Plus! See what “Who” producer Mark Gatiss and “An Adventure in Space and Time” actor David Bradley’s thoughts on the possibility of a female Doctor after the jump!
Could the next Doctor be a woman? During Her Universe’s Ashley Eckstein interview with Matt Smith at San Diego Comic-Con, the outgoing Doctor shared his advice for the next person to take over the TARDIS. But first, he casually dropped one VERY intriguing tidbit:

Sure Smith might not be in the know for who Steven Moffat and company are planning to cast, but the rumor of the next Doctor being of the female persuasion have been persistent. Could the folks behind the show be preparing to announce the first ever female Doctor? Hopefully, we’ll find out this weekend at Comic-Con.
