Talking Doctor Who Fandom on Hypable

With all the fanfare surrounding the announcement of Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor last weekend, there was one thing that, among the celebration, kind of hit a sour note for us here at MTVP. That would be people within the Doctor Who fandom essentially cheering that because Capaldi is 55, the "fangirls" will stop watching and the "real Whovians" won't have to listen to them anymore. As women (albeit grown women with grown-up jobs and lives), we found this marginalization of a segment of the fandom disconcerting, and we decided to write about it for Hypable. Check it out at the link below!
