It’s about damn time. The final minutes of the “Doctor Who” Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time” finally shattered the glass ceiling for the long-running BBC series. For the first time in the franchise’s history, the Doctor regenerated into a woman as the world was introduced to Jodie Whittaker’s thirteenth Doctor.
Whittaker appeared in the final minutes of “Twice Upon a Time,” right after Peter Capaldi took his final bow after playing the character for the last four years. “Oh, brilliant,” Whittaker mutters before being thrown into space. The special ended with a very exciting text: “To be continued.”
Whittaker will be leading the show’s eleventh season, which will also see Chris Chibnall step into the roles of executive producer and head writer. Watch Whittaker’s debut in the video below.
