Doctor Who star Matt Smith says a female Time Lord isn’t likely “any time soon”
We reported recently that Doctor Who executive Steven Moffat had claimed that the next time the Time Lord regenerates, it could be into a female form, however, Matt Smith – who of course currently plays the Doctor – reckons that’s “unlikely” to happen.
While speaking to website, The Mary Sue – which describes itself as being “A guide to girl geek culture” – Matt said, “I think there are many actresses that could play it because there are so many wonderful actresses.”
And when asked who – if it were to happen – he would like to see in the role, Matt said, “Oh gosh, so many, so many could play her. It depends on what age you would want.
“It could be… Charlize Theron is pretty kick-ass, isn’t she?
“They just have to find a brilliant actress. I never see that happening any time soon to be honest…
“I mean, it would change the role because she would be a woman, so when you put her in a room full of men, it’s a different scenario than if you put a man in a room full of men, because she’s a different sex.
“Would it change the fundamentals of the character? No…
“But it’s an interesting idea, if the Doctor’s a woman, does she have a Doctor baby?
“Is there a mini-Doctor? I don’t know, who knows?”
And finally, of the Doctor as he is now, Matt said, “I think he’s always a loose cannon…
“I mean, the interesting thing is, we sort of pick up where we left him and he was on his own. And as Amy [Karen Gillan] says to him, he’s got to be careful of travelling on his own.
“I think it makes him perhaps less compassionate somehow, I don’t know.”
Doctor Who continues on Saturday on BBC1 with the episode entitled, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.
Here’s the show’s trailer…
So, how would you feel about having a female Doctor?
