The actor who played the ninth doctor in the 2005 revival tells Doctor Who magazine that the BBC series needs more female writers, characters and villains. “Russell T Davies writes the Doctor as one Doctor; Steven Moffat writes him as another; Rob Shearman writes him, he’s another. Bit of a boys’ club, though. We need to address that," he said. “We need some more Cyberwomen, we need female writers. It needs to be addressed, particularly as the Doctor has such a pronounced, for want of a better phrase, feminine side, and such an enthusiastic engagement with the female.” ALSO: Billie Piper on her Doctor Who exit: "I didn’t like the responsibility of being a role model."
