It has recently been revealed that Jodie Whittaker is replacing Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who in the long-running British science fiction TV series.
Whittaker’s casting makes her the first female actor to ever play “The Doctor”, the ancient Time-Lord who has been represented by men on screen since 1963.
Here’s the internet’s reactions:
