Jodie Whittaker Feels Guilty For Phoebe Waller-Bridge Being Hounded About 'Doctor Who'


Jodie Whittaker Doctor Who

Jodie Whittaker is glad that she can finally reach out to Phoebe Waller-Bridge and apologise for all the 'Doctor Who' rumours she had to deal with in the run-up to the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor. Jodie was so under scrutiny that she couldn't so much as text her friend.

The BBC always like to keep the identity of the next Doctor super secret until the right moment, which put a lot of pressure on Jodie Whittaker when she was told she was to take over from Peter Capaldi. She opened up about her big secret to Dermot O'Leary on BBC Radio 2 and apologised to her 'Broadchurch' co-star.

David Tennant Says Jodie Whittaker's Gender Will Be "Irrelevant" When She Plays 'Doctor Who'


David Tennant Jodie Whittaker Doctor Who

Amid the backlash from some quarters against the casting of a female Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi show’s former star David Tennant has backed the newly announced Jodie Whittaker, saying that her gender will be “irrelevant almost immediately” when she makes her debut.

The 46 year old actor, who played the Time Lord between 2005 and 2010, chatted with American talk show host Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’ on Thursday (August 10th). He said that although Whittaker’s appointment was the first time a woman has played the Doctor, the character has never been of any fixed gender, so a male actor is as relevant to the part as a female one.

“Whenever the Doctor changes, there’s a backlash,” Tennant explained. “Sure, Jodie is from a different gender – but that will be irrelevant almost immediately when she takes the part. It’s about finding the right performer at the right time, and that’s Jodie without a doubt.”

Jodie Whittaker Speaks About "Emotional" 'Doctor Who' Casting


Jodie Whittaker

Almost a month ago now, 'Doctor Who' fans found out that Jodie Whittaker would become the first female-bodied Doctor in the show's on-screen history. It was a move that was met with a little criticism by those who don't think a female should play the character, but one that was widely respected and accepted by many. They are after all watching a television series about a time-travelling alien...

Since the announcement, Whittaker has been keeping a low profile. Not on social media, fans have been waiting to hear from the star and now, she's finally opened up a little about the moment she found out she would be fronting one of the biggest sci-fi television shows the world has ever seen.

Here's Why Reports Are Saying Doctor Who Will Be Bisexual


Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker

With the new Doctor Who becoming a woman for the first time, there are rumours that there may be some sexual fluidity for the first time too. It certainly makes sense; while the Timelord's biological make-up changes with each regeneration, the memories of lost loves always stays the same.

We know that the Timelord civilisation is far more advanced than mankind; as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) mentioned in 'World Enough and Time' when he blasted gender stereotypes; so there's no reason why the Doctor can't be totally bisexual too. Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy (formerly the Master), hinted at as much recently when talking about the arrival of Jodie Whittaker.

Like it or loathe it, the latest Doctor Who incarnation is a woman and has got a lot of people talking - including previous actors who stepped inside the Tardis at some point during its run.

However, some opinions have caused more of a backlash than others and former Doctor, Peter Davison, has suggested he will now quit Twitter over his own comments about the gender change of the titular character.

Kris Marshall Could Land Role As Jodie Whittaker's Assistant In 'Doctor Who'


Kris Marshall Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker

Having been pipped to the post of the role as the next ‘Doctor Who’ by Jodie Whittaker when the BBC made its big reveal last weekend, Kris Marshall could reportedly yet land a place in the Tardis as the next Doctor’s assistant.

The 44 year old English actor had been the bookies’ favourite to be named as Peter Capaldi’s successor after he steps down after the upcoming Christmas special. However, the BBC confirmed on Sunday that the 13th Doctor would be 35 year old Whittaker, one of the stars of ‘Broadchurch’, who would be the first woman to play the Time Lord.

However, despite his disappointment at missing out on the title role, new reports suggest that former ‘Death In Paradise’ and ‘My Family’ star Marshall could be in line to be the new Doctor’s companion.

Peter Capaldi Gives Jodie Whittaker His Seal Of Approval


Peter Capaldi Jodie Whittaker

For those still whining about the prospect of having a female Doctor in 'Doctor Who', it's time to shut up because Peter Capaldi has just given Jodie Whittaker his official seal of approval. We all know that she's an amazing choice, but this just confirms it.

Nobody complained when The Master returned as Missy; why would you when she was being portrayed by the indomitable Michelle Gomez? So perhaps it's time sexist 'Doctor Who' fans out there afforded Jodie Whittaker that same courtesy. After all, Peter Capaldi has no doubts that she will be a memorable incarnation of this timeless Time-Lord.

Black Sea - Trailer And Clips


With jobs for submarine operators steadily beginning to dwindle, an entire sea crew find themselves without jobs. Captain Robinson (Jude Law) has been so committed to the job for so long, that the rest of the world has moved on without him. With his family gone, Robison is turned on to the reports of a Nazi U-boat abandoned at the bottom of the Black Sea. After assembling a crew of half British and half Russian sailors, they set of in search of the gold stash - a stash which will be shared equally amongst them, making them all multi-millionaires. But when the idea starts to circulate that fewer men mean larger shares, the bleak isolation leads to horror and greed, with no possibility of escape.
