Fans have been patiently awaiting the announcement of the thirteenth time lord and now we finally have it! Jodie Whittaker will take up the ‘doctor’ moniker, replacing Peter Capaldi for the new season of Doctor Who.
The announcement was made after the men’s Wimbledon final and it’s exciting that after so many years, the television series finally has a woman taking up the mantle. Check out the promo video released from BBC One below:
Back in February, current doctor Capaldi voiced his interest in the first female time lord to The Mirror. So, Capaldi got his wish for the first female doctor!
What do you think about the casting of Whittaker as the new Doctor? Be sure to sound off in the comment section below.
As Capaldi’s last episode is airing on December 25, we won’t see the Whittaker in action as the Doctor until some time in 2018. We’ll keep you posted when the official air date drops.
