New Doctor Who Is A Woman, For The First Time Ever

The next Doctor’s identity has finally been revealed; for the first time ever, The Doctor will be female. Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker will take on the role of the 13th Doctor in the forthcoming season debuting this Christmas.

Whittaker will be the next Time Lord after 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi, who announced his departure from the show in January. The BBC has kept her identity under lock and key until today’s announcement via Twitter.

“I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet,” Whittaker told BBC. “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.”

Broadchurch writer Chris Chibinall will join Whittaker as this season’s showrunner, replacing long-time writer Steven Moffat. Right now, we don’t have many details on what Whittaker’s journey will look like, but we do have a sneak peek at this year’s Christmas special.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
