Bringing in a female Doctor would change the dynamic and open up a whole new field of storytelling potential. Every aspect of the show that has, up until now, felt so familiar will change entirely – giving the show a whole new unpredictable energy once again.
The fact is, one of the many reasons why there’s a call for a female Doctor is essentially for the same reason why people eventually begin to call for a new Doctor, or a new showrunner: Change offers potential.
Once again, I’m writing about this topic, and continuing to bang the drum in support of a female Doctor. I am really, really hoping we get one this time around – in many ways, it really does feel like the best possible move for the show.
If anyone happens to have a way of putting Phoebe Waller-Bridge in contact with Chris Chibnall, that’d be great…
