…make a racket

doctor_who_experience_28810552067329Happy Wimbledon Finals Weekend, tennis fans! And for the Whovians out there, happy weekend that we find out who the next Doctor is once the tennis is over!

For the non-Whovians, you’ve had more than 50 years to catch on, but I’ll catch you up. Much like James Bond, the Doctor has had many faces throughout the years, unlike James Bond, he actually changes faces within the plot of the show. (If you need more explanation than that, here’s our overview from the last changing of the Doctor.)

Sunday, the 13th Doctor will be announced (although it’s really the 15th if you’re a super nerd) following the men’s final at Wimbledon. You might say they’ll take it from tennis to the TARDIS (I can do this all day).

Until now, the role of the Doctor has maintained a streak of male actors (and they’ve done a fantastic job). But the buzz for a lady Doctor has only grown in the last few years and seeing as today was the women’s finals at Wimbledon, I thought I’d take a moment to explore the female frontrunners (even if the actual front runner of the moment is male…a girl can dream).

First up, in the order of odds, because yes, there are people who bet on these things, is Jodie Whittaker, of “Broadchurch.” If you don’t watch “Broadchurch,” it’s on Netflix, go fix that. Fun fact, one of her “Broadchurch” co-stars, David Tennant, was the 10th Doctor. Here’s a look at how lovely she is…

Next, we have Phoebe Waller-Bridge who’s been mentioned quite a bit lately. American audiences might not recognize her yet, but she’ll be showing up in the Han Solo prequel…and perhaps as the next first lady Doctor…

Now we arrive at Tilda Swinton, who is quite a long shot, but would be a fascinating Doctor I’m sure…

Will any of these wonderful women be receiving the keys to the TARDIS this Sunday? We’ll have to wait and see…

…bi-daily smile…
