'She brought the episode to life and provided so much joy and energy!'

"If you've never seen the show before, this is a great season to start with".

There's one thing immediately apparent when watching the first episode of the new Doctor Who season - Jodie Whittaker is having the best time playing The Doctor.

Grace is an fantastic character, one who feels very at home in the optimistic and sometime idealistic world of Doctor Who, and Clarke plays her to perfection.

"Introducing the all-new #DoctorWho Barbie doll inspired by the iconic series' Thirteenth Doctor", the official Barbie Twitter account announced Sunday. Jodie Whittaker was convincing as the Doctor from minute one, new showrunner Chris Chibnall has slightly remixed the look and pace of the show, and I absolutely loved Segun Akinola's new score (I'll always have a soft spot for Murray Gold, but he'd gotten a bit same-y).

Sony is hoping " Venom " will launch a shared universe similar to Disney's lucrative superhero franchise. That easily set a new October record, topping the " Gravity " debut of $55.7 million.

It was the brainchild of 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman , heir apparent of the world's largest oil exporter. Similarly, Saudi activist Loujain al-Hathloul was arrested in the UAE and returned to Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

He maintains China is meddling in next month's U.S. midterm elections by targeting key states that are likely to sway the outcome. The Pentagon will release a report on Friday, accusing China of seeking to undermine the U.S. military's industrial base.

The series opener garnered a 40.1% audience share for the BBC in the U.K. After the episode came to a close, an extended preview of upcoming installments revealed glimpses of new guest stars who will appear throughout the ten-episode run.

I ask her if the groundbreaking nature of the change - the first female incarnation of The Doctor on TV - was part of her attraction to the role.

Jodie Whittaker's turn as the timelord was well-received by critics, as well as fans in the United Kingdom who tuned in in droves to the new season of "Doctor Who". It took the edge off the episode for me, as I was constantly waiting for her demise, and the more I knew it was coming, the more disappointed I became. "I think, it's a really important moment because its 2018 and we shouldn't be surprised that sometimes our heroes are women". And as one of the tweets says above, wouldn't it have been something to see three generations of women aboard the TARDIS in Doctor Who season 11?

Blogtor Who, another site dedicated to the show, said Whittaker was "utterly believable" in the starring role. And isn't Jodie Whittaker just fabulous!?
