Doctor Who broke casting barriers last month when it announced that the role of the Time Lord will be going to a woman, actress Jodie Whittaker. How will The Doctor react to being a woman? And how will others react to her?

YouTuber OnlyLeigh—who collaborates with famed YouTube series How It Should Have Ended—answers these questions in her video, “New New New New Doctor.” Here we see the Doctor navigate her new state, starting with her disappointment over the color of her hair. (“I’m still not ginger!”)

Doctor Thirteen gets input from Missy, a Dalek, and her former companion Bill. The response from Missy and the Dalek are as funny you’d expect. But it’s Bill who brings the drop-dead hilarity. This video is a must-watch for fans of the ever-evolving 54-year-old BBC show.
