THERE’S been a lot of hype about the new Doctor Who being a female for the very first time.

I decided to watch Jodie Whittaker make her debut on Sunday night, and I must admit I wasn’t disappointed.

I felt thoroughly entertained – let’s face it the series did need sprucing up.

I thought at times Jodie sounded a bit like Helen Skelton from Countryfile. Well done BBC.
