Jodie Whittaker, the thirteenth Doctor Who

My heart is still on fire, probably it’s a delayed heart attack, so you should call a Doctor. No, not a Doctor! The Doctor, the original one!

I’ve watched the trailer a few hours ago and I was curious about who Jodie Whittaker is… Now I found out more, and now I a curious what kind of Doctor she will be. For the moment she is the hottest sexiest Doctor in the series.

Guys and girls, stop arguing about the Doctor’s gender. It was about time your favorite Time Lord to go female, it’s not the first time in the history of Gallifrey and will not be the last one. If you want to argue about something argue about how the caracter is played or some other trivial stuff you want.
