Whittaker will replace Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord when he leaves the global hit at Christmas. New head writer and executive producer Chibnall, who takes over from Steven Moffat, made the decision to cast Whitaker. 

“I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman, and we’re thrilled to have secured our No. 1 choice,” Chibnall said. “Her audition for the Doctor simply blew us all away. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role.”
