Doctor Who News no image

No Girls says RTD…

Speaking to The Telegraph, RTD reveals that he reckons it doesn’t matter how great the woman is – we can never have a female Doctor Who.

Regardless of whether it is Judy Dench, Lesley Sharp or even Amy Winehouse, RTD is certain the Doctor will always be a Time Lord.

"I am often tempted to say yes to that to placate everyone but, while I think kids will not have a problem with [a female Doctor], I think fathers will have a problem with it because they will then imagine they will have to describe sex changes to their children"

Not only does he manage to get his thought sin the papers by namechecking Ms Winehouse, he also manages to slag off a portion of Doctor Who fandom…

"They are not real fandom, though, they are a core of mostly men who like to complain," he said. "Fandom is bigger and richer than that, and they are only about 1,000 people who give everyone else a bad name and build their life around a show."

Don’t hold back Russell, tell us what you really think!
