"I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number one choice".
Doctor Who is centered around the story of the Doctor who can travel through time and space in a time machine called the TARDIS. She will join another "Broadchurch" alumnus, its creator, Chris Chibnall, who will become the showrunner of "Doctor Who" following Steven Moffatt's departure. She will make her Doctor Who debut on the Christmas special later this year before taking over full-time when the new season premieres in 2018.
Her credits include "Broadchurch", "Black Sea", "Attack the Block", "Black Mirror", "One Day", "St. Trinian's" and "Cranford". The identity of the 13th Time Lord has been revealed, and it's a big surprise.
Love Actually's Kris Marshall, Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer were also considered for the role, according to HuffPost. "I've been a fan for years and always hoped to work with her. She is an actor of great emotional range and inhabits every role with complete passion and conviction".
Doctor Who first aired in 1963 and celebrated its 50 anniversary four years ago. Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that's exciting about change.
While Lancashire has been the birthplace of three doctors (Tom Baker, Paul McGann and Christopher Eccleston), no one from God's own county has taken on the iconic title. He said of the casting, "After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we're excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor".
