A ques­tion of Who is a Jew

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

THE first pro­ducer of Dr Who was Jewish, so was an early Dalek – well, Dalek voice — but could the next in­car­na­tion of the wan­der­ing Time Lord be played by a Jewish ac­tress?

On­line bet­ting com­pany Bet­fair has Lara Pul­ver third favourite to suc­ceed Peter Ca­paldi in the role and put the gal in Gal­lifrey as the first fe­male re­gen­er­a­tion of the Doc­tor.

Ms Pul­ver, 36 ( be­low) has ap­peared in the last TV se­ries of Robin Hood and more re­cently in Sher­lock as Irene Adler, the wily mis­tress of dis­guise, whom the great de­tec­tive knows as “The Woman”. Her pre­vi­ous stage roles in­clude Sarah Gold­man in the Amer­i­can com­edy Beau Jest, where she played a nice Jewish girl who pre­tends her boyfriend is Jewish.
