Over 16 million people have watched the Jodie Whittaker reveal

Considering we didn’t have a glitzy reveal show, the announcement of the new Doctor Who has travelled very far, and very wide. Revealed on Sunday afternoon in the midst of the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage, the short snippet unveiling Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor has now been watched over 16 million times, the BBC has revealed.

In a sign of the times, the majority of those views have come online. 9.8 million have watched the video on the BBC’s Facebook channel, with a further 2.5 million on Twitter. Then there’s the those who watched on BBC One, and the additional teaser trailer that screened the Friday before the announcement notched up 4.8 million views online.

Jodie Whittaker will become the Doctor on Christmas Day, and is set to film her regeneration scene shortly.
