Straight white men are now ‘pariahs,’ according to Christopher Eccleston, who plays Doctor Who.

“White, middle-aged, straight actors” like Christopher Eccleston, who played the ninth Doctor in Doctor Who, have become “the pariahs of the industry,” according to him.

He also expressed his dissatisfaction with the “shrinking” of “opportunities” for people like him.

Christopher, 58, claims that men his age are compared to Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood producer, and that he is concerned about his lack of work.

“Quite correctly, I’m a dinosaur now,” the father of two said.

“But I still have to pay my mortgage, and I still have to support my kids,” he told The Radio Times.

Christopher previously expressed his feelings of being a “failure” and how he believes he should have taken advantage of more opportunities in a previous interview.

Meanwhile, Jodie Whittaker, the current Doctor Who, will be replaced by David Tennant later this year.

The actor will return to the role for one story, in which he will be reunited with an old friend, Catherine Tate, who will play Donna Noble.

However, his time will come to an end after only one episode, and he will regenerate into the new Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa.

He also said that work ops are drying up for him

“This is the first time in the show’s history that this has happened,” a source said. What better way to commemorate its 60th anniversary than with a party?”

Later this year, Jodie will leave her role as the BBC’s first female Time Lord.

Going up against The Daleks, Cybermen, and The Master, the Thirteenth Doctor will finally meet her match.

David Tennant will reprise his role as the Doctor in a surprising twist.

When she regenerates, however, she will revert to Tennant, who was voted the best Doctor of all time by fans.

From 2005 to 2010, the Scotsman played The Tenth Doctor.

But, in a dramatic twist, he will also take on the role of The Fourteenth Doctor, making Ncuti the Fifteenth Doctor to do so.
