Jodie Whittaker makes her first appearance as 'Doctor Who'

Jodie Whittaker makes her first appearance as 'Doctor Who'

In the special, he refuses to regenerate, but we know he will end up doing so as Jodie Whittaker (Black Mirror) will be taking up the post in 2018 as the franchise's first female Doctor who was introduced for the first time during the special. Whittaker has also appeared in the likes of Attack the Block and Black Mirror.

Like his predecessors, Capaldi had his detractors, and there are those that emphasise that by pointing out Doctor Who's steadily declining ratings during his time in the TARDIS. The opening salvo from the new Doctor is something of new tradition in recent years with David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi all delivering memorable (and usually on the amusing side) first lines.

The emotional instalment co-starred David Bradley as the original Doctor, who re-enacted scenes from a 1966 episode of the long running sci-fi series.

The time travelling vehicle then span out of control with the Thirteenth doctor falling through its open doors into space.

However, pre-2005, only one of the incarnations actually spoke immediately post-regeneration (in this case, Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor in 1984).




With showrunner Steven Moffat departing, Doctor Who will be in the hands of Chris Chibnall going forward, whom Whittaker worked with on Broadchurch.

Peter Capaldi is not expected to attempt this during the forthcoming episode, Twice Upon A Time.

The episode is titled Twice Upon A Time, and will air on Christmas Day - that's Monday, December 25.

In its first twenty-six years, only one episode of Doctor Who fell on Christmas Day.
