How Jodie Whittaker ‘missed’ fan reactions to ‘Doctor Who’ role
    2017-August-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Jodie Whittaker says she didn’t see people’s reactions to her becoming the first female “Doctor Who,” because she’s not on social media.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music in her first broadcast interview since her casting was revealed, she said: “This will be a blessing and a curse.

“I’ve missed a lot of the fun stuff and probably the bad stuff.”

The “Broadchurch” star also praised fans of the sci-fi series as “the most amazing, creative people.”

And she said she had spoken to the actors who have previously played the Doctor — although she didn’t ask for advice.

“The overwhelming sense was this is such an exciting journey,” she said.

“It’s to be enjoyed. There’s no advice you can do — no person plays this part the same. What a freeing thing it is.”

The reaction to Whittaker’s casting was mostly positive — but a sizeable minority protested that the Doctor shouldn’t be played by a woman.

“The people that are in this role, that we’re excited by and we’re passionate* about, that we look up to, don’t always have to tick the same box, and that’s what’s really incredible about it.”

The actress said she managed to avoid most of the commentary*.

“I’ve missed a lot of the fun stuff and probably the bad stuff because I’m not on any type of social media and never have been,” she told Shaun Keaveny.

“So if I get something it’s a mate screen grabbing something and sending it to me.

“They obviously edit... actually, sometimes they don’t!” she added, joking that any negative posts sent on to her by friends left her confidence on the floor.

She said she had seen “an amazing video” of a young girl’s reaction, as she watched the trailer revealing the Doctor’s new identity.

Whittaker also admitted the role “was not in the realm* of possibility” when she was growing up and that getting the part was “incredibly emotional.”

The 35-year-old said that when she found out her audition* had been successful: “I didn’t faint* — I played it really cool and cried.”
