'Doctor Who': The Internet Reacts to the Thirteenth Doctor's Debut

"Doctor Who" fans got their first glimpse of a historic new Doctor on Christmas night as Jodie Whittaker made her first appearance in the role as part of the series' annual Christmas special.

Capaldi's portrayal of the iconic time travelling alien from Gallifrey was met with universal critical acclaim.

The emotional instalment co-starred David Bradley as the original Doctor, who re-enacted scenes from a 1966 episode of the long running sci-fi series.

A representative of the company did not immediately respond to The Independent's request for comment. Cook earned his $9.33 million end-of-year bonus thanks to strong stock market performance.

Capaldi's tenure coincided with an overall darker era; he filmed, an appropriately numbered, twelve 12-rated episodes.

The five-minute video, which was the end of the series' Christmas special, features outgoing star Peter Capaldi regenerating into Whittaker, who will become the 13th time lord in the franchise's more than 50-year history.

However that can also be attributed to extenuating circumstances, specifically the increased popularity of catch-up TV and the show being shunted around the schedules to accommodate other programmes. But, after meeting his former self, the First Doctor (here played by Game of Thrones' David Bradley), the Time Lord gives in and regenerates alone in his time-traveling ship, the TARDIS.

After 54 years and 826 episodes, the Doctor has regenerated as a woman. Perhaps new showrunner Chris Chibnall will take the more traditional route and leave us all waiting until the Fall to hear her first words?

It's December 25th and you know what that means. "I can't wait", she said in a statement at the time she was announced as the new "Doctor".
