Jodie Whittaker makes her first appearance as 'Doctor Who'

Dr. Who Jodie Whittaker

Under most circumstances, the Doctor Who Christmas Special is exactly as its title suggests: a bit of timey wimey fun for the holidays that puts everyone's favorite Time Lord front and center for a little family entertainment.

Ready for the Doctor Who 2017 Christmas Special? Whittaker has also appeared in the likes of Attack the Block and Black Mirror.

But how will Whittaker be introduced to the world as the Thirteenth Doctor?

Taking place on the death-strewn battlefields of war and the ethereal realms of space and time, "Twice Upon A Time" is the final adventure of Capaldi's Doctor Who tenure.

The good news is that it's very easy to watch Doctor Who in the UK.

Capaldi, who has had the role since 2013, regenerated at the end of the episode to become Whittaker's character.

In its first twenty-six years, only one episode of Doctor Who fell on Christmas Day.

Whitaker's first series will air next year, where she will be joined by her writer from the hit thriller Broadchurch, Chris Chibnall, as the new showrunner.

"Twice Upon a Time" delivers a fairly potent story about memory and nostalgia, one that understands the emotional attachment there is to the Doctor in all of its incarnations and how hard it can be to let go of any one of them.

"It's more than an honour to play the Doctor", she added.

Whether or not Whittaker does is yet to be seen.

The highly anticipated moment happened right at the very end of the Christmas episode Twice Upon A Time as Peter Capaldi bowed out of the series, and Jodie stepped in as the new regeneration.
