“All of this is new to me… New faces… New worlds… New times,” narrates Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor (and the first woman Doctor!), who is set to make her TV debut in Doctor Who’s upcoming 11th season. A short new trailer debuted at Comic-Con today, giving us a sneak peek at Whittaker’s Doctor in action – and she’s got multiple Companions!
Doctor Who has finally made a deal with Alan Cumming, but not for the title role. Instead, reports confirm that Cumming may recur as a new “nice” baddie for series star Jodie Whittaker, appearing in Season 11 this fall.
Jodie Whittaker is more than just an inspiration to Doctor Who fans; she’s inspiring the comics industry as well. The long-running sci-fi serial’s first female Doctor will also regenerate a brand-new comic series this fall, as developed by an all-female creative team.
New Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker has a world of work ahead to follow Peter Capaldi, but that work shouldn’t include equal pay. As Whittaker herself put it, she only took the TARDIS gig after The BBC agreed to match Capaldi’s salary, and deservedly so.
Christmas has come and gone, and with it another round of Doctor Who goodbyes. This time it’s extra special, however, as not only star Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat’s exits from the series, but also the debut of our first female Doctor, Jodie Whittaker! Watch for yourself in an official clip from “Twice Upon a Time.”
No Doctor Who fan is ready to say goodbye to Peter Capaldi, though we’ll thankfully have no less than three Doctors to help him off. See One meet Twelve in a first clip from 2017 Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time,” and feel free to add your own TARDIS design critique.
The Doctor has always been fashion-forward, so consider Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Time Lord officially keeping with tradition. The first female Doctor Who lead has arrived in her suspended, multi-color costume, and we can already feel the cosplay in motion.
In all the excitement of Doctor Who naming Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor, we forgot a Christmas special has to get us there! See the first trailer from Comic-Con 2017, as Peter Capaldi’s Twelve Meets David Bradley’s One (with bonus Bill!) in “Twice Upon a Time.”
You know those rare moments when everyone on the internet seems to be talking about the same thing? Sports, politics, entertainment, whatever… those are the moments that make social media both a blessing and a curse. Take, for instance, a talented (if not slightly unknown) actress named Jodie Whittaker. If you were to go to Google Trends right now and look up her name, you’d see a sudden spike in searches, indicating that everyone everywhere is suddenly obsessed with learning more about her career. Why on earth could that be?
