I mean, yes, I’m not expecting the BBC to be brave enough to cast a woman as the Doctor. Especially not with all the rumors that they “want to go back to the David Tennant era” with the handsome young Doctor and cute companion (can we not). But please, at least not another white man. Can we have that? A non-white Doctor?
I know the latest rumor is Kris Marshall (though considering the source I’d take it with a huge grain of salt), and he’s a good actor, I’m sure he’d do a good job, but I just don’t want that. I want something new. Doctor Who keeps on living because it always changes and takes risk. You can’t do that by going back to what you’ve already tried before.
I fucking swear if this “Kris Marshall” or whoeverthefuck is the next Doctor I’m goddam done with this show, I’m tired of being fucking disappointed about something that used to mean so much to me. 54 years and we can’t even deviate a LITTLE from a white cis male, what happened to all the women whose name’s were circulating?!!! I had such high hopes with Moffat finally leaving but fuck those dreams
