It looks like things will remain equal on the TARDIS, as new female Doctor on Doctor Who will be paid the same as the male Doctors before her, because on Gallifrey there’s no 79 cents to the $1 rubbish.
In case you missed it, long running science fiction drama Doctor Who announced that, for the first time in its 54 year history, a woman would be taking on the lead role of the Doctor. Jodie Whittaker will take over from Peter Calpaldi as the 13th iteration of the Time Lord (or Time Lady, now) following the show’s Christmas special, something that we’re so desperately excited for.
While we wished that Doctor Who was real life, we have to remember that it’s actually a TV show.
And, as we know from previous examples, women on TV and in media (and in general, tbh) are often paid less than their male counterparts. However, it seems that this won’t be the case with Doctor Who.
