New Doctor Who announced... and he's a she.

We all saw it coming, especially in these "gender fluid" times: Dr. Who gets regenerated over and over again, and for this, his 13th time, he's brought back as a woman. But count our blessings-- at least she's cute (and straight-- not that that makes any difference!)

James Bond will probably be next.

On Sunday, the BBC announced that Jodie Whittaker will be succeeding Peter Capaldi as the 13th Doctor, which means that when the Doctor's famous regeneration abilities kick in at the end of this year's Christmas special and transform his body, he will switch genders for the first time in the show's 54-year history.

For many Whovians, the historic announcement was reason for celebration.

But in a world where news of a "Ghostbusters" reboot with an all-female cast draws backlash, Whittaker's casting was bound to draw opposition from some corners of the "Doctor Who" fandom, which in return was met with sarcasm from the pro-Jodie crowd.

And an article on the backlash)
