The announcement was made with a trailer that aired after the end of the Wimbledon’s Men’s Singles Final on Sunday.
In the trailer, a hooded figure walked through a forest, the sound of the Doctor’s TARDIS getting louder with each step, until a key appears in the Doctor’s hand, and she pulls down her hood to show her face, looking directly at the camera.
The trailer ended with the words: Introducing Jodie Whittaker, the 13th Doctor.
Jodie Whittaker had appeared in sci-fi show “Black Mirror”, in “Broadchurch”, and in John Boyega‘s debut sci-fi film “Attack the Block”.
