Tracy-Ann Oberman Loses Plot

It’s probably best to politely file this one on the ‘maybe’ pile but former Doctor Who guest star Tracy-Ann Oberman has tipped writer, performer and presenter Sandi Toksvig to be the first female Doctor…

While there’s no faulting her reasoning that someday there has to be a female Doctor (you’re sure about that? – Ed) , her choices are a little left-field, recalling the stunt casting of the worst of JNT’s era – as well as flying in the face of the ‘casting for the part’ ethos of most of the Moffat era:

I think next time there’ll have to be a female Doctor. There has to be at some point. I could see Sandi Toksvig as the Doctor… she’d be very Doctor-like! But it’ll probably be Cheryl Cole, won’t it?

Cheryl Cole? Most planets may have a north but are those areas auto-tuned as well?

Anyway, Tracy-Ann is full of praise for ‘her Doctor’ David Tennant and didn’t rule out a return to the show if she were offered a chance to reprise her role as the now very assimilated Yvonne Hartman from Series Two finale Army of Ghosts/Doomsday:

I love Doctor Who…Even if I was just to come back and smile in the back of shot I’d be very happy to do it.

Tracy-Ann can currently be seen in ITV 1 medical drama Monroe and her own audio play Rock, Doris and Elizabeth airs on Radio Four on 16th October.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
