It has been announced that Jodie Whittaker is to play the next Doctor in Doctor Who. Now the actress has opened up about how it feels to take on such an iconic role. Her comments follow many months of speculation about whether the BBC would ever actually cast a woman in the role. The successor to Peter Capaldi’s Doctor was announced after the Men’s Wimbledon Final on BBC 1.
She said, “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. It feels incredible.”
