    The next season will be different as it's Chris Chibnall taking over. I'm a bit nervous about it, considering the episodes he's written but we will see.

    I thought this last series has found it's way back to it's roots............:D I've even started watching again after Matt Smith and his story lines ruined it for me.

    Some fiesty characterful woman would be good. Jo Brand or Janet Street-porter or someone similar :D

    I gave up watching it a couple of series ago . Too much Victorian stuff and sonic screwdrivers . Also its too grown up now , it was more fun when it was a simpler format.

    They seem to be hinting that it's a woman, but I can't really think of a British actress that'd fit the role - it'd need to be someone with a lot of character either way.
    I thought this season was really childish, honestly. I get that it's a cheesy show and that's the charm of it but some of the episodes in the past few seasons have been dreadful.

    I gave up watching at the absolutely ridiculous Robin Hood episode. My many years of goodwill totally ran out that week. I hated the sight of Clara or whatever her damn name was. And Calpaldi was doing nothing but sulk and shout like a 6ft toddler.

    I only came back to see how good Bill was and she was better than I expected. And I liked Nardole and Capaldi had settled into the role. Moffatt still couldn't resist Mary Sue-ing the companion though.

    I have no objection to women time lords and in fact people that follow the series will know that we have a woman time lord in the form of David Tenants Doctors daughter. I would watch a series of Doctor Who's daughter but having watched Doctor Who for over 45 years I am used to the Doctor being male and I think changing gender just to be politically correct and that really is the only reason for doing so as far as I am concerned would be risky!

    When they first mentioned a woman from Broadchurch I thought it was Olivia Coleman

    well the gone and done it, bowed to political correctness, Ive never heard of her, but then maybe for me thats a good thing, cos I could never watch Peter Capaldi without waiting for a stream of expletives to leave his mouth
    I hope they remember that a female Time Lord is actually a Rani

    Exactly.. but I reseve judgement,, When I saw Peter Capaldi I thought wonderful , he looks like Dr Who but I really havent enjoyed his time as Dr and OH refuses to watch it. So who knows maybe this Jodie whatsherface will be great.

    @dorrit I was surprised when they chose Matt Smith as Dr Who and was surprised at how good he was.

    My favourite one from recent times is Christopher Eccleston.
