The BBC has kept to their word of announcing the next person to play the iconic role of The Doctor in Doctor Who.
Jodie Whittaker, will be taking over control of the TARDIS from Peter Capaldi who has been in the role since 2013 and completing 3 seasons and numerous Christmas specials whilst he has been at the helm. Jodie can bee seen in films, such as; Attack the Block (2011) and St. Trinian’s (2007). Also appearing along side the 10th Doctor, David Tennant, in the critically acclaimed Broadchurch.
Jodie will take over the role this December when Peter bows out, with one last adventure, which looks set to be a great final story for the 12th Doctor, with him joining forces with the 1st Doctor (played by David Bradley).
