Just because comedian Ken Jeong plays a doctor on TV doesn’t mean he’s qualified to save a life. Good thing he’s also a doctor in real life though, because during a comedy set on Saturday, he did just that.
The BBC has announced that the next iteration of the Time Lord known as The Doctor on the tv series Doctor Who will be played by Jodie Whittaker, a known woman. While many fans of the long running series applauded the casting choice, others expressed concern that the actor’s vagina and breasts would deter from their enjoyment of the show and retroactively ruin their childhoods. The role of The Doctor, a fictional character, has historically been played by actors who are not actually Time Lords, and Jodie Whittaker is no exception.
