Jodie Whittaker has been great in Doctor Who. Her arrival in 2017 as the first female Doctor reinvigorated a series that looked in serious danger of being put on ice for a few years, or worse, cancelled altogether.

Whittaker immediately made the role her own.

Ratings shot up and have remained well above the perilous low they hit during Peter Capaldi’s tenure.
