The 10 Biggest Gender Swaps in TV and Film
1. Thirteenth Doctor in Doctor Who
While this has yet to come to fruition, it has been confirmed that the Thirteenth Doctor will, in fact, be played by a woman. If you have no idea who Doctor Who is, (s)he is a Time Lord from another planet who travels through time and space in his/her ship, the TARDIS. Every so often the Doctor regenerates in a new body, which was a clever way to introduce a new actor to the role.
Up until now, Doctor Who has been played by distinctly male actors. All of that changed when someone decided to question why, if he could regenerate into whoever, he kept coming back in sort of the same bodies. This lead to the controversial decision to cast Jodie Whittaker as the next Doctor. We’re excited to see how the plotlines differ with this change.
