Cheers (and a few jeers) for Dr. Who casting announcement.
The Doctor, who can regenerate into different ages, accents, looks, personalities etc has randomly been 12 men and now one woman.

@LaurakBuzz, tweeting about the news that the 13th Doctor in “Doctor Who” will be a woman, played by actress Jodie Whittaker. Many saw the casting change as long overdue, but it drew detractors as well. “The Doctor is a man, it just works,” @AlexWadey1 tweeted.
I'll be able to buy my 5 year old niece Doctor Who merchandise where the woman is at the front. In charge. Not a companion. The Doctor. Fab.
