The cult favourite BBC show Doc­tor Who caused waves and ma­jor talk­ing points af­ter the an­nounce­ment that a woman, Jodie Whit­taker, will be tak­ing over the role of the tra­di­tion­ally male Doc­tor. The show has been drop­ping hints in its lat­est se­ries, with the 12th Doc­tor Peter Ca­paldi talk­ing about the pos­si­bil­ity of a fe­male rein­car­na­tion. “It’s more than an hon­our to play the Doc­tor.” said Whit­taker, who is known for her roles in Broad­church, Black Mir­ror, and Venus. “It means re­mem­ber­ing ev­ery­one I used to be, while step­ping for­ward to em­brace every­thing the Doc­tor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”
