After playing a little bit of every class, I have found that the Witchdoctor seems really out of place in this game, as if he doesn't belong at all
Anyone else feel this way?
Are you referring to how the witch doctor looks (physical appearance + armor options) or how the hero interacts with other characters in the game and progresses with the story arc? Or is it all about gameplay, and what spells the witch doctor has in its arsenal?
This is just anecdotal, but I've experimented with all five classes on various genders, too, and the witch doctor (female) is my absolute favorite in terms of how she engages with the main the characters and responds to conflict, so I'm curious about what just doesn't "click" for you.

Witch Doctor was my second class to really level, and I love their playstyle. It is very different (out of place, I guess?), but I enjoy it.
What's really feels genuinely off is just their persona. He lacks the character the other classes have. Barbarian is this grizzled veteran who has seen the works of hell before. Wizard has the interesting character of this really pompous arrogant child who his/her teachers cannot stand (but who is truly talented). etc.
Witch Doctor, now, is just this really nice guy (judging by how he talks to the blacksmith and other characters) who got exiled for not really explained reasons.
I think I recall hearing that designers were worried about him having a negative reputation by giving him a personality like the necro's. I think it went too far and now he doesn't really have the same sort of character as the other classes.
Edit: I like how eccentric his casting animations/sounds are, but I would have liked his character to be a little more eccentric as well.
