Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet the Thirteenth Doctor!

Without further ado, the thirteenth Doctor has arrived:

BBC announced Jodie Whittaker, star of Broadchurch and Attack The Block, is the first-ever female Doctor and will make her debut at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special later this year.

“I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey, with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet,” Whittaker said. “It’s more than an honor to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”

Whittaker takes over the TARDIS from Peter Capaldi, who portrayed the Doctor since 2013.

As promised, the Thirteenth Doctor was announced during the Wimbledon men’s finals a few minutes ago.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
