Thirteenth time the charm: Doctor Who gets its first female time lord

Thirteenth time the charm: Doctor Who gets its first female time lord”

The actress is the 13th Doctor and will replace Peter Capaldi, who announced he was leaving the BBC sci-fi franchise in January.

The identity of the new Doctor was revealed in a trailer broadcast at the end of the Wimbledon men's singles final.

"I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number-one choice".

She is expected to make her debut during the Christmas special.

In the clip, we see a figure wearing the 12th Doctor's clothing and the figure unhoods themselves to reveal a blonde Whittakerv as she walks toward the TARDIS.

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and every Whovian on this planet", Whittaker said in a statement.

Whittaker said: "I want to tell fans not to be scared by my gender because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that's exciting about change. Her audition for the Doctor simply blew us all away", reports The Guardian.

The BBC and BBC America today announced to the world that Jodie Whittaker will be the new DOCTOR WHO. "The 13th Doctor is on her way", he added.

Whittaker has a message for fans. Since then she's had a varied career in British television and film, including St. Trinian's and one of the most beloved episodes of Black Mirror, "The Entire History of You".

What's funny is that previous rumors have suggested that BBC was planning on rebooting Doctor Who back to its original David Tennant formula with a young, charming Doctor accompanied by a female companion. "She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor". Whittaker, 35, will then be featured when the new season of "Dr. Who" premieres next year.

While reactions may be mixed, Whittaker spoke to BBC Entertainment about what viewers may feel.
