The BBC revealed in a trailer following Wimbledon men’s singles final, that actress Jodie Whittaker will step into the shoes of the Doctor as the character’s next incarnation.

The Broadchurch star follows Peter Capaldi, who took the role in 2013 and leaves in this year’s Christmas special.

She joins another Broadchurch alum. Doctor Who’s new showrunner is Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall.

Whittaker told BBC News:

“It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”

As well as TV work, Whittaker has appeared on the big screen, in One Day, Attack the Block and St Trinian’s.
