Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker's debut is most watched launch for 10 years

Grace is an incredible character, one who feels very at home in the optimistic and sometime idealistic world of Doctor Who, and Clarke plays her to perfection. It's about people trying their darndest.

The Doctor's gender was not the only thing that felt new. And on Monday, the Barbie doll version of Whittaker's Doctor is available for purchase. It's basically an opportunity to give the show a soft reboot, it's a farewell to beloved old characters and a chance to say hello to a whole new cast.

Doctor Who's season premiere ended on a cliffhanger, but much like the snap of Thanos' fingers, it was somewhat undercut by a quick look at the next episode, which clearly shows that none of the main characters asphyxiated in the vacuum of space.

But her first full episode as the 13th Doctor aired on Sunday in the UK.

Most importantly for the children in the audience, we were able to communicate both the excitement of scientific research, and the feasibility of becoming a professional scientist regardless of your background.

We are thrilled to put together a remarkable moment around the world - for fans and new viewers alike - to celebrate this new era of Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker.

How did they keep Jodie Whittaker's reveal film a secret? I asked her what the response has been like for her. I loved the accent, that's an accent I grew up hearing which makes it all the better. I mean, genuinely. I love her.

Nana Patekar addresses Tanushree Dutta sexual harassment claim, says his truth stands
The press conference was to be held for Nana to address Tanushree's accusation of his misbehaviour on the set of a 2008 film. Nana Patekar returned from shooting " Housefull 4" in Jaisalmer and was mobbed by the paps at the airport.

A puzzled Yasmin explains it is because she is a woman, and the Doctor replies: "Does it suit me?"

"When I was growing up, there was never a question that as a girl you would look up to guys". It is way too early to gauge where Whittaker fits in the pantheon of Doctors, but her hyperactive, clever and amusing performance brought to mind a greatest hits package of Christopher Ecclestone (the Ninth Doctor) and David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor), with less of the darkness that has been favoured of late. We didn't have that kind of decision making for me.

"This production value and writing is everything I've always wanted this show to be".

"We thought it would be a massive, 80/20 against and it was 80/20 in favor, really", Chibnall said.

"We are half of the population, we are not alien. And why recast if you don't want to continually have a new perspective?" While the new Doctor Who premiere was certainly helped by the fact that it's an extremely popular franchise, the ratings are an impressive feat nonetheless.

"Well, my relationship with it is I'm now a very new Whovian".

Many said Whittaker was "perfect" for the part. Fans of the reboot have thus far been robbed of this experience, and I hope that we can expect more ludicrous finales as the weeks roll by. With a new showrunner, a new Doctor, new companions, and a new theme, the show has well and truly regenerated, and it's left looking a heck of a lot better, if not entirely flawless. They're off kilter, walking on baby legs as they discover the new aspects of themselves. And isn't Jodie Whittaker just fabulous!?
