Everyone’s been buzzing since the reveal of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor on Doctor Who. While debates occurred about whether she’s fit for the job, everyone believed it was time for a change. One former Doctor was extremely excited for the new journey.

Nothing But Positivity

During New York Comic Con, David Tennant was doing the media rounds for Good Omens. While talking to EW Morning Live, he was asked if he managed to watch Whittaker in action. Fortunately, he did, and he had a lot to say about the performance.

“It’s very exciting. It’s very exciting as a fan, you know, as someone who grew up watching Doctor Who, it’s very exciting whenever there’s a kind of rebirth of the show, it’s just an exciting moment anyway,” he said.

Supporting A Friend

Tennant and Whittaker have a long working history together. They first worked together on the 2009 film St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold. In 2013, they became co-stars in the British crime drama Broadchurch. Watching his old co-star on the screen filled Tennant with joy.

“Because Jodie’s a friend and because Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch creator) who now runs the show is a friend, it was exciting on so many levels. But five minutes in, I was just watching it as a fan again, and I’d forgotten that I knew them, and that they were my mates,” he said.

The Doctor Will See You Now

The first episode in the Whittaker era earned over 8 million viewers overnight. This makes it the most watched Doctor Who episode overnight since 2008’s “Partners in Crime.” That particular show featured Tennant as the Doctor.

This ten-episode season will conclude on Christmas. This season is the first to air on Sunday nights instead of Saturdays.
