The twelfth regeneration of the Doctor has arrived and it has finally happened, a female time traveller! Jodie Whittaker is set to take over from Peter Capaldi as the Doctor in one of BBC's most well-nourished shows.
It has been on screen since 1963 and Whittaker is the first female to play the lead role. Over the years we have had a variety of the Doctor's assistants, both male and female. However, the new assistant has generated as much excitement as Doctor Who herself. Bradley Walsh who has been a fan of the show for fifty years has been cast as the new sidekick to the Time Lord.
