Next Doctor Who won't be a woman, BBC 'assures' concerned fan

Ever since it was announced that Capaldi is leaving the show after this series, many Doctor Who fans have called for a female Doctor - including Peter himself.

Scottish actress Gillan, 29, played companion Amy Pond for two years alongside Matt Smith's Doctor.

And despite many sources suggesting that the now iconic role could be given to a woman - Pheobe Waller-Bridge, Olivia Coleman and Natalie Dormer were all in the running - it now looks like the BBC have now unfortunately confirmed that there are "currently no plans for a female Timelord". "She gets to go to the future, she gets to see another planet, and she gets to meet these really cute little robots - who might not be all they seem". It's okay, maybe next time.

The BBC's admission came as they responded to an official complaint filed by a fan, who admitted he was anxious that potentially switching the gender of the part would lead to confusion for his kids and children throughout the world.

"I trust the BBC and their choices and they haven't failed us yet with the Doctor".

"We appreciate that you're a big Doctor Who fan and you have concerns that the programme would change should there be a female doctor", wrote Complaints officer Joanne Coyne.

"But it would be cool to see a woman in the role one day because a woman could absolutely play that role".

Capaldi will step down from the role as the Time Lord after the 2017 Christmas special, alongside lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.

Though it's looking pretty likely that he'll be taking over, the BBC are yet to confirm the news and have only said in a statement that that "no casting decisions have yet been made on Series 11".

Before you panic, yes, some male names have also been rumoured to have entered the ring, including Kris Marshall, David Harewood and Tom Rosenthal.
