‘i’m beyond excited’
Jodie on becoming the 13th Time Lord
Jodie is delighted to be making history as the first woman to have the keys to the tardis.
‘i’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey with writer chris chibnall, and with every Whovian on this planet,’ says Jodie, adding that the first person she told was her actor husband, christian contreras.
‘i want to tell fans not to be scared by my gender. the fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one.’
should Jodie need any time-travelling tips, she is friends with not one, but four other time Lords!
‘i’m mates with Matt smith, chris eccleston and obviously David tennant and David Bradley from Broadchurch,’ she explains. ‘Four Doctors! And i’m also friends with a companion, Arthur Darvill [clergyman paul coates in
Broadchurch]. so i’m hoping i get some calls of advice!’
