Doctor Who: See Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord!

at .

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

Time. Time doesn’t pass. Time is an illusion. And Life is the magician. Because Life only lets you see one day at a time. You remember being alive yesterday, you hope you’re going to be alive tomorrow, so it feels like you are traveling one to the other, but nobody’s moving anywhere! Movies don’t really move. They’re just pictures, just lots and lots of pictures, all of them still. None of them moving, just frozen moments!

The Doctor

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.
