From the moment Peter Capaldi announced he would stand down as Doctor Who, Reddit threads and devoted fans were in a tizzy. Who would be next in line to step into the thirteenth doctor’s shoes? After months of speculation, it was finally announced yesterday that actress Jodie Whittaker is the next person to play the Time Lord – the first female to ever take the role – but what else should you know about her?

Her first film role came soon after, in the 2006 comedy drama Venus alongside acting heavyweights, Peter O’Toole and Vanessa Redgrave.

She’s been in a number of recognisable roles on screen. Remember Anne Hathaway’s best friend in One Day or Rupert Everett’s secretary in both of the St Trinian’s reboots? Yep, they were her. She also had parts in period dramas Tess Of The D’Urbervilles and Cranford.

Fact: her co-stars were Olivia Colman, was also hotly tipped to be a favourite for the next Doctor Who, as well as David Tennant, who played the 10th incarnation of the Time Lord.

Whittaker isn’t the first female to officially play the Doctor. That honour goes to Joanna Lumley, who appeared in th…
