First Female 'Doctor Who' Jodie Whittaker Debuts To Rave Reviews

I ask Whittaker to help me understand how her Doctor will be different, by asking if she could distill her Doctor to just one dominant trait, boil her down to one aspect what it would be.

A new Barbie goes on sale today based on Jodie Whittaker's incarnation of the character, complete with her colourful clothing, including rainbow braces and a hooded trenchcoat.

The Woman Who Fell To Earth, a new episode of the BBC science fiction drama, has just aired in the United Kingdom, introducing audiences to Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, a role she claimed in July a year ago amid increasing calls for it to go to a woman. It's rare that I don't love Doctor Who, even when I'm frustrated with it, even when it makes me cry, but this was one of those times. And on Monday, the Barbie doll version of Whittaker's Doctor is available for purchase.

"Half an hour ago I was a white-haired Scotsman".

I got together with a bunch of friends at my apartment to watch it and everyone loved the episode - even people not that familiar with the series.

Despite this, the use of BBC iPlayer and catch-up on BBC channels could mean Jodie's number ends up eclipsing her predecessor. Not because she's a woman.

The Doctor is in, and on her way to toy chests and display shelves. British comedian Lee Mack and actor Alan Cumming ("Instinct") had already said they would be in the show and were seen for the first time. It was very much, I want to be able to do this and I want to be able to show you I can do it.

"Thirteen is my fave. But, I certainly wasn't coming at it from a Whovian standpoint, so it's been exciting for me to kind of be welcomed in and realising why there's so much love for it out there, because it's absolutely incredible, and I think it's been a really exciting journey and one that I'm really glad is not over yet". "Jodie is the Doctor".

The actress previously said that, unlike other parts, she was never asked to do any particular voice for the Doctor, so she just stuck with her own.

However, Jim Shelley said Whittaker's Doctor was "relentlessly irritating" and the revamp a tame affair lacking in drama. The series opener garnered a 40.1% audience share for the BBC in the U.K. After the episode came to a close, an extended preview of upcoming installments revealed glimpses of new guest stars who will appear throughout the ten-episode run. I loved the accent, that's an accent I grew up hearing which makes it all the better.
