Jodie Whittaker Debuts As First Doctor Who Barbie Doll

  • Doctor Who Season 11

Doctor Who is back.

You'll get the chance to make up your own mind as the episode airs this evening on the ABC at 5:55pm AEDT.

The long-running television series chronicles the adventures of an extraterrestrial time lord who travels to different time periods to help people, without doing anything drastic that may alter the course of history.

"It's an unusual journey", Whittaker told UPI about her new life under an intense spotlight, noting this level of attention seems similar to that afforded to actors who play comic-book heroes and super spy James Bond. Her death isn't the catalyst which causes the others to go travelling with the Doctor (as we saw in the final minutes, that's down to a transporter accident), and in terms of interesting companions, Grace feels much more well-rounded than Graham who barely makes an impression on the episode. I mean, genuinely. I love her. "Because she's THE DOCTOR". We didn't have that kind of decision making for me.

Doctor Who continues on BBC1, Sunday 14th October at 6.45pm. But also all that hard work is done because, Chris Chibnall the show runner is such an incredible writer that it's all there on the page and you don't need to have an encyclopaedic knowledge to watch the show.

The thing that's really helpful in episode one is being in Peter Capaldi [the previous Doctor Who's] costume for 95% of it and feeling like I was literally in someone else's shoes.

Luckily, he added, the runaway success of Game of Thrones has already brought Yorkshire accents to the world, "so hopefully most American audiences can understand what the hell this Sheffield crew is talking about".

In a country where over three times as many boys as girls study high school physics, and a 2014 survey revealed that some girls do not take physics because they think that boys are better with numbers, I find it hard not to see the selection of a female doctor as the greatest science communication opportunity of my lifetime.

"Full of hope" she says immediately.
