Doctor Who? 

For those who dont know. Doctor Who is a TV show brought to life by the BBC. Its a world wide phenomenon shown across the world, from Japan to America. (As well of course its home country the UK).  A Sci-fi tv show which follows the adventures of a timelord. The Doctor. 

Now this is where it kinda gets a little odd. In simple terms he never really dies. Instead they change the actor every so often giving them new sidekicks and adventures. The current actor is Peter Capaldi. The one before him Matt Smith, before him David Tennant and so on.

Though there’s been one major issue (to the audience so far) we’ve only had men take his character role. So there’s been outcry pleading for a female character. Unfortunately I disagree with this. This is due to his mind frame. He’s a man not a woman. And it has been made clear (sorry cant give examples) that the timelords have genders. Therefore the only way I’d see a female doctor was if she acted like a stereotypical male adventure/crazy mechanic. For a recent reference to the sort of character I’m suggesting to look at the new ghost busters character Jillian Holtzmann. As she takes on the role a similar sort of role to what I’m discussing. 

But for me as a previously mentioned that is not the issue at hand. Instead I’m going to point out that its all been White males. Stuff gender. Race is the real issue for me anyway. Note I’m a white male, so stuff stereotypes for one second. 

Now sure there has been black characters. Such as Clara Oswalds boyfriend and in the upcoming series his new sidekick is a black woman. But zero black doctors. I’m fully aware I’m stabbing at the dark here. As I’ve heard no complaints about this before today. But surely a TV series made by the BBC especially one so long lasting can have at least one lead character that’s black. 

So there we have it. Doctor Who needs to regenerate back as a Black Woman.
