The Twelfth Doctor Regenerates: Peter Capaldi to Jodie Whittaker

'Doctor Who' Boss Responds to Female Doctor Backlash

Peter Capaldi appears on stage with Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat at the BBC America panel during 2017 Comic-Con on Sunday afternoon (July 23) in San Diego, Calif.

The guys were joined at the panel by Peter‘s co-stars Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas.

Steven responded to the backlash surrounding the casting of a woman, actress Jodie Whittaker, to be the next doctor.

“So many people wanted to pretend there’s a problem. There isn’t,” he said (via Variety). “[Fans] are more excited by the fact that there’s going to be a brilliant actress playing the part than the fact that she’s a woman. It’s been incredibly progressive and enlightened and that’s what really happened. I wish every single journalist who is writing the alternative would shut the hell up.”
