"I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey, with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet", Whittaker said.

As our colleagues at HuffPost U.K. noted, this kind of response shows exactly why it's so important for iconic characters to be played by both men and women, much like the impact of Wonder Woman has been demonstrating this summer.

On Sunday, the BBC announced that "Broadchurch" and "Black Mirror" star Jodie Whittaker will be the 13th "Doctor" in the long-running sci-fi series "Dr". It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope.

Jodie Whittaker is taking the reigns from Peter Capaldi to become the 13th Doctor Who. Chibnall, who will be replacing Steven Moffat as showrunner, explained.

Capaldi paid tribute to Whittaker.

Following the announcement, Whittaker said "it feels incredible" to take on the role. "She is PERFECT." However, not everyone was happy with the casting, with The Avengers writer and director Joss Whedon commenting: "I'm absolutely for progress and inclusiveness but it is fair to worry when nearly every ep of Doctor Who revolved around his big ol' d**k". He was succeeded by David Tennant (who now stars in Broadchurch).

So while we wait for season 11 of "Doctor Who" to start (apparently in August 2018, according to Digital Spy), we'll be content watching this video over and over, basking in the beauty of one little fan's pure elation. "She's going to be awesome!" while The Night Of star Riz Ahmed wrote, "Jodie Whittaker is an incredible actress, an fantastic person, and I'm so glad she's the new #DoctorWho".

The final episode of the Moffat and Capaldi era is a special scheduled for Christmas Day.

"Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away", he said.
