8 Female Candidates Who Could Theoretically Play the 12th Doctor in Doctor Who
The prospect of a female Doctor has been floated in the past, but "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffat introduced the possibility in an interview over the weekend ahead of next Saturday's seventh-season debut.
'Can I just ask, how many people would continue watching quite happily and believe it was the same person if the Doctor turned into a woman?'
While the response was inconclusive, he added: 'It is a part of Time Lord law that it can happen.
'I put the reference in the episode The Doctor's Wife to the fact that a Time Lord could potentially turn into a woman.
'Who knows, the more often it is talked about the more likely it is to happen some day, suppose.'
It's that last quote that I'm particularly fond of: "The more it is talked about the more likely it is to happen some day." Naturally, I want to do my part in keeping the conversation -- and thus, the possibility -- alive, so I present you with eight possibilities who I believe would appropriately combine gravitas and playfulness to create an ideal female doctor.
