Joss Whedon Would Write For A Female Doctor

Acclaimed director Joss Whedon – best known for the recent Marvel Avengers films – was recently asked by a fan during a Q&A session at Nerd HQ 2016 whether he would consider writing an episode of Doctor Who. His answer was:

“I’m not sure… I’d have to do a lot of research. Like watch 40 years of television. I’ve seen some of it… It would be very daunting to follow in the footsteps of Moffat and the guys.”

However, he then went on to tease:

“Check back with me when The Doctor is a she… or Idris Elba.”
