Broadchurch takes over Doctor Who
After months of speculation, the BBC has announced that Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker (right) will be the 13th Doctor Who, taking over from Peter Capaldi when he leaves in the show’s Christmas special. Broadchurch writer and creator Chris Chibnall will take over as showrunner at the same time. “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet,” Jodie says. Doctor Who airs on Prime in New Zealand.
