I like that Helen Mirren has been saying the next doctor should be a woman. I would like to go on record and say that the Queen should be played by a man.

While I was pleased and excited to see that Zoe Ball, Stephen Hawking, along with previous Doctors including Matt Smith and Tom Baker, and many, many others were supportive of the next Doctor being a woman, I can’t even begin to describe my disappointment with this quote by Steven Moffat.

One of the most persistent arguments I’ve come across is that the Doctor has always been played by a man and therefore should always be played by a man, and with this quote, Moffat has reaffirmed their position.

And I honestly just cannot believe he said that. For several years now the groundwork has been laid for a regeneration from a man to a woman. While I would’ve been fine, if not thrilled, to see another man cast in the role, with this quote Moffat has indicated that he doesn’t think it’s plausible that the Doctor should ever be played by a woman.

I was ready to be happy for Peter Capaldi. I was ready to go forward and say we should all rally behind him. I was ready to be excited for the next fifty years of Doctor Who.

But now all I feel is a huge, aching sense of disappointment with Moffat.
