First Jodie Whittaker “Doctor Who” Scene


The BBC have just finished airing the “Doctor Who” Christmas special in the UK, an episode which closed out with the regeneration of The Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) into the Thirteenth (Jodie Whittaker).

“Broadchurch” actress Whittaker is the first woman to take on the role of the Time Lord and gets just over a minute of screen time in the episode. The network has released the last five minutes of the episode online which includes Capaldi’s three-minute final monologue and the change. Check it out below:

Whittaker’s first full series run in the role is expected to air late 2018.
