Humans and aliens alike have known for a while that they would be introduced to a new Time Lord following Doctor Who’s Christmas 2017 special. However, it was announced this month that the 13th Doctor would be revealed following the end of the Wimbledon men’s singles final. News then broke on July 16 that Jodie Whittaker will be assuming the role of the infamous Time Lord, historically breaking the long list of men who have filled the role since the series’ first run from 1963 to 1989, then again briefly in 1996 and finally when the series was revived in 2005. Whittaker being the first woman to be given the titular role is impossible to overlook, and should be recognized not only as a positive step for the series, but also one that is long overdue.
