The beloved Dr Who gets a makeover

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - FILTER - @bbc­doc­tor­who

Since 1963, BBC’s Dr Who has de­lighted au­di­ences with its fan­tas­tic sci-fi ad­ven­tures, and is un­doubt­edly one of the most iconic Bri­tish tele­vi­sion shows in his­tory. Over half a cen­tury and 12 doc­tors later, the se­ries will have its first fe­male Time Lord, with ac­tor Jodie Whit­taker tak­ing the lead. Al­though feed­back from fans has been di­vided, we’re thrilled to see a woman tak­ing the show into the fu­ture, es­pe­cially dur­ing a time where the BBC has come un­der fire for gen­der dis­crim­i­na­tion.
