Jodie Whittaker makes first appearance as Doctor Who

30 December 2017

Yesterday's Doctor Who Christmas special was the last episode for Peter Capaldi, who had played the 12th Time Lord since 2013 and earlier this year said he felt it was "time to move on".

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 good news is that it's very easy to watch Doctor Who in the UK. But, after meeting his former self, the First Doctor (here played by Game of Thrones' David Bradley), the Time Lord gives in and regenerates alone in his time-traveling ship, the TARDIS. The episode also marked the first (brief) appearance of Jodie Whitaker as the 13th doctor.

The first sight of Whittaker in the sci-fi show excited fans on social media, with fans hailing her "stunning" entrance whilst also bidding farewell to Capaldi...

Anyone searching for snow probably will have to head north of New York City and across CT , he said. The road would be rebuilt the next spring for higher speeds and better access to Route 22.

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

Taking place on the death-strewn battlefields of war and the ethereal realms of space and time, "Twice Upon A Time" is the final adventure of Capaldi's Doctor Who tenure. Perhaps new showrunner Chris Chibnall will take the more traditional route and leave us all waiting until the Fall to hear her first words?

In that sense, "Twice Upon a Time" is primarily interested in the question of why the Doctor would solider on, and, by positioning him against a much older version of himself, all while the promise of an historic regeneration into a female incarnation waits in the background, pointing out just how much the character has changed.
