Over the weekend it was announced that the thirteenth Doctor on Doctor Who is…a woman!
So I asked Jackie, our favorite Brit insider, what she thought of this choice. And here’s what she said:
“Jodie Whittaker is a fantastic choice for the new Doctor Who! I think she’ll be able to pull off the role of a quirky, but powerful Doctor with ease! She provided an amazing performance in Broadchurch and I can’t wait to see how she fulfills this new role. It’s fantastic to see Doctor Who continue with
their efforts to create a diverse cast. I’m very pleased!”
I’m not really a rabid Dr. Who fan, and I’ve been fine with most of the new Doctors they’ve had since the series reboot with Christopher Eccleston (the tenth doctor), so I too look forward to this new incarnation. Thanks, Jackie!
Any other opinions out there on the choice of Brit actor Jodie Whittaker being cast as the first female Doctor?
