Jodie Whittaker Wants Her ‘Doctor Who’ To Be Accessible To Everyone — Including You

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Jodie Whittaker is the first woman to take on the role of the Doctor in the British television staple Doctor Who, a pivot in the historically male casting that’s 55 years in the making. “The Doctor, particularly the way [new showrunner Chris Chibnall] has written, is so full of hope and has that amazing ability to continually learn even with this extraordinary hindsight,” she says. “And that’s a life lesson, to never feel like you know the answer. And I think as adults we can often prejudge a scenario… [we’re] sometimes closed off to the openness of what could happen, and I think that’s the opposite of the Doctor. That’s an extraordinary thing to play.”
