BBC Responds to Complaints About 13th Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker




-Despite an overwhelmingly positive response to the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor (and first female regeneration) on British cult classic Doctor Who, of course some sensitive Broflakes had to make an official complaint to the BBC as though their opinion matters.
-The BBC released an official statement on their complaints website in response which said, in brief, "SHE'S AN ALIEN GET OVER IT."
-
Complaint:
Some viewers contacted us unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor.

Response:
Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme. The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series.

The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender.

As the Controller of BBC Drama has said, Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor.

We hope viewers will enjoy what we have in store for the continuation of the story
