Jodie Whittaker has been confirmed as the 13th incarnation of The Doctor on the BBC Science Fiction drama Dr Who. 

The first female to play the role in the 54 years or so since it started, she follows on from Peter Capaldis who only just seems to have grown into the role. 

Let’s hope that the writers will be better for her first season than Peter’s. Until this last season, many of the previous episodes were lacking in one way or another. 

Good luck Jodie!
