Never heard of him. But then I had never heard of Jodie Whittaker before Doctor Who either :rofl:

not having watched the thing hes in on netflix i cant say ive heard of him either , but i have to say i can hear the haters already sadly

I made the mistake of reading the comments section of The Telegraph web site about this (free subscription given to me by my dad - would not have bought it for myself) already has the Alf Garnett’s of this world complaining about “white culture” disappearing and the usual moaning about woke brigades, etc.

I think Mr. Gatwa is going to be a fine Doctor. I haven’t seen him in Sex Education or anywhere else, but having looked at various interviews, he certainly has the personality and gumption for the role. I think he’s going to do just fine. I kind of get a Matt Smith feeling about him - he’s going to have lots of manic energy.

Only fair to give him a crack at the role and see what he makes of it. I don’t know the chap but love Dr. Who. We need a good one next. R-

My other half told me who was replacing the Doctor and the first thing I said was oh I can’t wait to see all the comments on this (sarcasm) So petty and ridiculous.

I can’t wait to see him in Dr. Who - Jodie had a few good episodes, most were just Meh, personally I really like her Kablam episode.

I’m hearing good things on here

I agree, hence why I stopped watching.

I can’t wait for them to find out that Peter Davison is mixed race.

do you want them to have a heart attack :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

If the new guy’s Dr Who characterisation is anything like his Sex Education character, race is going to be the least of their worries.

Yeah - this is the problem with Jodie’s time as the Doctor. I think it’s not her and actually the issue was with Chris Chibnell, the current producer.

I think the problem with the last few seasons has been that Chris Chibnell probably wrote bad fanfic when he was younger. When he took charge, he thought that fanfic would be great for the show - like the whole 'actually there’s been hundreds of reincarnations of the Doctor that they don’t remember and secretly they’re the whole reason why the Timelords exist nonsense.

Chris can be a talented writer (Broadchurch proved that). But he was a hack with Doctor Who. I would’ve liked Jodie to have a season under a different producer to see what she could really deliver.
