Jodie Whittaker makes onscreen debut as Doctor Who

28 December 2017

This year's Doctor Who Christmas Special was less a compelling adventure and more an opportunity to wallow in some self-reverential timey-wimey antics. "As we discovered at the climax of the last season, the Doctor is about to regenerate, but doesn't want to". Ultimately, The Hollywood Reporter said the Doctor will not regenerate with an audience (as the Doctor usually does) and will turn into the next incarnation while alone in the TARDIS, the Doctor's time-traveling ship/police box.

"Twice Upon a Time" delivers a fairly potent story about memory and nostalgia, one that understands the emotional attachment there is to the Doctor in all of its incarnations and how hard it can be to let go of any one of them.

The series is also undergoing a change behind the scenes as "Broadchurch" creator Chris Chibnall succeeds Steven Moffat as showrunner. Unfortunately, the newly reborn Doctor only has just enough time to mutter a quick "Oh, brilliant" before the entire TARDIS explodes, leaving her plummeting through the air towards the ground and viewers left waiting with a "to be continued" title card. "I've obviously seen her tiny bit at the end of the Christmas special". The casting of Whittaker was unveiled in July. Whittaker starred in Broadchurch as Beth Latimer, the mother of a child who is found murdered on the beach.

"I am Bill Potts and I'm back", she told the doubtful Doctor and so good has Mackie been in this role - warm, wry and wonder-filled - that it was tempting to yell at the screen: "Oh Bill I really wish you were". In October 2017, the BBC announced that Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill were set to join Doctor Who as the 13th Doctor's companions. The Christmas special marked a transition between the two Doctors. Clarke has starred as Lola Griffin in the medical drama Holby City and has starred in many musicals and plays in London's West End.

Whittaker is the 13th Doctor Who in the show's history, and the first female Doctor Who ever.
