"Attack the Block" star Whittaker will be seen on BBC One in the United Kingdom and on BBC America in the USA, as well as globally, with the long-running sci-fi series still one of BBC Worldwide's biggest-selling shows internationally. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope.

The Internet is still buzzing from Sunday's news that Jodie Whittaker will take over the title role from Peter Capaldi in the upcoming eleventh season of Doctor Who.

But others were thrilled, with one post - retweeted thousands of times - showing a girl watching the trailer of Whittaker walking towards the Tardis time machine in a forest, before exclaiming excitedly: "The new doctor is a girl!"

Capaldi paid tribute to Whittaker. "She's going to be awesome!" while The Night Of star Riz Ahmed wrote, "Jodie Whittaker is an incredible actress, an wonderful person, and I'm so glad she's the new #DoctorWho". "She has above all the huge heart to play this most special part. She is PERFECT." However, not everyone was happy with the casting, with The Avengers writer and director Joss Whedon commenting: "I'm absolutely for progress and inclusiveness but it is fair to worry when nearly every ep of Doctor Who revolved around his big ol' d**k".

The adventures of the doctor - a time traveling, humanoid alien who traverses the universe - have maintained a loyal following since they were first aired in 1963. The outgoing showrunner will be handing over the show to Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall. Whittaker will work alongside Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall, who takes over as executive producer.
