Change my dears and not a moment too soon – she IS the Doctor whether you like it or not!

Oh great a female Doctor Who. What next? Female real doctors? Female pilots? Female scientists? Female sisters and mothers? Female WOMEN?!

It's hilarious watching people on twitter try and come up with reasons a fictional shape shifting alien can't be played by a woman #doctor13

Never mind that the new Doctor Who is a woman – she's from YORKSHIRE. New catchphrase: "switch that immersion off; I'm not made of money"

If you're fine with "magically regenerating time-travelling alien" but struggle with "female", have a word with yourself! #doctor13

To misogynists moaning about #Doctor13: You’re not the target audience. It’s aimed at children w/ grown-up minds, not the other way around.
