The BBC has announced that Jodie Whittaker will play the Thirteenth Doctor when Doctor Who returns for its eleventh series. New showrunner Chris Chibnall had promised to shake the show up with “radical changes” and this casting seems to be doing the job at the moment. Most fans seem over the moon at the news that the next Doctor has been cast, while some are still a little unsure about it being a woman.
As for my own opinion: Jodie is a fine actor and, I’m sure, will make a wonderful Doctor. This is the biggest real change the show has undergone since its return in 2015 and I’m incredibly excited to see where we’ll be taken. Here we go!
More from me on this topic SOON!
