It was just announced today that the 13th Dr. Who will be...a woman! WHAT was that? Yes, the new regeneration this time will be Jodie Whittaker, you might know her from the TV show, Broadchurch, which by the way also stars David Tennant, a former Dr. Who! (Um, I think the correct term is "regeneration", you have to forgive me, I honestly can't remember these kind of things.)
Here is my question for you, are you a Dr. Who fan? I must admit my favorite was Christopher Eccleston but I also quite enjoyed David Tennant. Here is a bit of trivia for you: David Tennant is married to Georgia Moffett and she is the daughter of the fifth Dr. Who, Peter Davison! Now, I know this is not the news of the week but it is one of those little facts that will forever and always lodge in my brain not doing me any good so of course I feel obligated to share it!
So...what do I think of woman as Dr. Who? Keep an open mind, I say. I might not like her just as I didn't like the last Dr. Who. Couldn't quite my finger on why I didn't like him in that role, I just didn't. Here's the thing though, if you say you don't care for her in this role, you will be accused of sexism!
The Dr. Who news was released today just after the Men's Single Final at Wimbledon where Roger Federer won his historic 8th win! First man ever to do so! Did you see him after the match? So gracious, he spent the first few minutes praising his opponent. They told us during the match that during this past week that Roger Federer had prepared a meal for 40 people, did all the shopping and cooking himself! What a great guy! (Think that they said it was this past Friday...could be wrong about that, I don't get hung up on details too much, I look at the big picture, but when you write a blog, you have to pay attention, folks will call you out on it!)
Let's see...tennis and sexism. There must be something on YouTube that would somehow apply...you know I found it for you!
