Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FIRST: How we broke story news hounds worked around the clock to make sure our read­ers were the first to know who would be the 13th Doc­tor – and we broke the news TWO WEEKS ago.

We were so sure of our scoop that we splashed it across the cover of the Week­end Sport and made the bold claim: “New Doc­tor Who is a woman”.

Af­ter the of­fi­cial con­fir­ma­tion Jodie, 35, said it was a “re­ally ex­cit­ing time” and urged fans of the hit sci-fi show not to be “scared by her gen­der”.

She said: “It feels over­whelm­ing, as a fem­i­nist, as a woman, as an ac­tor. It feels in­cred­i­ble.”

Peter Ca­paldi, 59, is ex­pected to be re­placed through re­gen­er­a­tion dur­ing the Doc­tor Who Christ­mas spe­cial.
