Exciting sneak peak at new Dr Who series! - CBBC Newsround

Jodie Whittaker and her friends get tinkering in new Doctor Who series 11

Opening up about landing the biggest role of her career to Radio Times, Jodie revealed that there's a heavy weight lifted from her shoulders thanks to the near-unanimously welcoming reaction from fans and hurling "the rule book out of the window".

The new star of Doctor Who has said she hopes young girls will be inspired by the BBC's decision to cast a woman in the title role for the first time in the show's 55-year existence.

The 11th series of Dr Who will be shown on BBC 1 this autumn. Based on Thirteen's apparent affinity for pizza and comics, it's seems that our Doctor will be significantly more fun-loving and playful than Peter Capaldi's guarded (but nonetheless loveable) Twelve-maybe Segun Akinola's new Who theme song will reflect that change?

She continued: 'In a way, though, there is liberation in that new direction: the pressure is less for me because I can only do this my way.

It was played at half time in the World Cup final when millions of people were watching the football. Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh), watch on.

The end of the video teases that "the Universe is calling"-but what does that mean?"

Whittaker, 36, was unveiled as the successor to former Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi following the Wimbledon men's final in July past year.

The Broadchurch star made her brief debut as the 13th Doctor in the final minutes of the Doctor Who Christmas special a year ago, when Capaldi regenerated.
