‘Doctor Who’ Showrunner to Press: ‘Shut the Hell Up’ About Jodie Whittaker Backlash

7 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Outgoing “Doctor Who” showrunner Steven Moffat blames the media for what he says is a false narrative about backlash against the casting of a woman in the show’s title role.

“There has been so many press articles about the backlash among the ‘Doctor Who’ fandom against the casting of a female Doctor,” Moffat said Sunday at Comic-Con. “There has been no backlash at all. The story of the moment is that the notionally conservative ‘Doctor Who’ fandom has utterly embraced that change completely — 80 percent approval on social media, not that I check these things obsessively. And yet so many people wanted to pretend there’s a problem. There isn’t.”

Jodie Whittaker will take over the role of the Doctor from Peter Capaldi beginning next season. Whitaker will be the 13th actor to portray the character, and the first woman.

Steven Moffat Assumes They’ll Do More Sherlock

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The mystery and intrigue surrounding the as-yet-unconfirmed fifth season of Sherlock is becoming so complex – so frustratingly complex – that even Benedict Cumberbatch’s legendary sleuth would struggle to crack the case.

Not too long ago, Sherlock co-star Andrew Scott hinted that the as-yet-unconfirmed season 5 was around two years away due to complications with scheduling, though co-creator Mark Gatiss believes Scott was a little conservative in his estimations. Speaking to Radio Times, the series showrunner, who also plays the part of Sherlock’s elder brother Mycroft, stated in no uncertain terms that the show’s latest instalment won’t premiere until 2020 – if it premieres at all. The game may still be afoot, but you’d be best settling in for the long haul.

That’s something which co-creator Steven Moffat echoed at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, telling Deadline that he honestly doesn’t know what the future holds for the beloved series. »

Doctor Who Fans Are Thrilled With Jodie Whittaker, Says Steven Moffat

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The internet is still reeling from the announcement of the new lead for Doctor Who. As you’ve surely heard, Jodie Whittaker has been revealed to be the Thirteenth Doctor, taking over from Peter Capaldi who bows out in the Christmas special. We probably don’t need to point out that she’s also the first actress to take on the previously male-oriented role.

As you can imagine, everyone has reacted very calmly to this news and social media users have hardly had anything to say on the matter. Wait, no, that’s not right. We meant to say that the internet has been torn in two over the subject, with many people loving the decision while others are decreeing that it’s the worst thing that’s ever happened. It’s caused something of a storm within the media lately and as usual, the negativity is getting the most attention. »
