The 13th Time Lord will be a woman.
Jodie Whittaker will be the next iteration of Doctor Who, according to an announcement Sunday.
The new doctor’s identity was revealed during a trailer broadcast at the end of the Wimbledon men’s singles final.
Never miss a local story.
Alex Kingston, who plays “River Song” on the popular BBC SciFi drama, was at Supercon in Raleigh when the news broke.
“Have they just announced it?” she asked the audience during her appearance. “Jodie Whittaker? Oh my goodness.”
Whittaker, 35, will make her debut on the show when the doctor returns in a Christmas-day special.
