It’s official! We have a new Doctor! And she’s a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.
But we won’t see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it’ll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we’re gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. “Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets,” anyone?
How do you feel about Whittaker’s impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

For this week’s Extra, we haven’t watched anything. Instead, we’ve been reading! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we talk about the new(ish) line of Doctor Who comics from Titan Comics. We’ve all read the first five issues of the 10th and 11th Doctors’ series, and some of us have read even farther. We discuss what it’s like to see the Doctor in 2D form and, even more excitingly, we cover the new companions he meets in the pages of these delightful books!
Have you read the Titan comics yet? If so, let us know what you think in the comments! And whether you’ve read them or not, you’re welcome to enter our giveaway–just leave a comment on our giveaway post!
