Some comments centred around how cool it was to simply watch a woman fixing things on television.

But most just enjoyed the performance in general.

Plenty talked about Jodie Whittaker, and by extension the Doctor's brand-new Yorkshire accent. Yes! More weird accents on TV please.

Much of the "controversy" around casting the first female Doctor Who dissipated as fans just enjoyed the show, which is exactly as it should be.
