Billie Piper has joined the campaign for a female Doctor by saying that casting a woman in the iconic role would be a “timely” move by the BBC.

Following the announcement that Peter Capaldi will be handing over the keys to the TARDIS this Christmas, the Rose Tyler actress was asked whether or not she would ever consider taking on the momentous mantle of the Time Lord. “I don’t know,” she told BBC News. “It’s a lot of work. But I think it would be great to have a female Doctor, especially given the spirit of the world at the moment.”

She added: “I’ve always said that I support the show’s original format, but then I honestly don’t know where they can take it from here. It would be a snub at this point, I think.”

Do you agree with Billie? Should the next Doctor be a woman? Join the discussion below…

    I’m not sure if I’m ready for a female doctor, but I’m willing to give it a try.
    The only person I can think of that would be great in the part, is Helen Mirren.

    I would love to see Helen M as the Doctor but then again – Sheridan Smith!!
