  • Doctor Who's Next Doctor Is Finally Being Unveiled On Monday

BBC has just announced that actress Jodie Whittaker will be the 13th Doctor for Doctor Who. The identity of the 13th Time Lord has been revealed, and it's a big surprise. The two have worked together since 2013 as Chibnall created the series in which she starred, "Broadchurch".

Whittaker said it was "completely overwhelming" to be taking on the role and she wanted to tell fans of the series "not to be scared" by her gender.

She said: "I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. The 13th Doctor is on her way".

Jodie and actor Kris Marshall were the bookies favourites to become the next Doctor, while other possible successors included Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Olivia Colman. "And added to that, to be the first woman in that role", said Jodie Whittaker.

The upcoming series will also feature a new showrunner, according to Deadline.

Why Sansa Stark Deserves the Iron Throne
She had to go through these horrors to bring out the strength she had hidden within. "This season, it's really interesting". Stark deaths are always the most shocking and it would be awful to see Sansa die after everything she has gone through.


Whittaker is the first female Doctor in the show's history and will play the title role in the series' current iteration that began in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the lead.

Whittaker is expected to first appear in the Christmas Special and take over the role in the following season.

The casting news breaks barriers as there were some controversy in having a female Doctor. BBC made the announcement after Roger Federer won his eighth Wimbledon title, effectively keeping the blood pressure up for the entire British continent. In a dramatic reveal, a key appears in her hand as she removes her hood revealing shoulder length blonde hair (still not ginger) and readies herself to enter the Tardis.

Peter Capaldi currently plays the Time Lord but will depart from the sci-fi show at the end of the year.

It will be super exciting to see a woman take Doctor Who into a brand new era.
