"Attack the Block" star Whittaker will be seen on BBC One in the United Kingdom and on BBC America in the US, as well as globally, with the long-running sci-fi series still one of BBC Worldwide's biggest-selling shows internationally.

When asked how it feels to be the first female Doctor, Whittaker said: "It feels completely overwhelming, as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can and can't be".

Way back in 1999, when Doctor Who was in its wilderness years, the show was revived for a charity special.

Capaldi paid tribute to Whittaker. Whittaker and Chibnall previously worked together on "Broadchurch". "She's going to be a fantastic Doctor".

Dr Who, a time-travelling, humanoid alien who traverses the universe, has won a loyal following since the show first aired in 1963, reported Agence France-Presse. He was succeeded by David Tennant in 2010. Written by a bloke called Steven Moffat (whatever happened to him?), the episode initially starred Rowan Atkinson as the titular character, Julia Sawalha as his companion Emma and Jonathan Pryce as The Master.

That Chris refers to Chris Chibnall, who'll be stepping in as the series' new showrunner, following the departure of Stephen Moffat. His first season next year will be the 11th of the new generation of the show.

Whittaker anticipated some controversy over the choice of a woman as the new doctor despite such a move being well trailed, but said viewers didn't need to worry.

The BBC made no small feat of revealing the huge news as they made the announcement directly after the men's Wimbledon Tennis Final with a short teaser advert.

"Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away". Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role.
