Alongside Whittaker, UK actors Kris Marshall, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Tom Rosenthal were among those in the running to fill Capaldi's shoes. Nor was it Idris Elba.

Jodie Whittaker will be the thirteenth "Doctor Who".

In the clip viewers saw a hooded figure strolling through a woods.

Whittaker will premiere as the Doctor this Christmas.

The BBC has confirmed that Jodie Whittaker is going to be filling Capaldi's shoes.

Doctor Who follows the adventures of a Time Lord who goes by the name Doctor; when he is mortally injured, he regenerates, changing his appearance and personality.

Another fan put it succinctly: "About time".

"I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman and we're thrilled to have secured our number-one choice". This is also a swan song for Moffat, who is handing over showrunning duties to Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall before the episode's end, and claims even he doesn't know the identity of Capaldi's replacement. She is the first woman to play the iconic role, and the 13th in a line dating back to the 1960s. "This is a really exciting time and Doctor Who represents everything that's exciting about change".

Whittaker had worked with current showrunner Chris Chibnall in Broadchurch, and there's no denying that she can play some very serious dramatic roles.

"It's more than an honor to play the Doctor", Whittaker said in a news release. Some praising the BBC for making a "progressive decision" while others are critical saying that the decision was not made to benefit the show, but to be "politically correct".

Say hello to the new Doctor Who. "I've been a fan for years and always hoped to work with her. She is an actor of great emotional range and inhabits every role with complete passion and conviction".
