First female Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker will need a thick skin, fellow trailblazer warns

Last year, May told the Radio Times that she always tried to watch Doctor Who at Christmas “if possible”.

Those fans who admitted they were less than impressed with the news, describing it as “cramming political correctness down our throats” were criticised by, among others, Colin Baker, 74, a former Doctor Who.

The actor, who held the role between 1984 and 1986, said he found it “very sad” that some fans opposed the casting of Whittaker and had vowed not to watch the show again.
