Ex-Doc David Tennant Diagnoses Latest ‘Doctor Who’ As "Exciting"

Jodie appeared on the show to talk about the new series

These are the best overnight ratings the show has had for a regular episode, i.e. one that is not a holiday special or anniversary event, since the Series 4 finale in 2008, io9 reports.

"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". That first episode was watched by an average of 9.9 million.

Doctor Who has been one of the most anticipated new TV shows of the year ever since the BBC revealed that Jodie Whittaker would be taking over the role of the Time Lord and becoming the first female Doctor.

Not only was this the first episode for Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, but it was also the debut of Chris Chibnall as the new showrunner. All set to the iconic Doctor Who theme song. It would be an understatement to say that viewers enjoyed the new iteration of the Doctor.

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.

The Woman Who Fell To Earth, a new episode of the BBC science fiction drama, has just aired in the United Kingdom, introducing audiences to Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, a role she claimed in July a year ago amid increasing calls for it to go to a woman.

USA officials have said the sanctions will remain in place until North Korea has "fully" and "verifiably" denuclearized. North Korea's state newspaper Rodong Sinmun called the sanctions "rude" in light of its conciliatory measures.

Making her debut as the first female Doctor, Jodie won rave reviews with fans - known as "Whovians"- who have been eagerly waiting to see her portrayal on the much-loved character.

"Half an hour ago I was a white-haired Scotsman".

But while there's always a lot of scrutiny about the new casting, the 13th Doctor has trumped them all, because she is *clutches pearls em *Broadchurch (where she played opposite the 10th Doctor, David Tennant), or even from the cool sci-fi film Attack the Block.

But he recalled details-which, he said, an eyewitness described to him at the time-that match Ramirez's memory of what happened. The picture that has formed of him since then in the press has been of a hard-partying prep school athlete and Yale frat boy.

While there wasn't a surprise phone call or shock cameo in this instalment, we did manage to see the Doctor get to work building her Tardis - or Tardis-esque contraption - completely from scratch, along with her sonic screwdriver.
