Wonderful news – there is to be a female Doctor Who.

I was delighted to see that Jodie Whittaker had been announced as the new Time Lord.

The news the doctor is to be played by a woman for the first time in its history shocked the entertainment industry but it has been widely praised too. Having seen her act, it is clear Jodie is a talented and strong performer.

Change is good – let’s embrace this bold and exciting moment in time travel.
