The new Doctor Who is Jodie Whittaker - here's the best reactions to #DoctorWho13

The BBC has finally revealed the 13th Doctor and it's Jodie Whittaker. The Attack the Block and Broadchurch actress was revealed in this quick tease, showing her receiving the key to the TARDIS. 

Obviously the internet's gone a little bit nuts and Jodie's anticipated the reaction stating, "I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender. Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that’s exciting about change. The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one."

One thing to note: that's not her final outfit in the video, and Jodie doesn't apparently know what it will be yet. So there's still some element of surprise left for the Christmas special when she makes her debut. 

Here's a few reactions to the news: 

In former lives Leon's been a scientist, a musician and teacher, stints that included a shoe full of liquid nitrogen, a small tour of Germany and oh GOD so much marking.
