Jodie Whittaker has been named as the next star to play Doctor Who. This, therefore, makes her the first woman to take on the role, playing the 13th Doctor Who in the BBC1 drama.
Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who’s Head writer, and executive producer said: “After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we’re excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor.”
Meanwhile, Whittaker said: “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”
