Jodie Whittaker revealed as first woman Doctor Who

It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope.

"Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away", he said.

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet", Whittaker said.

She will make her debut on the sci-fi show when the Doctor regenerates in the Christmas Day show.

Fans had been eagerly anticipating the news since the show revealed Friday that the announcement would come sometime after the men's singles final at the Wimbledon Championship.

She is going to replace Capaldi in an upcoming Christmas special before she takes on the role in the complete 11th series of Doctor Who next year.

In an interview with BBC, Jodie shared her excitement, "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".

"I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman".

Jodie Whittaker is best known for her role as Beth in Broadchurch. Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant - who starred with Whittaker on "Broadchurch" - and Matt Smith have also portrayed the title character.

For the first time, the Doctor is a woman, and we are freaking out! It was relaunched in 2005 and spawned a spin-off last year.

Whittaker's other credits include "Black Mirror", Sky 1's "The Smoke", and 2008's "Venus". "The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one".
