Steven Moffat doesn’t bewail not casting a womanlike lead in “Doctor Who” out of fear of offending supportive viewers who didn’t wish a lady in charge.
“This isn’t a show exclusively for on-going liberals; this is also for people who voted Brexit,” the effusive showrunner told Radio Times.
“That’s not me politically at all — but we have to keep everybody on board.”
Moffat, 56, pronounced he deliberate replacing Matt Smith with a womanlike Doctor, but that never happened either.
“We could have transposed Matt Smith with a woman, given that his Doctor was some-more sexless and reduction of a lad, but then we got spooky with seeing Peter in the Tardis,” he said.
So instead, the longrunning BBC show waited for Moffat to leave to expel a woman.
“Broadchurch” star Jodie Whittaker will play the first womanlike Time Lord, replacing Peter Capaldi after the Christmas special.
“I’m over vehement to start this epic tour — with (head author and executive writer Chris Chibnall) and with every Whovian on this planet,” Whittaker pronounced in a matter after the casting was announced.
“It’s some-more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everybody we used to be, while stepping brazen to welcome all the Doctor stands for: hope. we can’t wait.”
