If you’re a fan of sci-fi, you’ve probably heard of ‘Doctor Who’ (the show has been on FOREVER in the UK) with 12 actors portraying the time-travelling doctor.
Well, now, there’s been a shakeup. The 13th doctor is ACTRESS Jodie Whittaker! This is the first time the role will be played by a woman.
Whittaker is no stranger to the BBC... she’s starred in 'Broadchurch', 'Black Mirror', 'The Smoke', and other miniseries. She will make her first appearance on ‘Doctor Who’ this December in a Christmas special.
(I wonder if this will lead to a female James Bond?!)
