Announced following the Men’s Finals at Wimbledon, we were taken a shot of a hooded figure walking through a wooded field. She walks slowly and then stops, to where she unfolded her clenched hand to reveal a TARDIS key. The TARDIS appears and she lowered the hood of her coat to reveal that for the first time in Doctor Who history, a woman is taking over the role.
Emily Cook, editorial assistant from Doctor Who magazine, said: “I am very excited about this. As soon as saw Jodie Whittaker appear on the video in the BBC clip announcing her it just felt right – she just felt like the Doctor. Having a female Doctor is really exciting and significant. I cannot wait to see what she does with the role and where she takes the show.”
She added: “She will bring a freshness. She is younger than Peter Capaldi and being a woman she will have a different approach to the role. It’s completely new territory for the show and that is very exciting. Whittaker has worked with David Tennant on Broadchurch and St Trinian’s so there is a strong Doctor Who connection there.”
So, what do you think about having Jodie as the new Doctor? Is this good, bad, or shall we wait to see how it plays out???
