But What Happens if the TARDIS Goes Back to NYC 1946?
During one of her signature #AskHayley Twitter question and answer sessions (she does these a lot, which is one of the reasons why she’s so beloved by her fans), a fan asked Atwell if she wanted to be on Doctor Who. Atwell simply responded, “I’d like to BE Doctor Who.”
The Internet responded with enthusiasm. Immediately.
The tweet that started it all”

Atwell, whose Dubsmash videos have been delighting superhero fans for months, is currently committed to Agent Carter and Doctor Who currently has Peter Capaldi in the title role, but fans are already getting on the Hayley Atwell for Doctor Who bandwagon.
One day the Doctor will regenerate as a woman.
“There easily could be a female Doctor. I think the next time might be a female Doctor. I don’t see why not. I think it’s good to do that,” Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat has said.
Atwell, in typical fashion, has responded to the enthusiasm. This was her recent tweet:
“Wow, one playful comment about playing the Doctor and the Internet goes nuts… ??????”
