Doctor Who has always been about patrician intervention to break unjust systems; a dream of Empire, embodied in male social freedoms.
A female Doctor is a deep break from this; so was the working class 9th Doctor. I am excited to see what DW will become.
& remember, Who was created by a young woman and a gay man of colour, guided by an old white man who suggested a female Doctor in 1986.
Their creation has always been a critique of its own sense of male power. Well past time to complete the circle and see what happens next.
