This isn’t going to be long because the episode is still in progress. A new season of Doctor Who is upon us! Jodie Whittaker has become the first woman in the role and so far she is an absolute delight. Why is this so important to me? Because finally someone who looks like me is playing an iconic and heroic character. I’m excited for every little girl who’s going to see herself in The Doctor and make her own cardboard Sonic Screwdriver and pretend to save the universe in her own backyard.
