The BBC has made it official: Jodie Whittaker will be the 13th actor to play the lead role in 'Doctor Who' full-time. She'll take over the TARDIS from Peter Capaldi this December, when everyone's favorite Time Lord from Gallifrey finally undergoes his much-delayed regeneration.
Whittaker, the first woman to play the Doctor in the show's 54-year history, has already spent three seasons working with incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall (plus former Doctor David Tennant) on Chibnall's moody murder-mystery show Broadchurch. And that's not the only reason she's perfect for the role.Doctor Who, Entertainment, and Movies Tv Shows
