Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker revealed as 13th Time Lord

Published

on

For the first time in the rich history of BBC’s Doctor Who, a female has been cast in the title role. It was announced earlier today during the Men’s Wimbledon Final that Jodie Whittaker will take on the role of Time Lord with Peter Capaldi stepping down after spending three years in front of the camera.

Whittaker’s star has been on the rise during her time on the English crime drama Broadchurch which recently aired it’s final season on ITV and is currently running on BBC America in the States. The show features a very strong ensemble featuring Whittaker alongside the two leads, Olvia Colman and former Doctor, David Tennant.

Broadchruch creator Chris Chinball will join Whittaker as the new head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who next season. Here’s what he had to say to the BBC about Whittaker taking on the role of the 13th Doctor.

“After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we’re excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.

“I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away. 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 Thirteenth Doctor is on her way.”

Whittaker will make her debut on the traditional BBC Christmas Special.

This was the first look we got at Phoenix in his Joker makeup which is a combination of a throwback to Cesar Romero’s iconic portrayal of the “Clown Prince” with a little bit of John Wayne Gacy mixed in. Overall, the reaction to the video has been extremely positive with DC fans thirsting for a departure from the DCEU.

It should also be noted that this may not be the final look for the character.

Here’s a description of what we know about Phoenix’s Joker thus far via Wikipedia:

A failed stand-up comedian disregarded by society who is driven insane and becomes a psychopathic criminal mastermind. Phoenix is the seventh actor to portray the Joker in a film; prior to his casting, Leonardo DiCaprio had been considered. Phoenix had been interested in a low-budget “character study” of a comic book character and his agent recommended that he set up a meeting with Warner Bros. to discuss, but he ultimately declined. Phoenix later became interested when the project was announced, stating, “It feels unique, it is its own world in some ways, and maybe … It might as well be the thing that scares you the most”. Phoenix lost a considerable amount of weight in preparation.

As of this writing, Joker is set to release on October 4th, 2019 in the United States.
