They should have broken the mold on the new Dr, and gone either for a minority Male, or else a teenager Dr!

I am not sure they should have gone any specific direction just to go that way really. I did not have a huge problem with a female Doctor as such but I did not like how they got there.

I think I said it before but my preference was a female Time Lord takes up the mantle in honor of the Doctor after the real Doctor vanishes. How he goes is up to the writers, but presumably another reality where he either loses the TARDIS (the newer Doctor would use it) or just ends up there and stuck.

So you have a few seasons of a female Doctor running around trying to fill the big shoes but without the experience. So, you get a potentially interesting story on several fronts all while not changing too much at once.

Then if that goes well you may consider it, but naw.

I also think that casting is really critical. You need good stories and good actors. The race, gender or age do not matter as much as that.

I actually think Jodi Whittiker is a decent actor, this is just not the role she is best at in the end. And the writing does not favors for her either. They are pretty much throwing stuff in your face to cause change just for changes sake. And then tieing themselves in knots trying to make sense of it as they go.

Look Raist bunnies...
