Jodie Whittaker has been announced as the new Doctor Who.

The reveal was made following the Men’s Wimbledon Final today. A short video teaser played showing someone in a hooded coat walking through a forest.

As the key to the TARDIS appeared in the person’s hand, they took off their hood and it was revealed to be actress Jodie Whittaker. This marks the first time an actress has played the Doctor.

Whittaker is expected to make her first appearance as the Doctor in this year’s Christmas special, which will be the final appearance for current Doctor Peter Capaldi.
