Whittaker made her feature debut in 2006's Venus, alongside the legendary Peter O'Toole.

The Doctor, who travels through time in what from the outside appears to be a blue police telephone box, has the ability to regenerate, allowing a number of actors to play the role since the series was first broadcast in 1963. The episode will also mark Steven Moffat's last as showrunner - to be replaced by Chibnall.

If you're unfamiliar with that name, she recently played Beth Latimer in the hit series Broadchurch. "I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman, and we're thrilled to have secured our No. 1 choice", he said. She'll be the first female Doctor in the show's almost 54-year history.

In a separate statement, Chibnall explained why he chose Whittaker.

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet, she told the Beeb. She's going to be a fantastic Doctor".

"I can't wait." Capaldi, whose Doctor will step down in the upcoming Christmas special, said that Whittaker is a "wonderful actress of great individuality and charm", and that she has "the huge heart" needed to play the Doctor.

"I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender".

TV series Doctor Who finally announced their first female doctor after 26 seasons on air. She has broken the tradition after all of these years.

Whittaker replaces actor Peter Capaldi, the 12th actor to play the lead, in the iconic role.

The trailer for the new season shows Whittaker pulling back a hoodie and stepping over ruins toward the Tardis, a spaceship disguised as an old-fashioned British police telephone booth. Peter's swan song will be in the 2017 Christmas special.
