The announcement in July had the effect of a small revolution : the next Doctor Who would in fact be… a woman doctor ! And here is the first image.
While a fringe of humanity in the process of fossilization is flagellum cursing the “feminization” of the universe, that a package of human(e)s is delighted to attend a little change – while the majority in bat nicely the steaks -, Doctor Who has unveiled what it will look like its new incarnation.
It comes to Jodie Whittaker, that you have among other things been able to see in Broadchurch and Attack the block. If his appearance seems at first glance a lot more bright and colorful than that of its predecessors, it does not resolve completely with the canon of the series, and distills several references. The coloured stripes of his t-shirt evoke away the scarf of Tom Baker, while his shoes would probably not be denied by Matt Smith.
We will discover this new Doctor in the upcoming Christmas Special, before it takes off in the 11th season, under the aegis of showrunner Chris Chibnall.
