Doctor Who casting: Time Lords clash over 'loss of role model for boys'

Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Sat 22 Jul 2017 - 15:01

From The Guardian:
Peter Davison says Jodie Whittaker removes ‘vitally important’ hero for boys – but Colin Baker says he is talking ‘absolute rubbish.





Peter Davison, a former star of Doctor Who, has lamented the loss of a role model for boys after the part of the Doctor was given to a female actor for the first time.


Jodie Whittaker was revealed on Sunday as the 13th Doctor, in a move largely praised but which left some infuriated.


Among those who have criticised the casting is Davison, who played the fifth Doctor. Speaking before an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego, Davison said Whittaker, 35, was a “terrific actress” who would do “wonderful job” and that he hoped those who found it hard to adjust would watch “with an open mind”.


But the 66-year-old told the Press Association: “If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys, who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for. So I feel a bit sad about that, but I understand the argument that you need to open it up.


“As a viewer, I kind of like the idea of the Doctor as a boy but then maybe I’m an old fashioned dinosaur – who knows?”


Davison’s daughter, Georgia Moffett, played a cloned version of the Doctor in the series in 2008, and is married to David Tennant, who played the 10th Doctor.

To be honest I have to agree with Peter.

I understand both sides of this argument, they both make valid points. I do hope they have a male and female companion though in Series 11 so there are role models for both genders.

Just as long as the companion doesn't fancy the Doctor. I too can see both sides of the arguments.
