Is it because the Doctor is now finally a woman?!

Reacting to the news, Capaldi said: "Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker's work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm". She follows Capaldi, Matt Smith, David Tennant, and Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. It went on an extending hiatus in 1989 and returned back to the small screen in 2005.

In a separate statement, Chibnall explained why he chose Whittaker. However, the prospect of a woman at the helm of the TARDIS became a likelier prospect after the show established that the gender of Time Lords, the alien race the Doctor belongs to, isn't fixed.

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet", Whittaker said, according to Metro.

The Doctor, who travels through time in what from the outside appears to be a blue police telephone box, has the ability to regenerate, allowing a number of actors to play the role since the series was first broadcast in 1963. The one thing everyone is curious about is whether she can pull off the comedic flair that is essential to the Doctor's character. She also appeared in short-lived 2014 ABC miniseries The Assets and Sky's The Smoke, and has been in numerous movies, from Venus to Attack The Block.

Jodie Whittaker will be the new Doctor. His final episode will be the 2017 Christmas special.
