We Asked Jodie Whittaker What She Wants Her Legacy as the Doctor to Be

The UK was kind enough to let us borrow new Doctor Jodie Whittaker for a whirlwind U.S. tour on the show’s big premiere weekend. It also just happened to coincide with New York Comic Con which meant io9 had the opportunity to ask Whittaker some burning questions!


I actually spoke with Whittaker, new showrunner Chris Chibnall, and executive producer Matt Strevens at the convention this past weekend in New York and we’ll have more with them later on. For now, enjoy Whittaker’s enthusiastic and genuine responses to me throwing a few big questions her way.

Keep checking io9 for more from this year’s New York Comic Con—and head to our new Instagram for lots of fun cosplay from the show: @io9dotcom.

Maybe it’s me, but it feels a bit premature to ask that.  Like it’s something you reflect on as you near the end of your run, not right at the start.  Like I said, maybe it’s me.
