FANS expecting the new series to be packed with comments and jokes about the Time Lord turning into a woman will be disappointed.

It seems the Doctor's change of gender after 55 years will barely get a mention.

New boss Chris Chibnall says the opening episode of the new series will be about how The Doc (played by Jodie Whittaker) manages to survive following her regeneration. Last Christmas viewers saw her fall out of the Tardis mid-flight and drop through space towards Earth. No big fuss will be made about the fact the leading star is now female. Chibnall said: "The gender issue is pretty by-passed.

It's not really a kind of a gender-related story or anything like that. "The first story is much more a story of survival for the new Doc. "The last we saw of her she was falling through the air above planet Earth so it's less about gender and more about: 'How am I going to get out of this?'"

However, a source said: "It is odd that one minute Peter Capaldi is The Doc and he turns into Jodie Whittaker and the sex change is barely mentioned."
