Female Doctor is '˜genius' says Jenna
Former Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman has said having a woman take over the Tardis is 'genius'.
Jodie Whittaker will replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who, making her the 13th reincarnation of the much-loved character and the first female Time Lord.
Former Arnold School head girl Coleman, 31 - who starred as The Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald from 2012 to 2015 - said: “I love it. I think it is genius.”
Coleman said the Broadchurch actress is “brilliant” and added that she “can’t wait to hear her speak” in character.
