Among science fiction fans Dr. Who is one of the most respected television series. On the air since 1963, it has generations of fans.
Up until recently, the title role has been played by a male actor. That is about to change.
I am not a huge fan of Dr. Who, but I know enough of the basics to get by. The fact Jodie Whittaker is playing the new doctor is nothing short of amazing. It is one step further towards real equality, both on the screen and in real life.
I hope that she will be the first many women who will one day inhabit the role.
