Former Doctor Who star John Barrowman has joined the debate on who should replace Matt Smith as the next Doctor and… he thinks it should be a woman.
“We’ve had great guys playing the role. The character of River Song was so popular in the last part of the series and it was such an impact, why shouldn’t we have a female doctor,” Barrowman tells ITV’s Daybreak.
Barrowman, who played the character of Captain Jack Harkness in the sci-fi series, adds, “Give it a whirl, if it doesn’t work she can always regenerate, she can always regenerate back to a man – I’ve been there, I’ve watched them do it.”
