Jodie Whittaker has said that she hasn’t ventured onto social media since it was announced she was the new Doctor.
“This will be a blessing and curse,” she said during an interview on BBC 6 Music. “I’ve missed a lot of the fun stuff and probably the bad stuff because I’m not on any type of social media and never have been.
“So if I get sent something it’s a mate screen-grabbing it and sending it to me and they obviously edit… actually some of them don’t! But there’s an amazing video of a young girl watching [the announcement] and finding out that it’s being played by a girl. Seeing things like that is really exciting.
“But I need to start going on Twitter search [to see if] anyone has tweeted about me,” she laughed.
