'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.”

Peter Capaldi Will Leave 'Doctor Who' at the End of 2017

Peter Capaldi has announced that he will leave Doctor Who at the end of the year.

The 58-year-old actor joined the series in 2013 and his last episode will be the Christmas special at the end of 2017.

“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best,” Peter told BBC Radio. “From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.”

Showrunner Steven Moffat will also exit the series after the Christmas special.

“For years before I ever imagined being involved in Doctor Who, or had ever met the man, I wanted to work with Peter Capaldi. I could not have imagined that one day we’d be standing on the Tardis together,” he said in a statement (via THR). “Like Peter, I’m facing up to leaving the best job I’ll ever have, but knowing I do so in the company of the best, and kindest and cleverest of men, makes the saddest of endings a little sweeter.”

Doctor Who's New Companion Makes Debut in Season 10 Trailer!
