“I am so blessed. This is the most amazing thing to ever happen to me,” wrote one Doctor Who fan after getting her chance to meet Jodie Whittaker.
The Thirteenth Doctor and her companions have been filming scenes for the new series in front of Park Hill Flats in Sheffield and – bundled up in a green puffer jacket – the actress found the time to pose with her local admirers.

Whittaker seemed delighted by the Doctor Who fans who came along to see the new Tardis prop and have a peek at the scenes being filmed.

Thank you so much Jodie Whittaker aka The Doctor for stepping out of her TARDIS for an amazing moment to speak to 2 of my kids. My daughter is so pleased she can dress up as the doctor & even had her hair cut the same as Jodie’s. Cannot wait for the new series ❤️ @bbcdoctorwho pic.twitter.com/YytSIdjuTY

In fact, Whittaker has met so many fans that Twitter has been flooded with happy selfies. Her facial muscles must be cramped from all that grinning…
