Doctor Who's 13th Doctor will be played by a woman, and following the announcement last Sunday afternoon, the Internet, predictably, exploded. The news was initially shared by BBC via a special promo video that aired after the men's singles finals at the Wimbledon Championship. Actress Jodie Whittaker will take on the iconic role as the first woman to play the title role since the series first began back in 1963. 

Whittaker told BBC, “It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.” But, as you can imagine, many men are simply having a difficult time digesting the big news. Don't fret!-- the hilarious women (and even some men!) of Twitter can handle themselves just fine..

We have no doubt in our minds that she will not only nail this role, but also open some more doors for actresses in the future. Huge congrats to Whittaker!
