Been seeing a lot of commentary about the choice of the new Doctor, from people very disappointed it wasn’t a woman or non-white male. While I would enjoy a Doctor of a different gender or race, I’ll enjoy it a lot more if it happens at the right time, rather than because there is pressure to do it.
First, they likely already have some story ideas planned out, so making a switch like that at this time might not fit them. Second, they may have in fact looked at another option while casting, but for whatever reason- availability, or just didn’t seem right at this time for the show- they weren’t cast. We don’t know. We also don’t know that they don’t have plans to make the NEXT Doctor female or non-white.
Being upset about what didn’t happen only takes away from what did happen. We got a new Doctor. The Doctor is why we watch the show. Welcome the Doctor, embrace the Doctor, and keep the faith that someday, likely sooner than not, there will be a change.
