Whittaker is the 13th incarnation of the character and the first female to take over the role. 

Speaking about taking on the role Jody says: "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."

Whittaker will make her first appearance in the role in the Dr Who special Christmas episode.
