Finishing the 11th Series of Doctor Who.
I so much wanted to like Jodie Whittaker, but she is just so unimpressive. If I imagine her up against Michelle Gomez as Missy, you would expect her to get creamed. The companions are nice, though – not individually, but as a group.
It is now midnight, and I should sleep, but now my mind cannot let go of who would be the better first female doctor. Apart Apart from the obvious choice Judi Dench, of course. Hmmm.
Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Emma Thompson.
Helen Mirren would be brilliant.
Minnie Driver would be interesting.
Coming after Capaldi, imagine Charlotte Rampling! She would make him seem almost cheerful.
I know: I would love Kristin Scott Thomas. She is my suggestion. Cool, hot and credibly intelligent.
