In a separate statement, Chibnall explained why he chose Whittaker.
The revelation came as no surprise to some fans as there were multiple hints that the Doctor would regenerate into a woman in the last episode of series ten. "The 13th Doctor is on her way".
'After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we're excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, ' he explained. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The one thing everyone is curious about is whether she can pull off the comedic flair that is essential to the Doctor's character.
Doctor WhoSeason 10 introduced Pearl Mackie as the new companion, Bill Potts, replacing the previous companion, Jenna Coleman's Clara Oswald, who left after Season 9. In a dramatic reveal, a key appears in her hand as she removes her hood revealing shoulder length blonde hair (still not ginger) and readies herself to enter the Tardis.
