After many months of speculation the 13th Doctor has been announced and it is non-other than the incredibly talented Jodie Whittaker.
The longer we waited for this announcement the longer and more ridiculous the list of possibilities became. Well, to Machinima SBOC’s standards it was. We really did have Kermit the Frog or Beaker as strong contenders to replace Peter Capaldi‘s incarnation. We’re so sad that it’s not.
Yet, some fans out there may not know who this actress is. With shows and films like Downton Abbey, Black Mirror, Attack the Block, and Black Sea already under her belt becoming the Doctor is the next logical step in her ascent to stardom.
While there are going to be a lot of fans and Whovians out there elated that the new Doc is a woman, sadly, as is with everything in life, there will be those who will not be happy about it. So let’s clear something up: the decision has been made, the actor has been cast, and new stories have been laid out. The Beeb will not be going back on their decision for a few people who are threatened by someone with a Y chromosome and the lead in a position of performing power. Like everything in life, give it a chance, you may be quite surprised by the shows new direction. Besides, the Doctor is an alien. They can be any gender or species they wish to be. Grow up. It’s about time if you ask us.
Keep an eye on Machinima SBOC as to when the next season begins and who else will be joining the team.
