The show has had only male Doctors before Whittaker, played by various actors including William Hartnell, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and, most recently, Peter Capaldi. And sure enough, fans are raving about the changes.

Whittaker herself points out that for her, it wasn't about approaching the role 'as a woman, ' because of course that is how she approaches all her roles.

During the panel, Whittaker revealed the screwdriver for the first time. Something that helped might have been her already iconic new costume, which was meant to be both practical and timeless. "I can't wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it". And, if the Hall H audience is any indication, the fandom is ready for it. "New faces, new worlds, new times".

According to Gill, Yasmin is a 19-year-old from Sheffield who "enjoys her job, but she thinks she can do a little more, and she gets a little bit more". "This Doctor treats everything with a sense of awe, wonder and respect". This year of Doctor Who features the first writer (s) of color, and there are two women and three men coming in as guest writers this season.

U.S., North Korea meet over return of war remains
But a USA military official familiar with the matter said last month it was not clear what North Korea might hand over. The North then suggested holding general-level talks with the US-led United Nations Command, and Washington agreed.

And Chibnall added that he wants the new season, his first as well, to pull in fans who might have previously viewed the show's long history as alienating.

"Loud and amazing" said Jodie Whittaker today of her first Comic-Con asDoctor Who. "If you've never seen the show before it is the flawless time to start because you've got a brand new doctor". It matters that the Doctor is a woman, right now.

"She was just so compelling".

"Your heroes don't have to tick the same box". "This year is the ideal jumping on point for that person in your life who has never watched Doctor Who", he said.

Ben Stokes to play in England's first Test against India
Left-arm quick Willey took three for 40 in his nine overs and leg-spinner Rashid three for 49 in his maximum 10. The last couple of games in England might have broken India's recent dream spell in One-day Internationals.

"The thing about this role, which is why it's so fantastic for any actor to play, is that essentially gender is irrelevant and that's completely liberating", Whittaker told the audience.

"For me, the Doctor is pillar of hope, and striving for brightness and inclusion", Whittaker said. "I really love television when it is a communal experience..."

Diversity is also something that's important to the creators offscreen.

Since then we've learned she wears a long blue coat, wide leg pants with suspenders, boots and a t-shirt with a horizontal rainbow across it.

Graeme Souness’ Pre-Match Criticism Of Paul Pogba Now Seems Redundant
Paul Pogba holds the World Cup trophy along with his shinpads which carried an image of his late father. Argentina and maybe even more! "We have to beat the best to be the best!"

The line had a fashion show last night, showing off all of their latest threads, and wouldn't you know it - someone came out wearing the coat of the new 13th Doctor. Whittaker, Cole, and Gill are all bristling with personality (and also those Yorkshire accents that I can't get enough of), and I'm so happy to see the Doctor finally using those Time Lord powers to reflect the present.
