The Captain Jack Harkness actor, a regular on sofas on ITV and BBC shows, was this time appearing on the Daybreak show, where he asked, “why shouldn’t we have a female doctor?”

Give it a whirl, if it doesn’t work she can always regenerate, she can always regenerate back to a man – I’ve been there, I’ve watched them do it.

Does this self-confessed fan mean what he says, or is this just a quick and easy way to grab some publicity?

Either way, we think David Tennant put it best…
