  • Peter Capaldi is leaving the BBC show

Whittaker's progression on-screen has seen her bring unexpected vibrancy to even smaller roles, such as her performance as Beverly the receptionist in St Trinian's and St. Trinians: The Legend of Fritton's Gold. Peter Capaldi has already been featured in the Pompeii episode before he returned as 12.

In the last decade, however, there has been persistent speculation that a future incarnation of The Doctor might be female. Will a former companion eventually become the new face of Doctor Who? That's because Peter Capaldi will be joined in his swansong by Harry Potter star David Bradley, who will be playing the First Doctor - originally portrayed by William Hartnell from 1963-66. Despite a surprisingly common misconception, this is not a new thing.

Following the announcement, Whittaker said "it feels incredible" to take on the role.

The 13th Doctor was announced in a much-anticipated reveal by the BBC on Sunday. Chibnall obviously was instrumental in bringing Broadchurch's Whittaker on board. It was a tour-de-force and one of the single best pieces of acting in the show's history.

The one-minute long video trailer shows the number 13, obviously referring to the 13 Doctor, appearing in various famous landmarks across the world including the likes of 10 Downing Street, The White Cliffs of Dover and The Statue of Liberty.

A new Doctor won't be the only big change coming to Doctor Who next year, as executive producer and showrunner Steven Moffat is also stepping down.

"Her audition for the Doctor simply blew us all away", Chibnall explained. He was a brilliant jumping off point and was amazing in his soft-reboot debut in "The Eleventh Hour".

It's very nerve-racking, as it's been so secret!

My husband. Because I was allowed to! "What an unbelievable opportunity". And we thought: what's a really famous iconic name? It was a marvellous story, with many stand out moments.

It feels completely overwhelming, as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can and can't be.

Whovians are diehard Doctor Who fans, along the same line as Star Trek's Trekkers. His costumes From the sharp dark suit of Series 8 to the patched trousers and hoodies of Series 9, right through to the red velvet jacket and beyond, the Twelfth Doctor is a man of ever-changing outfits - all of them stylish and cool.

We had a strange chat earlier this year where he tricked me into thinking we were talking about Broadchurch. And I started to quiz him about his new job in Wales, and asked him if I could be a baddie!
