Doctor Who: See Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord!

at . Comments

Doctor Who is changing up for Season 11 and that means the show will have its first-ever female time lord. 

The exciting announcement was made just a few months ago, and we're intrigued to see the brand new episodes which feature Jodie Whittaker as the elusive character.

The BBC knows fans are dying for any information about the new season, and they have gifted fans in the best way possible. 

A picture was released this morning, and it shows Whittaker in character with a scenic backdrop and, of course, the TARDIS is also part of the image. 

Could we imagine the show without the TARDIS? That is not the type of show we would like to watch!

Whittaker is taking over the role from Peter Capaldi who will solve his final case in next month's Christmas special which will likely be a heartbreaking affair for fans of the series.

Capaldi's performance gave the show a new lease of life, and it brought with it snappier writing and excellent characters. 

With the Doctor having a new face, it means there will be a whole new cast of characters. In fact, the show recently confirmed the addition of three brand new series regulars. 

Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK)  has been added as Graham, Tosin Cole (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Ryan and Mandip Gill (Hollyoaks) as Yasmin.

Doctor Who Quotes

Only in darkness are we revealed. [...] Goodness is not goodness that seeks advantage. Good is good in the final hour, in the deepest pit, without hope, without witness, without reward. Virtue is only virtue in extremis. This is what *he* believes, and this is the reason above all I love him, my husband. My madman in a box. My Doctor.

Nardole [quoting River Song]

Once, long ago, a fisherman caught a magic haddock. The haddock offered him three wishes in return for its life. The fisherman said, “I’d like for my son to come home from the war. And a hundred pieces of gold.” The problem is, the magic haddock, like robots, don’t think like people. The fisherman’s son came home from the war, in a coffin. And the king sent a hundred gold pieces in recognition of his heroic death. The fisherman had one wish left. What do you think he wished for? Some people say he should have wished for an infinite series of wishes, but if your city proves anything, it is that granting all your wishes is not a good idea. [...] In fact, the fisherman wished he hadn’t wished the first two wishes.
