So, remember last year when my daughter was all over the internet for screaming “THE NEW DOCTOR IS A GIRL!” during Jodie Whittaker’s reveal? And remember how any time anyone even mentions Doctor Who since that video seems to pop up? Well, they finally got a chance to meet, thanks to BBC America! You can watch a small portion of the call here (Jodie was incredibly generous with her time and spoke with Wednesday a lot longer than I anticipated). I love everyone who made this happen for my kid, who has literally never been this shy with anyone before.
Jodie is The Doctor; she absolutely embodied Eleven’s quote, “You know, nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.” She made my daughter feel important and valued and I am ridiculously grateful. This is a moment Wednesday will never, ever forget.
