About Jodie Whittaker
The Doctor has regenerated again, with Jodie Whittaker making her debut as the show’s first female lead in Doctor Who (2022 specials). Joining new showrunner Chris Chibnall and executive producer Matt Strevens, she is set to appear in a trio of episodes alongside some old and new faces. These include guest appearances from previous Doctors Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, plus Mark Gatiss who has written for every series since 2010.
The Brilliant New Companions
Doctor Who fans have seen some of their most beloved companions reappear and take up a new role with The Doctor, from returning to our screens and meeting her for the first time, but it is yet to be confirmed who will become a companion next. There has been no announcements about what we can expect to see in Doctor Who 2022 specials, but I’m sure any Whovian would jump at the chance of seeing Jodie again.
The Confirmed Villains
Fans speculated who might be in line to take on the role of the Twelfth Doctor when David Tennant announced he would step down from the role, with many predicting it would be a female actor. When Jodie Whittaker was finally announced as Peter Capaldi’s successor on July 16th 2017, becoming not only the first woman to play Doctor Who but also Doctor number thirteen in its 54-year history, fans were ecstatic.
Jodie Whittaker made her debut in 2017 and went on to establish herself as one of the most dynamic Doctors ever, announcing today that she will leave after playing the role for three more specials.
The new series is set to air on BBC One .
