Well that took long enough. The 13th Doctor Who has been announced and the rumors—which many thought was a pipe dream—were true, it’s a woman.
Actress Jodie Whittaker will be the Thirteenth Doctor. You may recognize her as the tormented mother from Broadchurch if you’re up on your BBC television game.
She will be replacing Peter Capaldi, and this is kind of a big deal.
While many on Twitter are celebrating the decision. There are plenty of male chauvinist tears being shed. Oh well.
And if you’re a legit Dr. Who fan, the Master’s last regeneration should have prepped you for this. Also, if this is enough to get you to quit the show, you won’t be missed.
Check out the best reactions to the 13th Doctor from Twitter below and on the flip.
