[edit]

TIME Lord The Doctor is to become a Time Lady for the first time in the show's 54-year history.

For diehard fans this, er, revelation has been the subject of much debate. Detractors suggest that whoever made this decision is from another planet, while others virtue-signal their PC credentials by heralding it as a "victory for feminism". Yawn.

Predictably, memes of a crashed Tardis are doing the rounds, so too are jokes about the Daleks screeching "Exfoliate! Exfoliate!" But I digress.

As I haven't been a regular viewer since the Jon Pertwee days, I am perhaps unqualified to comment, though one feels there are plenty of good female roles available these days without the need to erode those that are traditionally male.

The same day that Jodie Whittaker was unveiled as the Doctor. Emily Blunt was photographed for the first time as the new Mary Poppins, inset.

In the interests of equality, perhaps it should have been Marty?
