In Issue 516 of Doctor Who Magazine, there’s an exclusive interview with 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker.
Whittaker shares her feelings about becoming the Thirteenth Doctor:
“Chris [Chibnall] wouldn’t have cast me as the Doctor because he wanted
me to repeat anything that had gone before. And I think as a fan you
don’t want to watch something that’s an imitation of something that’s
gone before. Or what would be the point of recasting?”
