Oatley admitted that she was confused for the new Doctor by her own, young daughter.

The 34-year-old actress, known for shows like Broadchurch, will be the five-decades long sci-fi series' Thirteenth Time Lord. In this spirit of numerical upheaval, we have decided to look back on twelve of the best things about this incarnation of the Doctor.

Whittaker said on getting the role: "It's more than an honour to play the Doctor". The author explicitly admits to having fallen out of love with Doctor Who because of 'the often over-wrought plotlines and halting character development of Steven Moffat', and yet is now 'excited', because 'for the first time in 50 years, the Doctor wouldn't be a white guy'. Ladies and gents, say hello to your new Time Lord: Jodie Whittaker, the first woman in Doctor Who's 54-year history to land the title role.

- The announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor for "Doctor Who" has left some fans outraged.

The adventures of the doctor - a time travelling, humanoid alien who traverses the universe - have maintained a loyal following since they were first aired in 1963.

"What happens when this woman finishes, what's it going to be next, a monkey?"

The broadcaster said: "It's just a case of remembering why you're doing the job".

While there seems to have been a push for female talent in 2017, the presence of strong women in sci-fi is actually nothing new.

PM 'pleased' with BBC's decision to cast woman in iconic TV role.

Former Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan chanted her congratulations by writing "Jodie Jodie Jodie Jodie Jodie!" on her Twitter page, alongside party popper emojis, and Downton Abbey star Tom Cullen concurred, "Suddenly #DrWho is appealing. YES!" A Lord is a male and a lady can't become a Lord.

She replaces actor Peter Capaldi, who has been in the role since 2013.

"The thing is, people my age and who have watched it and it's been a bloke, a bloke, a bloke, this was coming because when Matt Smith was mentioned after [David] Tennant, there was 'oh I wonder if they will have a woman' and Matt Smith come". She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. His costumes From the sharp dark suit of Series 8 to the patched trousers and hoodies of Series 9, right through to the red velvet jacket and beyond, the Twelfth Doctor is a man of ever-changing outfits - all of them stylish and cool. It's always great though, always giving a sense of character and style.

To that pile of bodies we can still add Richard E. Grant, who played The Doctor in the webisode Scream of the Shalka. He is, after all, a very stylish Doctor, reminiscent of Jon Pertwee's Third Doctor. And, with a little affection, the multiple regenerations of The Doctor featured in the BBC charity broadcast Curse of the Fatal Death, including Rowan Atkinson, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and, finally, Joanna Lumley.
