I totally agree. I just... I don't know, I felt like he was *supposed* not to be cool or something, even though he totally was, if that makes any sense?

I'd like to see a gender-non specific character, played by a woman myself (wishing Bill Potts was staying as I think it).

She was charming in Return to Cranford</>, though I wouldn't necessarily take that performance as a measure of how she's going to do as the Doctor. For one thing, she was playing a rather Put Upon Victoria Maiden. Another, that was filmed 8 years ago, so there's a bit of water under the bridge since then.

I highly recommend watching Attack the Block, which is a very Doctor Whoish scifi movie about a council estate in London that gets invaded by aliens.

(as a bonus, it also stars John Boyega)

And I agree that the most interesting thing about this is how the dynamics will change.

Broadchurch is terrific and stuffed full of DW alumni. I tried it for the first time when I was home sick one day and ended up watching the entire first series in the same day. There are only 24 episodes, so plenty of time to watch before Christmas!

*shows up randomly to recommend Attack the Block to anyone who hasn't seen it*

I think that was the first thing I saw Jodie Whittaker in - or at least the first thing I remembered her from, since I watch a LOT of costume drama and must have seen her in Cranford and Tess of the d'Urbervilles. She's really good in it, and deals well with aliens (a plus for her new job) - and of course, it also stars baby John Boyega.

Awesome!

So between this and Boyega in Star Wars, I expect a lot of Attack The Block crossovers...

Yay!!!

(I am a couple of seasons behind on DW, since I'm only watching it as it comes out on Canadian Netflix, but I have seen Broadchurch—it being on Canadian Netflix—and I think Jodie Whittaker will be a brilliant Doctor! I can hardly wait until I get to see her in the role!)
