Months of speculation is finally over! Jodie Whittaker will officially become the first woman to play the Time Lord in legendary TV show, Doctor Who.
35-year-old Jodie is best known for her role as Beth Latimer in Broadchurch, and takes over the iconic role from Peter Capaldi.
Jodie says of her new role: "It feels completely overwhelming, as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can't be. It feels incredible."
She added: "I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender. Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that’s exciting about change. The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one."
It's about time, if you ask us...
