(The character is called the Doctor, not the Thirteenth Doctor. Look at Series 10 (Doctor Who). Also, I don’t think quotes should be italic.)

Series 11 of Doctor Who will premiere in 2018, helmed by new showrunner Chris Chibnall.[1][2] It will also star Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, the first woman to take the role.[3][4]

On 16 July 2017, it was announced that Jodie Whittaker would take on the role of the Thirteenth Doctor, following Peter Capaldi's regeneration in series 10.[4] Chibnall revealed, "I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman, and we're thrilled to have secured our number one choice."[3]

Whittaker, herself, stated, "I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey … It's more than an honour to play the Doctor [...] It feels completely overwhelming, as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can and can't be."[3]

Peter Capaldi, Whittaker's predecessor, has full confidence that "she's going to be a fantastic Doctor". "Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker's work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm. She has above all the huge heart to play this most special part."[3] Capaldi had previously expressed that he wants the next actor to take the role to finally be a woman.[5]

In an interview with Doctor Who Magazine, Whittaker stated that the new incarnation will not fundamentally change the character of the Doctor, saying: "It's a brand new body, and the body happens to be female."[6]
