BBC makes a wise choice


The BBC has chosen a new Doctor
for its long running TV show "Doctor Who" and this time they made a huge change from the usual run of Scotsmen they have gone with in the past.
The lead role in British sci-fi television series "Doctor Who" will be played by a woman for the first time in its more than 50-year history, the BBC said on Sunday.

After much speculation over the role, Britain's public broadcaster said 35-year-old British actress Jodie Whittaker, who starred in the award-winning television crime drama series "Broadchurch", will play the 13th Doctor.

The news was announced in a one-minute video clip broadcast on television after the Wimbledon tennis men's final match, showing the actress walking through a forest wearing a long coat and hiding her face with a hood until the final moment.

"I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role," said Chris Chibnall, the show's new Head Writer and Executive Producer.
Hopefully the writing for future episodes will be as intelligent as the choice. The selection of Ms Whittaker should open up a whole new range of plot possibilities. Let's see if the producers are smart enough to use them.
