Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker cast as the first ever female Doctor
Jodie Whittaker has been announced as the next star to play The Doctor in Doctor Who.
The British actress will be the first woman to play the role in the sci-fi show’s 54-year history when she takes over from Peter Capaldi in the show’s upcoming Christmas special.
Following months of speculation, Whittaker was revealed as the 13th Doctor on Sunday (July 15) in a trailer broadcast on BBC One following the conclusion of the Wimbledon men’s singles final.
The Broadchurch star, 35, said of the news: “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.”
