Jodie Whittaker draws big as first female Doctor Who

When you compare those numbers to previous Doctor Who seasons, and other shows on BBC, it's easy to see that this new installment is on pace for an unstoppable performance.

Whittaker's first outing as the Doctor also almost doubled the ratings for the BBC One series when compared with the first episode of the previous run in 2017, which had an average overnight audience of 4.6 million.

What happens in Jodie Whittaker's first Doctor Who episode? 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. If they tried too hard to make this a "look, she's the Doctor and she's a woman" as the central theme, it would have seemed jarring.

Fans of the BBC sci-fi hit were quickly impressed with the Broadchurch star's take on the beloved character. And isn't Jodie Whittaker just fabulous!? "What I've had previously is, 'I recognize you maybe from that, maybe from that.' This is, 'I know who you are, ' and that's an adjustment".

'I mean what a thing, for the rest of my life, for that to be me. Not because she's a woman.




The Doctor is in, and on her way to toy chests and display shelves. 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.

"Listen. I've never been able to pick a favourite doctor-until now", tweeted another. "Jodie is the Doctor".

Blogtor Who, another site dedicated to the show, said Whittaker was "utterly believable" in the starring role. It would be an understatement to say that viewers enjoyed the new iteration of the Doctor.

Another trailer previewed the many guests that are set to appear in the eleventh series, and one of the most highly anticipated guests was Sex And The City's Chris Noth, 63.

The actress calls herself a "New Whovian" that began watching the show after she got the role.
