The Imitation 

So I wasn't after a female Doctor, not that I think it's a bad idea, I just would have preferred they focused on bringing back amazing female roles like the Rani, however within 10 minutes of the announcement I was already referring to Jodie as the Doctor, and that's how it should be. It's a shame to see so many fans of the show swayed in watching it just because of a change of sex when the whole ideology of the show is about change and kindness. So here's me, ready for the future of Doctor Who, I'm standing with Jodie Whittaker, I'm standing with the Doctor. #doctorwho #jodiewhittaker #13thdoctor #genderbender #timelady #doctorwhobbc #bbc #change #dw #drwho #13 #tardis #newdoctor #whovian #bbcamerica #thirteenthdoctorcosplay #doctorwhocosplay #be #pro #feminism #girlpower #themaster #thedoctor #cosplay
