I didn't realise The Last Leg was [back] on!! I thought it had finished for the summer.

But huzzah, it's here to offer its own inimitable perspective on a female Doctor:



I have a ton of links & stuff re. the new Doctor, but tbh I'm not sure anything is gained by sharing it? Like, first of all I'll be preaching to the choir (I presume and hope), and secondly, I'm happy just being excited.

However I did want to share the icon I made. Owls (I think, or maybe it was Proton) pointed out how Thirteen's happy face upon seeing the TARDIS was just like Eleven's. So I made this. Feel free to snag. :)

Also, this Guardian article offers a lot of good insights. The thing is, you can't play the Doctor without BEING the Doctor, and Jodie certainly seems perfect:

1. The gift of the gab: “She’s fearless, that’s the thing. And when she decides she wants a job – and she’s quite selective about what she wants to do – she goes into a room and convinces them that they have to have her.”

2. The personality: At school, she has confessed, she didn’t have much interest in academic subjects, but was an unfailing show-off. “I was the attention-seeking child in class who needed everyone to look at meeee!”

:D :D :D

ETA: It's a funny thing though, the people who are 'not sexist, they just don't want a female Doctor' (a lot of them, sadly, being women). Or who just 'don't think it's the right time'. (Which, seriously? It's good the Suffragettes and those fighting for say, Civil Rights & Gay Marriage didn't take that stance.) The best way to change things is to just go ahead and change things. Nothing happens in a vacuum. People have been talking about a female Doctor since... the 80s? Moffat introduced one in 1999. And she was brilliant.

Also, I still remember how cross everyone was about Matt Smith, because he was too young and had no eyebrows.


(Re. meta on The Doctor Falls... um, I have started. Honest. Life is just being very busy.)

As people on Tumblr have been saying, the 60th anniversary looks interesting...



It's Christopher Eccleston (9) and Jodie Whittaker (13) in Antigone. And interestingly, her lines could be summed up as 'I do what I do because it's right!' Oh aye, she'll be a grand Doctor. In short - if you're wondering why she was cast, watch this. Big, angry righteous monologue, as if born to it. She'll be fantastic.

(Also, SO NORTHERN OMG. The Doctor is a Northern lass, I'm chuffed to bits. <3)

And this is apparently the current picture from the Doctor Who calendar:

(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

ETA2: I THINK THEY CHOSE WELL:

In short: Thirteen will be revealed after the Wimbledon Men's Final on Sunday 16th of July.
