How They Filmed Jodie Whittaker's First Doctor Who Episode

Jodie Whittaker is definitely not from

Jodie Whittaker's debut as the first female Doctor Who drew the BBC show's biggest season launch viewing figures in a decade. The new season kicked off yesterday (October 7) with Whittaker's very first episode, The Woman Who Fell to Earth, which saw the new Doctor meet her soon-to-be companions - and while everyone impressed, there's one outstanding character who didn't make the final cut. It's got new monsters, it's got fantastic new worlds.It's also got worlds that we're familiar with, but are maybe seen from different points of view.

Naturally, the first female incarnation of The Doctor has angered wild pissbabies everywhere, and generated a lot of debate and discussion. It is way too early to gauge where Whittaker fits in the pantheon of Doctors, but her hyperactive, clever and amusing performance brought to mind a greatest hits package of Christopher Ecclestone (the Ninth Doctor) and David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor), with less of the darkness that has been favoured of late. It took the edge off the episode for me, as I was constantly waiting for her demise, and the more I knew it was coming, the more disappointed I became.

"When I was growing up, there was never a question that as a girl you would look up to guys".

What did you think of the new Doctor Who premiere? "And why recast if you don't want to continually have a new perspective?"

Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation leaves everyone bruised
Trump spoke generally Saturday when he said he though there should be punishment for the "many false things" said about Kavanaugh. Yet, we have studied the result of seven Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiries - which have found no evidence of misconduct.

Chibnall promised that his Doctor Who would get back to basics with stories that weren't aimed exclusively at hardcore fans, and that's evident from the outset of this crisp, fast-moving opener.

Well, you'd better get used to it, lads, because Ms Whittaker is here now and she's absolutely wonderful.

Writer-producer Chris Chibnall said in a separate interview that the fan reaction to Whittaker's casting was better than he expected, even though some people balked at a woman taking over the role of the titular Time Lord.

Dyspraxia wasn't the only issue the show dealt with, it also tackled problems that can affect all of us. They're off kilter, walking on baby legs as they discover the new aspects of themselves. It will screen on the ABC on Monday nights at 5.55pm.
