Former Doctor Who Peter Davison says casting of woman means 'loss of role model for boys'

A former Doctor Who actor has hit out at the BBC’s decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the role, saying that the decision meant there is “a loss of a role model for boys”.

Peter Davison said she is a “terrific actress” but  that he has doubts that she is right for the role.

He said before an appearance at  at Comic-Con in San Diego: “If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for.”

The veteran actor then commented: “So  I feel a bit sad about that, but I understand the argument that you need to open it up.”

He also said that he prefers the idea of the doctor as “a boy”, but conceded this could be because he is “a dinosaur”.

Davison played the fifth Doctor in the 1981–1984 series.

Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor and was Davison’s successor in the role, strongly disagreed.

Cannot deny that I am amazed by the ‘never watch it again’ reaction by some viewers ( I hesitate to call them 'fans’). Very sad

He said Davison’s remarks were “absolute rubbish”.

Mr Baker said: “They’ve had 50 years of having a role model. So sorry Peter, you’re talking rubbish there – absolute rubbish.”

“Well you don’t have to be of a gender of someone to be a role model. Can’t you be a role model as people?”

Peter was my first Doctor, so I gotta say, that’s disappointing.

Study on Female Serial Murderers

Weisheit (1984), in his research on incarcerated female homicide offenders, found that between 1981 and 1984, 77% of offenders had been unemployed at the time of their offense. He reported that the median age during the time frame was 27 years, that 65% of if the female offenders were black, and that 76% had children. Although the percentage of female serial offenders having children is comparable to female homicide offenders in general, some interesting differences exist between the two groups. For example, the female serial offenders were older (median age 31) and 95% were white. Most of these women went on killing for several years before they were finally apprehended. The killing period for this group of women ranged from a few months to over 34 years.

Seeing as the F1 season has just got underway, I thought I’d post a few of my shots of these classic Honda F1 and F2 cars. They are on display at the Honda Collection Hall which is located at the Twin Ring Motegi race circuit.

In order of appearance:

Nigel Mansell’s 1985 Williams FW10

Satoru Nakajima’s 1991 Tyrell 020

Stefan Johansson’s 1983 Spirit 201C

Keke Rosberg’s 1984 FW09

F2 - 1981 March Honda 812

F2 - 194 Ralt Honda RH-6-84

Here’s hoping that Honda can fix their performance issues this season. Would be great to see the McLaren/Honda partnership at the front of the field again. F1 viewership has been dwindling in Japan for a while now. A strong Japanese engine, team or driver is probably needed to increase popularity here again.
