An epic introduction for our first female Doctor.
Jodie Whittaker made her debut proper as the first female Doctor in the eleventh series premiere of 'Doctor Who' over the weekend, and it was far from a disappointing entrance. 'The Woman Who Fell to Earth' is funny, diverse, original, sad and thrilling all at the same time and we're eager for episode two.

We got no more than one and a half minutes of the Thirteenth Doctor last year's Christmas special, 'Twice Upon a Time', following her regeneration from Peter Capaldi's incarnation, so this has been an agonising nine month wait. But it was totally worth it.
Jodie Whittaker gets to work in new 'Doctor Who' images.
What is the Doctor up to? So far we've seen a slightly mischievous 'Doctor Who' teaser trailer and now some even more bewildering first pictures. Jodie Whittaker's first full episode as the Time Lord sees her make some unusual friends as she tracks down her TARDIS.
So what do we know about the premise of the eleventh series? In the last episode of season 10, 'Twice Upon a Time', the Doctor watches the inside of the TARDIS detonate following the regeneration in what looks like the worst system failure the Time Lord has ever had. She ends up getting ejected from the spaceship where she promptly hurtles towards the Earth, hand reaching desperately for the TARDIS as it tumbles far into space.

Who is joining Jodie Whittaker in the new series?
The first teaser for the forthcoming series of 'Doctor Who' premiered at the final of the FIFA World Cup over the weekend where we got our first look at the Doctor's possible new companions. There are three familiar faces (at least for the UK audience), though it's not clear as yet who is the most significant.

Davies was talking about Jodie Whittaker being cast as the first ever female 'Doctor Who' last year.
The news was received with almost universal delight, particularly from BBC sources, but the man responsible for ‘Doctor Who’s revival over ten years ago, Russell T Davies, has acknowledged that he’s “grown up” a lot since he publicly revealed hesitation over the idea some time ago.
“Okay, look, I know, some of us might be worried about the changes to come,” 54 year old Davies wrote in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine. “I worried, out loud, in print, once or twice, back in the old days, about the reaction to a female Doctor.”
Baker, the fourth Doctor, has returned to the BBC to help complete a long-lost episode from 1979 titled 'Shada'.
The loveably eccentric Baker, the longest-serving Doctor and now aged 83, has not starred as the Gallifreyan since 1981, when the character regenerated and the role was taken over by Peter Davison.
However, nearly 40 years on, the English actor has been persuaded to put on his trademark hat and stripey scarf once again, in order to finish off an episode that began filming in 1979 but which never completed due to BBC strike action.

Get ready for a "Peter Tour-de-force".
There's now just over a month to go until this year's 'Doctor Who' Christmas special hits the small screen, with hype surrounding the episode at an all-time high. Fans already know that this will be Peter Capaldi's final episode in the titular role, with Jodie Whittaker stepping in to become the first female-bodied Doctor to come to the television series. David Bradley will also be starring, taking on the role of the First Doctor, originally played by the late William Hartnell.
Peter Capaldi's final outing as Doctor Who is almost upon us
Capaldi isn't the only man leaving the series behind, with showrunner Steven Moffat handing over his duties to 'Broadchurch' creator Chris Chibnall for the future after the Christmas special. Having worked with Whittaker before on the ITV crime drama, it's going to be very interesting to see just how she and Chibnall bring the Doctor to life in a way like never before moving ahead.
One of the best looks for the Doctor so far.
You really have to hand it to the costume designers for 'Doctor Who'. Never failing to come up with a unique and wonderful ensemble for each new Doctor, the BBC have now unveiled the official look for Jodie Whittaker as the very first female incarnation of the Timelord.

He was not forgiving with his sly dig at the BBC.
It's never worth taking a dig at your workplace in public no matter how barely noticeable you think it is. 'Doctor Who' actor Nicholas Pegg has just found himself dropped from the BBC after making a sly and very rude comment about broadcasting company in his own magazine column.

If he thought no-one would figure it out then he really doesn't know 'Doctor Who' fans at all. The actor, who voices the Daleks in the sci-fi TV series, delivered a coded message in his Doctor Who Magazine column, with the first letter of each sentence spelling out a very offensive remark.

This year it'll be returning for a Christmas special, as has become tradition, as the baton passes from one version of the Doctor to another.
