When Tom Baker decided he was tired of wearing a long scarf and eating jelly babies, rumors spread that his replacement might be a woman. Baker fueled those speculations with the following comment:: “Well, you’re making an assumption that it’s going to be a man.” Years later, speculation was fueled when Helen Mirren, after shooting down rumors she would be piloting the Tardis, went on the record with that following bold statement: “I’m not going to be the first female Doctor Who – no, no, no,” she said. “I absolutely wouldn’t contemplate that.” “I do think it’s well over-time to have a female Doctor Who.
