Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

Doctor Who is one of the most unique shows on TV.

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.

However, Steven admitted

Doctor Who's Original Creator Wanted A Female Doctor YEARS AGO!!

Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaGIFs

Doctor Who almost had a female doctor!

WHAT.

Prepare yourselves because a Doctor Who truth bomb was just dropped!!

It's been discovered that back in 1986 the show's original creator, Sydney Newman, once suggested there should be a female doctor!

He wrote in a letter:

"At a later stage, Dr Who would be metamorphosed into a woman. This requires some considerable thought – mainly because I want to avoid a flashy Hollywood 'Wonder Woman' because this kind of hero(ine) has no flaws – and a character with no flaws is a bore."

Ahh! So what happened?

When the show originally ran, there were 26 seasons, then an additional eight from the show's revival, and still, all the doctors have been men!

Of course, there have been strong leading women, but who wouldn't want to see their favorite companions take the spotlight??

It seems like unless we hop into the TARDiS and go back in time, we won't be seeing a female doctor soon.

DW's current showrunner, Steven Moffat, previously said:

"It will not happen that somebody sits down and says we must turn the Doctor into a woman … A person will pop into the showrunner's head and they'll think. ‘Oh my God, what if it was that person?' And when that person is a woman, that's the day it will happen."

There's still a chance! But until then, Whovians will have just to wait!

What do U think?? And who would U cast as the first female doctor?!

Inneresting.

It seems that one of the most talked about romances on TV isn't as canon as fans had hoped.

For the three seasons its been on, Sherlock has been building up a bromance between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's Sherlock and Watson to the point that many fans see them as an OTP — One True Pair.

However, Steven Moffat, the man behind the BBC series, clarified the sexual chemistry between the show's leads in a recent interview, saying:
