The video has been retweeted more than 33,000 times and liked by more than 40,000 people since its release, with fans reacting excitedly to the announcement of Whittaker, who takes over the role of the doctor from Peter Capaldi and will be working with Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall, who is now Doctor Who's showrunner.

Capaldi had announced that he will be leaving Doctor Who back in January this year, and his character's regeneration into Whittaker is said to take place in the Christmas special this December.

In the clip, we see a figure wearing the 12th Doctor's clothing and the figure unhoods themselves to reveal a blonde Whittakerv as she walks toward the TARDIS.

Seoul Ready for Dialogue With Pyongyang Depending on N.Korea's Denuclearization
Experts add that South Korean capital Seoul, which has no missile defence, would be a "sitting duck" for the despot nation. The group proposed the family reunion to be held on October 4, in time for the Chuseok holiday, Korea's harvest festival.

Fans have been quick to praise the choice in casting, with many taking to social media to commend the fact a female will fill the Doctor's shoes.

"Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker's work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm".

"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey, with [showrunner Chris Chibnall] and with every Whovian on this planet", Whittaker told Variety. In the series, the Doctor travels through time in what from the outside appears to be a blue police telephone box, has the ability to regenerate, allowing a number of actors to play the role. And the past two Doctor's companions have been played by women as well (Pearl Mackie and Jenna Coleman).

In 2014, Michelle Gomez became the first female actress to play the Master, the Doctor's fellow Time Lord and main antagonist. "It's going to be a lot of fun". Whittaker will then be featured when the new season of Dr. Who premieres next year. The 13th Doctor is on her way.
