Doctor Who Barbie doll is inspired by Jodie Whittaker

"Because she's THE DOCTOR".

This sounds like both a mission statement for where new show-runner Chris Chibnall wants to steer the series and a direct address to all those pathetic fanboys who whinged and wailed and threw their toys out of the Tardis when it was announced in July a year ago that the Yorkshire-born star of Broadchurch would be the first female Doctor.

"It's so hard to convey how proud you are and be something and not share it with the most important people, the fans", added Whittaker, who said that she wanted it to be the "norm" that future Doctors can come in all "shapes and sizes, genders, sexualities and ethnicities".

New "Doctor Who" guest stars revealed included Chris Noth ("Sex and the City"), Mark Addy ("Game of Thrones"), and Phyllis Logan ("Downton Abbey"). "With her signature suspenders, lace-up boots and sonic screwdriver, this #Barbie doll is ready to time travel into your collection!" Let us know in the comments!

Doctor Who continues Sunday at 6.55pm on BBC One.

We were soon on familiar ground, as Whittaker's Doctor chased a mysterious, Predator-inspired alien through the streets of Sheffield. "The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one", she told the BBC. We didn't have that kind of decision making for me.

It appears they'll turn to Porcello, though, as Eovaldi suggested he's lined up for Game 4, Rob Bradford of WEEI tweets. Given that the ALDS is only a best-of-five series, Boston won't need Price to start again versus the Yankees .

The Doctor is a rare figure in popular culture, being a person devoted to solving problems with little more than curiosity and an vast scientific knowledge.

"Well, my relationship with it is I'm now a very new Whovian". I already love everything about her so much. Are you excited to see where Whittaker and Chibnall take the story next?

"So for me, once I knew I was auditioning and then playing the role, it was much more helpful to immerse myself in the actual literature that was everywhere, and obviously with the internet and things".

If you're a fan of the show already, it's got everything you'd expect.

Christopher Stevens wrote the first episode signalled a welcome return for a show that had lost its way with an unlikeable Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. They're off kilter, walking on baby legs as they discover the new aspects of themselves. The new companions were fleshed out to such an extent that a particular shock late in the episode felt genuinely tragic, a feat that is particularly impressive for a script that also had to dump enough Who-lore to pull in new viewers. She nails the character and immediately re-energises a series that was in danger of disappearing into its own black hole.
