Jodie Whittaker Named 13th Doctor and First Female Lead on 'Doctor Who'

Jodie Whittaker of Broadchurch has been announced by the BBC as the 13th 'Doctor' in the long-running sci-fi show, Doctor Who.

"I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number one choice", Chibnall said.

He added: "Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role".

American audiences may recognize Whittaker from her work on Broadchurch with the show's 10th Doctor, David Tennant, and an episode of Black Mirror. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope.
