  • Five minutes into the new Doctor's first season and I've forgotten Jodie Whittaker hasn't been in the role for years already. She owns

When you compare those numbers to previous Doctor Who seasons, and other shows on BBC, it's easy to see that this new installment is on pace for an unstoppable performance. You can check out both clips below!

The highly anticipated and ridiculously controversial 11th season of Doctor Who has landed, and it's great. After all, for the first time in the show's 55-year history, The Doctor, an alien who every so often "regenerates" into a new form, was played by a woman.

The Woman Who Fell To Earth, a new episode of the BBC science fiction drama, has just aired in the United Kingdom, introducing audiences to Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, a role she claimed in July past year amid increasing calls for it to go to a woman.

The Thirteenth Doctor is, of course, is of course depicted as she appears on the hit BBC sci-fi adventure, with a rainbow-striped T-shirt, suspenders, cropped trousers, hooded trench coat and lace-up (albeit plastic) boots, looking as if she just stepped out of the TARDIS. I assume much of this was terrifying for children, and thank goodness for that! To be quite honest though, for me the episode was very much just an episode of Doctor Who.

Real Madrid playmaker Isco and Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante have also been revealed as nominees for France Football's prize. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Paris on Monday December 3 , with television coverage from 20:45 CET.

From the moment she crashes through the roof of a train, still dressed in predecessor Peter Capaldi's ill-fitting clothes, to the scene near the end where she chooses her own distinctive costume of long coat, rainbow top, braces and culottes (I'm glad I have daughters to tell me what these things are called), she owns the role.

The Doctor's arch enemy The Master has most recently been brought to life as Missy, in a BAFTA-nominated performance by Michelle Gomez that easily ranks as my favourite incarnation of the evil Time Lord. A friendly and warm nurse who's a little bit cheeky, but has some serious steel when it counts, she loves her second husband Graham (Bradley Walsh) and grandson Ryan (Tosin Cole).

The figure is also almost double the number of people who tuned in to see the first episode of the last series in 2017.

Well, you'd better get used to it, lads, because Ms Whittaker is here now and she's absolutely wonderful. But, hey, Whittaker's Doctor is a fine start.
