By now, everyone and their K9 knows that the next Dr Who is Jodie Whittaker.
I’ve left this a little while since we’ve had all of the fuss that “She’s a woman” and I myself was happy enough that it’s just the usual New Doctor Cycle, where we all don’t like the idea of a new Doctor but by the end will fall in love with the new one.
The thing that recently caught my eye was this Tweet from BBC Radio 6, which contains an extract on an Interview with Jodie. I’ll let you have a watch and carry on below…..

Still with me? Great. The thing I took away from this was her enthusiasm and slight fear at the daunting task ahead of her. I remember back to Capaldi’s reveal, seeing him nervously playing with one of his rings during the interview and I realised that both Actor’s were incredibly excited and were giving the role the reverence that it deserves.
I don’t see how people can be upset when someone has that passion and enthusiasm for a programme that they enjoy, surely it can’t be in any safer hands than someone who wants it to succeed?
I wonder if she will keep the awesome Yorkshire accent though?
