Greetings Space Cadets, The Thirteenth Doctor has been revelled to be Jodie Whittaker. Watch how Jodie Whittaker was revealed as the next Time Lord at Transparent-Aluminium.net. The trailer showed a hooded figure walking through woods, with birdsong and breath the only sounds heard. An empty palm was pictured, on which a key appeared – before Whittaker’s face was glimpsed. Viewers then saw her take off her hood, smile and walk towards the Tardis.

She was revealed in a trailer that was broadcast on BBC One at the end of the Wimbledon men’s singles final. The Broadchurch star succeeds Peter Capaldi, who took the role in 2013 and leaves in this year’s Christmas special. Jodie Whittaker, 35, said it was “more than an honour” to become the Doctor. She will make her debut on the sci-fi show when the Doctor regenerates in the Christmas Day show.
