Keep weeping, snowflakes — the BBC don't give a fuck!

On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy.

For those not in the know, the BBC favorite features a space and time traveling alien who regenerates every few years — as a different actor.

Unlike James Bond, the show has actually created an explanation for recasting its actors — like Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith — who have all been replaced after stepping down.

With the potential to replace the titular character with ANY actor, fans have begged for more diverse casting and over time have wanted either a black actor or female to play the zany Doctor — and now we know it almost happened!

Current showrunner Steven Moffat, who will himself be "regenerating" after next season, spoke with Doctor Who's official magazine saying that the role of the main Time Lord — which now belongs to Peter Capaldi — was once offered to a black actor.
