The first time such a swap was even suggested appears to have occurred in 1981, when the outgoing Fourth Doctor Tom Baker was asked by a journalist what sort of man his successor would be. Apparently the actor replied, seemingly at least part in jest, “Well, you’re making an assumption that it’s going to be a man.”
Aw, that’s a shame.
Yes, looking forward to that!
I hope the bit with Bill at the end isn’t a fake out - hopefully she gets a proper “goodbye” with the Doctor.

That’s my Cardinal Richelieu.
I keep reading this thread title as “June Whitfield is the 13th Doctor”.
Which would be awesome.
I was going to suggest Terry Scott as a companion but it seems that he is no longer with us.
