Doctor Who: Fans hail Jodie Whitaker in female Doctor's first appearance

Jodie Whittaker is definitely not from

She delivered the requisite post-regeneration comedy easily, and expertly portrayed a Doctor who knows everything and knows nothing at the same time.

Well, you'd better get used to it, lads, because Ms Whittaker is here now and she's absolutely wonderful.

This season features 10 stand-alone episodes; you have a huge series character arc for numerous characters, but if you come in at episode five, you'll get a stand-alone story which feels like a film.

But her first full episode as the 13th Doctor aired on Sunday in the UK.

Jodie is the first ever woman to play the time-traveller and, although she's proud to make history, she's predicted there will be many more female Doctors to come. "That's the major thing, not the female bit", she tells me.

There's a lot riding on this episode, probably the most important since Russell T Davies relaunched the series with Christopher Eccleston in 2005. Fans of the reboot have thus far been robbed of this experience, and I hope that we can expect more ludicrous finales as the weeks roll by.

And no one helps, but we are warned before every single game to play the same players". The attitude was fantastic", Pochettino said. "It's important to be relaxed and calm".

"This production value and writing is everything I've always wanted this show to be".

"You are famous before you've stepped on set, so you've made this huge life choice for your family forever and yourself and your career and you are a familiar face before you've kind of accepted yourself what that will mean", she said. "I think, it's a really important moment because its 2018 and we shouldn't be surprised that sometimes our heroes are women".

"If you've never seen the show before, this is a great season to start with. (And I've rarely had a hard time with accents)". And as one of the tweets says above, wouldn't it have been something to see three generations of women aboard the TARDIS in Doctor Who season 11? They're off kilter, walking on baby legs as they discover the new aspects of themselves.

'Jodie Whittaker is an fantastic Doctor.

Doctor Who will be available on ABC iView on Mondays at 5.45am AEDT, from October 8, immediately after the United Kingdom broadcast.
