New Time Traveller Shoes for Doctor Who
After many months of speculation, the BBC announced to the world that Jodie Whittaker would be slipping into the brilliant time traveller’s shoes as the latest Doctor Who. She will be the first ever female actress to be cast as the Thirteenth Time Lord and will take over from Peter Capaldi who leaves the show in this year’s Christmas Special.
Wanderers of the 4th dimension have welcomed the casting of head writer and executive producer Chris Chibnall, who takes over from Steven Moffat on the next series, and made the gutsy decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role.
Jodie is an experienced and engaging actress who is well known and respected for her role in the hit show Broadchurch. Talking to the BBC, Jodie said “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”
The announcement was presented to the world in a short TV Clip that was watch by millions around the world. See it here if you missed it YouTube New 13th Doctor Who. You have to admire the magic of this brilliant British series and although there may have been a few critics, this casting is bold and fresh. As the Doctor always says,’ You can’t rewrite time’ and we are sure that time will make her a fitting and worthy Time Lord. Jodie will take her place amongst a long and distinguished list of credible doctors defending time and space, with no doubt an updated sonic screwdriver and revamped TARDIS. Her loyal and worthy companion remains still yet unconfirmed as the writers develop the latest SI FI adventures against the Cybermen, Daleks or perhaps the chilling Weeping Angles.
But what will she wear? Doctor’s have always had a wonderful array of time traveling extravaganza from floppy hats, multicolored scarves to an impressive line up of long military styled leather coats. Whatever they choose, it’s sure to become the latest “must have” fashion item. Thrilled as we were to see Matt Lucas travelling the universe and defending mankind in his knitted hoodless Duffle coat, we are already championing the nations most beloved and original Duffle’s as a real contender for the latest Doctors iconic designer coat. What more could she possibly need? A #dufflecoat would not only have her looking great but its guaranteed to keep her safe and warm for her upcoming adventures. Good luck Jodie, we will be watching, and remember…Don’t Blink!
