Trivia

Several British politicians publicly supported the Doctor's sex change in 2017. In February 2017, prominent Labour politician and staunch feminist Harriet Harman was reported as having announced her support for the next Doctor to be a Time Lady. Speaking at a Westminster lunch, Harman said: "Of course there should be a female Doctor Who, but what we need is a man as her assistant. She has got to just tell him what to do, he will need that leadership." In July 2017, former Labour leader Ed Miliband also tweeted to criticize Peter Davison's comments questioning the casting of a woman in the role, describing Davison's comments as "the views of the 1950s". British Prime Minister Theresa May was reported by the BBC website as welcoming the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor. A statement from her spokesman said that she was "pleased" by the decision. See more »

The Doctor is back, so are my childhood memories
26 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a child I used to love the Dr Who series and apparently I used to hide behind the sofa whenever the Daleks appeared. I think it must have been the voice. But over time the whole idea lost so much of its charm that it became a real pain to watch.

Well all that has changed, Every nostalgic moment I ever had about the doctor has come flooding back with this highly enjoyable reanimation of a childhood favourite, even though I am now well into my thirties.

Christopher Eccleston is great in the lead and Billy Piper makes the archetypal sidekick. This new incarnation is full of the humour and tongue in cheek appeal that I hoped it would be. I just hope it keeps going as it started.

I have to give this a ten even if it's just because it's filmed in my home town of Cardiff, If not for the fact that is gives me a glimmer of what I liked in this series from when I was a very small child.

Thanks to everyone involved and keep it coming.
