Want to be the next Doctor? Get in line. Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell has already added her name to the waiting list. Emphasis on the word “waiting” because fans of Doctor Who have been doing just that (since 1963 actually) when it comes to the show putting a woman at the helm of the TARDIS.

Sure, River Song is a superior pilot of the big blue police box and yes, we’ve met female Time Lords in the past. S’up Missy?

MISSY

But Doctors One through Twelve have yet to regenerate into a body with ovaries, etc. However, when one finally does (one finally will, right?) Atwell would like it to be her.
