    I wasn't a fan of the last three "series," so I'm excited to start back up with a new Doctor and show runner. Loved Broadchurch and Jodie's performance, so, I'm ready for it.

    Never knew there were Who bros until todays witnessing them being offended by a female doctor.

    Really? I enjoyed Capaldis run. I didn't like his first series nearly as much as his second and third, but I did enjoy them all. I think series 8 might be my favorite of new Who. That being said, I'm looking forward to what Chris and Jodie will bring to the show.

    As much as I love this announcement, I really hope they follow through with behind the camera talent as well.

    A woman Doctor written and directed exclusively by men would be a shame.

    It was a slog but this last season I liked.

    I am excited for this loads. It's a shake up to the formula, she was fantastic(insert 9th doctor voice here) on Broadchurch, and the show runner from Broadchurch taking over....good things are brewing

    Loved Capaldi, but I'm really excited to see this fresh take! And screw anyone not willing to give it chance just because of an alien being's gender.

    I've tried to get into this show but it's just too dorky/sci-fi for me.

    I don't understand why Dr. Who fans are upset though.

    It's not just the sexism, but the complete unoriginality of it all. I opened the Facebook comments of the announcement on the BBC page, and 3/7 comments were "rip doctor who 63-17"

    The only thing that will make me hate this new Doctor? If she's fucking awful. That's it. That should be the only thing that makes fans angry at this casting choice.

    I liked Capaldi but most of the episodes he was written into were not great. I haven't seen the new season yet. Clara was the worst part of the show for a while, just a watered down version of better companions (through no fault of Jenna Coleman, who did her best). I'm hopeful for the show's future!

    Last season was his best, but still pales in comparison to the ones before him imo. I have high hopes for the future though, if you haven't seen Broadchurch, the writing on that show and the show itself is just plain great. And now the showrunner taking over DW

    Moffat is going out on a high, with his last three series being his strongest by far. I'm going to miss Capaldi quite a bit, he's my Doctor. But I'm so so excited for Jodie Whittaker, it seems that the show is in good hands! Time for a change.
