Jodie Whittaker has just been announced as the first ever female Doctor Who.
That’s right, in its 54-year history, the show is getting a major shake-up.
Whittaker, 34, is an English actress from Yorkshire who is known for her work on shows including Broadchurch and Adult Life Skills.
The news was just announced on BBC1.
She will be the Thirteenth Time Lord and takes over from Peter Capaldi, who leaves the show at Christmas.
New head writer and executive producer, Chris Chibnall, who takes over from Steven Moffat on the next series, made the decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role.
