New 'Doctor Who' Is a Smash Hit in the Ratings

'Doctor Who' continues on Sunday at 6.55pm on BBC One.

Well, you'd better get used to it, lads, because Ms Whittaker is here now and she's absolutely wonderful. Series 11 has been a long time coming, and it's about time.

What did you think of the new Doctor Who premiere?

And, for the first time in the show's 55 year history, Doctor Who - a super-smart force of nature who can change appearance (and gender) by regenerating when near death - will be a woman.

'I mean what a thing, for the rest of my life, for that to be me.

While there wasn't a surprise phone call or shock cameo in this instalment, we did manage to see the Doctor get to work building her Tardis - or Tardis-esque contraption - completely from scratch, along with her sonic screwdriver.

Most importantly for the children in the audience, we were able to communicate both the excitement of scientific research, and the feasibility of becoming a professional scientist regardless of your background. Fans of the reboot have thus far been robbed of this experience, and I hope that we can expect more ludicrous finales as the weeks roll by. It was very much, I want to be able to do this and I want to be able to show you I can do it.

But Yasmin doesn't seem convinced by their situation, or their new ally, as she says ominously: 'We're about to die'. Personally, I'd rather have seen all four of them go off on an adventure with the Doctor but sadly, it was not to be... or was it?

Her Thirteenth Doctor is now available for order from Mattel and other outlets, for delivery by December 3, in plenty of time for the holidays.

How did you decide what kind of Doctor you were going to be? . She nails the character and immediately re-energises a series that was in danger of disappearing into its own black hole.

"Good to hear a northern accent that isn't gratuitous or for comic effect", posted one appreciative viewer on Twitter. It will screen on the ABC on Monday nights at 5.55pm.
