Would Lara Pulver Be Your Female Doctor?

The perennial “female Doctor” question has reared its “ugly to some, attractive to others” head this week thanks to an Evening Standard interview with the rather lovely Lara Pulver.

Best known as Irene Adler in Steven Moffat’s Sherlock (although younger fans may recognise her as Isabella Gisborne from BBC One’s Robin Hood), Pulver was asked about whether she would appear in Doctor Who.

“Steven and I have both said we thoroughly enjoyed working together, and then there was me being in Wales so the media put two and two together.”

Of course, there is no yes or no answer given there… there’s also scant indication in the wider interview as to whether she would return to Sherlock or not.

Fans of the idea of a female Doctor would perhaps be more interested in Lara’s answer to whether or not she would like to play the lead role…

“Yes and no. Not if it meant the end of the Doctor Who franchise, because the fans aren’t keen on it.”

Let the pro/anti female Doctor discussion commence! (Again…)
