Who’s that lady? It’s the Doc­tor

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

The new Doc­tor Who crash- landed her Tardis on to tele­vi­sion screens last Sun­day.

This se­ries marks the ar­rival of Jodie Whit­taker – the 13th Time Lord and first ever fe­male Doc­tor – and her com­pan­ions Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Toisin Cole.

For the first time ever the pop­u­lar fam­ily sci-fi show will be beamed out to au­di­ences on Sun­day nights.

It’s a whole new era for the Doc­tor, then, and show-run­ner Chris Chib­nall said: “Jodie Whit­taker’s Doc­tor is about to burst into Sun­day nights – and make the end of the week­end so much more ex­cit­ing.

“Get ev­ery­body’s home­work done, sort out your Mon­day clothes, then grab some spe­cial Sun­day night pop­corn, and set­tle down with all of the fam­ily for Sun­day night ad­ven­tures across space and time.”

To mark the new Doc­tor’s ar­rival, the Ad­ver­tiser grabbed our Sonic Screw­driver and took the time out to ask Coat­bridge shop­pers for their thoughts on Whit­taker play­ing the role – and for their favourite ever Time Lords.

Mum Susie Vivers is a fan of Whit­taker, say­ing: “I saw her on Gra­ham Nor­ton re­cently and she was re­ally funny.”
