Jodie Whittaker will be replacing Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor on Doctor Who. She will debut in an upcoming Christmas special before taking on the role fully in the upcoming 11th series of the long-running British science fiction show, which is expected to air in late 2018. This is the first time that the Doctor will be played by a female actor.
