Doctor Who Barbie doll is inspired by Jodie Whittaker

The tracks are laid perfectly to draw in new viewers and longtime fans alike, leaning in on our sofas wondering what is going on. Directed by Jamie Childs, "The Woman Who Fell to Earth" introduced Whovians to the Doctor's new friends, Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yaz (Mandip Gill), and Graham (Bradley Walsh).

"It's so hard to convey how proud you are and be something and not share it with the most important people, the fans", added Whittaker, who said that she wanted it to be the "norm" that future Doctors can come in all "shapes and sizes, genders, sexualities and ethnicities". She is the Doctor.

Whittaker also said then that the new role "feels completely overwhelming" but also "incredible" as a "feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to. challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can and can't be".

"JODIE WHITTAKER IS KILLING IT AS THE DOCTOR", posted one person on Twitter. When you compare those numbers to previous Doctor Who seasons, and other shows on BBC, it's easy to see that this new installment is on pace for an unstoppable performance. Fans of the reboot have thus far been robbed of this experience, and I hope that we can expect more ludicrous finales as the weeks roll by.

Despite this, the use of BBC iPlayer and catch-up on BBC channels could mean Jodie's number ends up eclipsing her predecessor. Let us know in the comments! No, I think to celebrate it is wonderful and that's the time but it'll be fantastic when there's thirteen female Doctors as well, in this long ongoing line that will carry on and evolve and change.

"Well, my relationship with it is I'm now a very new Whovian". I assume much of this was terrifying for children, and thank goodness for that! These early moments are where new showrunner Chris Chibnall and his team get to being crafting the world of this new, new era of the long-running show.

While there wasn't a surprise phone call or shock cameo in this instalment, we did manage to see the Doctor get to work building her Tardis - or Tardis-esque contraption - completely from scratch, along with her sonic screwdriver.

'That was probably the best New Doctor episode of NuWho.
