Plenty talked about Jodie Whittaker, and by extension the Doctor's brand-new Yorkshire accent. Yes! More weird accents on TV please.

Literally never watched an episode of #DoctorWho before. Watching in now cos Im quite excited by the prospect of a Yorkshire accented woman playing such a legendary role.

Go Jodie! ??

Much of the "controversy" around casting the first female Doctor Who dissipated as fans just enjoyed the show, which is exactly as it should be.

That was fantastic. #doctorwho

After months and months of "the Doctor should only be a man" rubbish from naysayers – their incessant moaning and negativity was instantly proven to be irrelevant nonsense. Jodie nailed the character within seconds.

She IS the Doctor. 100% ?

My show's back! My Doctor's back! And I couldn't be happier! ??#JodieWhittaker IS #DoctorWho! If that wasn't obvious before, it is now (whether you like it or not)! Series 11 is going to be an absolute blast! I'm already anxious for next week's adventure!
