And she looks badass.

Jodie Whittaker is an wonderful English actress who has appeared in television and film since (at least) 2006. We became aware of her during her heart-wrenching performance as Beth Latimer on Broadchurch alongside Doctor Who alums David Tenant and Olivia Coleman.
We’re already experiencing an immense amount of complaints on the internet and the fact that we probably won’t get anything more than the short clip that announced her until Christmas means five months of speculation and whining!
And when all is said and done? We’re sure the next however many seasons Ms Whittaker gets will be fraught with both complaints and praise. That’s fandom folks.
I’ll admit I haven’t watched more than a handful of Peter Capaldi’s episodes (just didn’t enjoy his take on the character) so I am very excited to see what this new series will bring.
Good Luck Jodie! Can’t wait to call the 13th Doctor my favorite!
