The Thirteenth Doctor from Doctor Who as played by Jodie Whittaker
Today is the debut of the 13th Doctor in the long-running science fiction show “Doctor Who’ Jodie Whittaker assumes the role as the first woman to do so. Every time there is a new person playing this iconic role we wonder what they will be like and what they will do. I believe with Whittaker who is a great actress she will make The Doctor her own and treat the role and the institution with reverence and respect. She will be brilliant!
It’s OK to look up to women…Jodie Whittaker, from Doctor Who
Some other folks were making changes to their blog and I did to today. I am using the Twenty-Sixteen theme and I am honoring the thirteenth Doctor from Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker by the header image which comes from the BBC. You should be able to read the posts better and the images will be bigger too. Thank you for continuing to visit and read what I am posting.
Keep on blogging folks!
This is Jodie Whittaker who is now the 13th Doctor of the long-running British sci-fi series Doctor Who. Jodie is making history as the first woman to play this iconic role.
Thank you Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat for what you brought to Doctor Who.
Today it was announced that a woman would play the 13th Doctor on the long-running British TV show “Doctor Who” until now the role has been portrayed by men. Capable men who told the unique story of a Time Lord. You cannot stop progress though. Jodie Whittaker, the first woman cast in the lead of this important show, will assume the role at Christmas time. It’s been a long time coming and it will mean the show will be somewhat different but you know it will also be the same.
Science fiction is about imagining the future and to dream of a better place for us all to exist in the universe. In my mind the future should be gender inclusive, age inclusive, equality minded and based on the idea that it take 100% of the population to get the job done. Sydney Newman created “Doctor Who” with change in mind. Unfortunately some are missing the point of what a Time Lord is and can be. Women are warriors, they are valuable, they are worthy to take the lead.
Lately we have seen women win the day at the box office in roles that are strong and fierce, so there is an audience there. We are in an age where we need women to remind us of what it means to imagine life in Time And Relative Dimensions In Space from a different but equal viewpoint. In the era in which we live now we need women’s role models so that our wives, sisters, daughters and the like will be inspired to dream a very possible dream. Timey Wimey, Wibbly Wobbly. Time keeps on ticking into the future and that future is female.
