“Flapper “
The notorious character type who bobbed her hair, smoke cigarettes, drank gin, sported short skirts, and passed her evenings in steamy jazz clubs, where she danced in a shockingly immodest fashion with a revolving cast of male suitors.”
“The New Woman of the 1920s boldly asserted her right to dance, drink, smoke, and date— to work her own property, to live free of the strictures that governed her mother’s generation. (…) She flouted Victorian-era conventions and scandalized her parents. In many ways, she controlled her own destiny”

This isn’t exactly surprising, but the casting process is reportedly already underway for the Twelfth Doctor — based on the linked report, I’m not sure any actors have actually auditioned yet, but the preliminary wheels appear to be in motion. We may actually know the identity of the Twelfth Doctor within the next month, as it’s quite reasonably thought that the announcement needs to be made before the Christmas special begins filming, as otherwise the secret would inevitably be revealed in set photos. The report also mentions that the next season will be 12 — rather than 13 — episodes long, and that the BBC hasn’t ruled out casting a woman as the Doctor.
