First woman Doctor Who wants to be a role model to all

"Yeah, it's exciting I think, people who love the show love it because it's a celebration of inclusivity, a celebration of change, of regeneration, of embracing this wonderful alien and I think most people realise that me being a woman doesn't make me unqualified - I think maybe being human makes me unqualified".

When Yasmin refers to her as "madam", Whittaker's Doctor ask: "Why are you calling me madam?"

The Doctor's arch enemy The Master has most recently been brought to life as Missy, in a BAFTA-nominated performance by Michelle Gomez that easily ranks as my favourite incarnation of the evil Time Lord.

The fact that a Time Lord can periodically regenerate into another body was itself only invented to allow the show to sidestep the failing health of William Hartnell, who played the first Doctor on TV. "Because she's THE DOCTOR", while another declared: "Jodie is already my favorite Doctor".

The Doctor has had multiple companions in the past, but this feels more like a proper ensemble.

Of course, every new Doctor has quite the mantle to take up. Who's new cinematography is vast, colorful and sharp, director Jamie Childs making the most of Chibnall's Broadchurch roots to give even this Earth-based adventure a much needed facelift. If they tried too hard to make this a "look, she's the Doctor and she's a woman" as the central theme, it would have seemed jarring. "Because she's THE DOCTOR".

The episode was a pretty solid opening for a Doctor. This leaves little room to really dig into the monster of the week, this time a tooth-collecting alien hunter named "Tim Shaw" (at least, that's what his alien name sounds like to the Doctor, much to Tim's chagrin). She nails the character and immediately re-energises a series that was in danger of disappearing into its own black hole.

Well, you'd better get used to it, lads, because Ms Whittaker is here now and she's absolutely wonderful.

This season features 10 stand-alone episodes; you have a huge series character arc for numerous characters, but if you come in at episode five, you'll get a stand-alone story which feels like a film.

She added: "It should be interesting".

Remember when you first watched Day of the Doctor, a special the BBC threw a ton of money behind since it was a big event?
