Former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has been talking about the casting of Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor in the next series.
Speaking about the bizarre controversy over casting a woman in the role, Gillan said “I’m so happy – it’s a female finally. People have questioned whether a female can play the role, and that’s completely ridiculous. And we’re about to find out with Jodie [Whittaker].
“I think she’s going to be incredible. She’s such an amazing actress. And I think she’s going to rejuvenate the whole show for everyone.”
