Jodie Whittaker, left, and Tosin Cole attend the "Doctor Who" panel on day one of Comic-Con International in San Diego. "She just walked into the room and she was the Doctor".
The new Doctor points out how everything is new to her:new faces (including her own), new places, new times to travel through.
Says Whittaker, "what you do notice is that sometimes within episodes, other people's response is different, because they're speaking to a woman".
"The thing about this role, which is why it is so incredible for any actor to play the role, is that essentially gender is irrelevant, and that's completely liberating", Whittaker said. "This year is the flawless jumping on point for that person in your life who has never watched Doctor Who", he said. Cole describes her as "young, bubbly and amusing", Gill calls her "humorous, witty and energetic", Chibnall says "really flippin' awesome", and Strevens calls her "effervescent and kick-ass".

She added: "No-one is going to suggest the role [Doctor Who] is paid less because you're a woman, and they didn't". For him, it was the acceptance of some hardened crew members on the Doctor Who set in Cardiff, Wales, where many craftsmen have worked on Doctor Who since its revival in 2005, that best indicated they had maintained the intangible spirit of the series. We now know how many episodes of the new season we're getting and whether one will have a distinctly festive feel to it. But with season 11, Yasmin (Gill), Ryan (Cole), and Graham (Bradley Walsh) will be referred to as "friends", a change in the nomenclature that Chibnall felt was due. Rather, these are the Doctor's 'friends'. So if I asked really, really nicely. This all indicates a more reciprocal, mutual relationship than the more old-fashioned descriptors "assistants" and 'companions'.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall discussed the new Sonic Screwdriver briefly, without giving too much away, as the newest season is shrouded in mystery. Admitting it was a bit freaky to do press for a character before she played that person, it felt like a moment of truth being on the set of Capaldi's version of the TARDIS.
