In fact, it's the latter who's now spoken up once again on the situation, addressing the controversy head on while making a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Whittaker will be the 13th person to play the Doctor, and her outing in Trust Me left fans feeling increasingly excited at the prospect of seeing her as the Time Lord. He recalled seeing certain messages for his casting, such as, "Who's the weasely looking guy?"
Tennant didn't reveal what he'd said to Whittaker during their conversation, but he did add that he's got high hopes for her Doctor. Who's this? I like the last guy.
'Sure, Jodie is from a different gender - but that will be irrelevant nearly immediately when she takes the part, ' Tennant revealed.
Mellor added that "Whittaker is a rare talent when it comes to conveying conflicted emotion" but that Trust Me's script has not allowed her to show "what she can do".
"That is incredible", laughs Whittaker, as she sees cosplayers wearing the coat with hoodie that she wore in the reveal video. "It's about finding the right performer at the right time and that's Jodie without a doubt". I resign from the internet.' There was a lot of that. "And that happens every time and that's because it's a show that has a lot of enthusiastic followers".
Talking to USA chat show host Stephen Colbert, David explained that the Doctor has never been of any gender, so a female actor is just as relevant to the role as a man.
