“Doctor Who” showrunner Steven Moffat says there has been no backlash around BBC casting the first-ever female Doctor — even though the network itself said viewers have been complaining.
On Sunday, during the “Doctor Who” panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Moffat told the crowd (via The Hollywood Reporter), “There has been so many press articles about a backlash among the ‘Doctor Who’ fandom about casting a female Doctor. There has been no backlash at all. The story of the moment is that the notionally conservative ‘Doctor Who’ fandom has utterly embraced that change completely.”
He also told journalists writing about it to “shut the hell up.”
