Jodie Whittaker has been announced as Dr. Who’s 13th Time Lord – the first woman to ever play the role.
She was revealed in a Doctor Who trailer that was broadcast on BBC One at the end of the Wimbledon men’s singles finals.
The Broadchurch star succeeds Peter Capaldi who took the role in 2013, and leaves in this year’s Christmas special.
Whittaker will make her debut on the sci-fi show this Christmas.
This is huge news for all you Whovians out there. And all you fans of Broadchurch–which if you’re not watching that, you should be–but also, way to bury the lede and not mention Attack the Block, BBC. Jodie Whittaker is amazing–bodes rather well for the newest season!
At any rate, the 2017 Christmas special will usher in the latest regeneration of the Doctor, so be sure and tune in this holiday season.
So, your favorite Doctor is Who? Yes. That’s what I’m asking you.
