Firstly, the actor pointed out the obvious, which is that whenever a new Doctor's chosen, there's always some sort of backlash.

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant has backed Jodie Whittaker being cast as the new and first female Doctor. He recalled seeing certain messages for his casting, such as, "Who's the weasely looking guy?"

He said: "Do you know, whenever the Doctor changes there's a backlash, because that's a character people love".

When Whittaker finally makes her debut as the 13th Doctor, Tennant believes that all the social media noise about her "will be irrelevant nearly immediately".

Trust Me's overnight ratings were higher than those for the final episode of the latest series of Doctor Who.

Mellor added that "Whittaker is a rare talent when it comes to conveying conflicted emotion" but that Trust Me's script has not allowed her to show "what she can do".

He added: "The Doctor can be whatever he needs to be". I resign from the internet.' There was a lot of that.

Gabriel Tate wrote in The Times: "The Tardis is in safe hands: if the Doctor-in-waiting, Jodie Whittaker, can sell Trust Me, beating the Daleks will be a doddle". "And that happens every time, and that's because it's a show that has a lot on enthusiastic followers".

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Christmas Day.

David, who starred alongside Jodie in ITV's "Broadchurch", says the "Doctor Who" fans can get defensive about the character because they love the show so much.

"That is wonderful", laughs Whittaker, as she sees cosplayers wearing the coat with hoodie that she wore in the reveal video.
