Fans Are Loving Jodie Whittaker As 'Doctor Who' Following Her Premiere Episode

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

Over eight million people in the UK tuned in to watch the premiere of the latest incarnation of Doctor Who—the "best U.K. ratings for a season opener of the series in more than 10 years," according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).

Numbers that prove that the first actress ever to play the good Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, has what it takes to make the fan base happy.

Doctor Who's series 11 premiered on Sunday night with "The Woman Who Fell to Earth," and featured three companions (Yasmin—a cop, Ryan—an old school chum, and his step-grandfather Graham) whom THR is calling "a callback to the 1963 TARDIS inhabitants."
