The Thirteenth Doctor

The Thirteenth Doctor stirred up stuff by being a woman — Oh, my! — and having companions who weren’t all just white, English dudes — Say what?! ‘Is this even Doctor Who anymore?’ some ask.

We just wish The Doctor didn’t use her sonic all the bloody time and that some of the episodes were a little better written…
