Capaldi, famous for his role as foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in the political satire "The Thick of It", has played the role since 2013.

After teasing the reveal on Friday, the BBC has just announced who will be taking over for Peter Capaldi as the new star of Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker of Broadchurch and Attack The Block.

Capaldi had announced that he will be leaving Doctor Who back in January this year, and his character's regeneration into Whittaker is said to take place in the Christmas special this December.

Jodie Whittaker will be the thirteenth "Doctor Who".

We're excited to see what she does with the role.

Amid a negative response to the tweet, the actor then added: 'Change my dears and not a moment too soon - she IS the Doctor whether you like it or not'.

"Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that's exciting about change", she said. Her audition for the Doctor simply blew us all away. So she's got some pretty good pals to turn to for advice. It was relaunched in 2005 and spawned a spin-off last year. She'll make her first appearance as the Time Lord when the show transitions to a new season this Christmas.

Whittaker's casting marks an important moment in "Doctor Who" history.

Whittaker's other credits include "Black Mirror", Sky 1's "The Smoke", and 2008's "Venus".

"I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number one choice", Chibnall said.

On Sunday, the official "Doctor Who" Twitter account shared a video that revealed actress Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor, a time-traveling adventurer in one of the most popular sci-fi series currently on television.
