I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble. A thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her — while she can never remember. … But for one moment… one shining moment… she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.
When I was a little girl on the playground in primary school, I was told that if I wanted to play ‘Doctor Who’ I would have to be Rose, the companion.
I would sit and watch the boy with the sonic screwdriver pretend to be my biggest hero as a child and I couldn’t play because I wanted to be The Doctor and “The Doctor is a boy!”.
I liked Rose, but she wasn’t The Doctor.
Jodie Whittaker was announced as the 13th Doctor two days ago and every time I see her face as The Doctor I get this fluttery, buzzing feeling. I am beyond happy.
I can feel my younger self jumping for joy and running away from make-believe Daleks with a sonic screwdriver on the playground with a massive grin on my face.
Just the thought of all the little girls that love Doctor Who now, feeling what I’m feeling makes me overwhelmed with happiness. Girls won’t be told they can’t be the Doctor by the boy with the sonic screwdriver anymore. They won’t be forced to be Rose like I was and that makes me want to cry from joy ❤️
