I think everyone who seems so outraged that she is a woman is far too focused on political correctness. Is there anything in Doctor Who canon which says that The Doctor can not be a female? Why did people think that Doctor Who was going to always be portrayed by a man?
People need to grow up. Those who feel this has ruined the television series before series 11 has even aired are fucking idiots. Unfortunately every weak aspect of the new series will boil down to the sex of protagonist in the eyes of the Daily Mail and those who feel their childhoods have been destroyed. I watched the last episode of the last series with my dad yesterday and it was the only episode I have seen of it. I enjoyed it a lot but dad said that much of the series seemed to be lacking. That wasn't necessarily down to Capaldi who we know is an incredibly talented actor but in fact the entire team behind the show, including primarily the scriptwriters.
Jodie should be given a chance. I have only seen her act in Broadchurch but this will present a completely new challenge for her and I wish her the best.
