Introducing the first ever female Dr. Who
Over the course of Doctor Who's 54-year history, twelve men have played the titular Time Lord. Now, after weeks of speculation, the show announced that actress Jodie Whittaker will play the first female Doctor.
Whittaker expressed her enthusiasm for the role in an interview with the BBC.
"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with [showrunner] Chirs Chibnall 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."
