Jodie Whittaker is 'The Doctor', say thrilled fans of sci-fi show

The show will feature exclusive interviews with Jodie Whittaker and panel interviews with Doctor Who fans and experts.

"It's 2018, women are not a genre, we are just the other half of the population, so to see us doing things shouldn't be such a surprise", suggests Jodie during a break from filming. And that's what we feel like this show represents.

"Doctor Who" fans don't have much longer to wait for the newest incarnation of the Doctor to appear.

But perhaps what's truly wonderful about this new chapter in Doctor Who history is that while the show is now headlined by a woman and features three companions, two of whom are people of color, the show itself is still the same escapist, fun series fans have always known and loved.

"It was a pretty unbelievable moment and not one I thought would happen as a girl born in the 80's".

Chibnall, who created Broadchurch, wrote the first episode entitled The Woman Who Fell to Earth, which introduced the Time Lord's new companions played by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.

Not revealing the Tardis was a clever move by Chibnall to keep viewers coming back, but that will make the moment the Tardis does show up - if it does show up - that much grander.

So how were Whittaker's nerves when she first arrived on set?

When Yasmin refers to her as "madam", Whittaker's Doctor ask: "Why are you calling me madam?" "So there are the natural nerves you have of doing any job you're passionate about".

Another said: "I love her".

Interpol boss RESIGNS two weeks after DISAPPEARING in China - corruption probe launched

Close Call Foreshadows Growing Tensions in South China Sea
He maintains China is meddling in next month's U.S. midterm elections by targeting key states that are likely to sway the outcome. They also acknowledge that the intelligence community would have to weigh in with any concerns about reactions from China.

Telltale Games Has Laid Off The Rest of its Staff
Despite their closure, it's clear that we haven't heard the last of Telltale. As this story continues to unfold be sure to keep an eye on TechRaptor.

Whittaker, who is married to American actor Christian Contreras, is chatting away while still in costume - a blue striped top over long white sleeves, turquoise pants and brown braces.

I love being part of an ensemble. One image she found showed a "woman, walking with purpose" wearing boots, short pants, braces and a T-shirt, and with unkempt hair. As "The Woman Who Fell To Earth", the emotional and (literally) down-to-earth season opener on which Whittaker made her debut, amply demonstrated, the Doctor can be anything, as long as it's British.

Later, the Doctor comes up with an "Alien vs Predator"-style explanation of events, only to accept that unusually she too has got things wrong - this isn't one alien against another, instead it's a hunt for human trophies".

How do you think audiences will react to the Thirteenth Doctor?

It's clear from Whittaker's fast-paced responses, and visible nervousness as she bites her nails while her co-stars talk, that she's overwhelmingly excited by the turn her career has taken. What we do know is the first episode follows a mysterious woman, unable to remember her own name, falling from the night sky and landing in a South Yorkshire city where odd events are taking place.

What themes do you think are important in this series? Brought together by chance and united by tragedy, the three promise to bring a dynamic to the series we haven't seen since old-school Who: A team of colleagues with different skill sets.

"Friendship and loyalty and survival", she notes. A classic Doctor Who set-up, you might think, only for the Doctor to counsel that, no, this death was more likely from shock - while linked to the alien incursion, it wasn't intended or executed by a traditional monster. It's all the familiar set-up that usually takes place each time a Doctor regenerates, but there is at least one thing missing from the premiere: the TARDIS. It's a very inclusive world.

Ratings for Doctor Who have fallen in recent years and the BBC will be hoping a new Doctor - and a new timeslot - will reverse the trend.

If you're out of the country or live overseas but still want to watch the Doctor live, fret not, it's still possible - and without too much difficulty.
