The news was announced over the weekend that Jodie would be taking over the role, and some on Twitter began immediately rejoicing.

The Labour MP for Newcastle Central, Chi Onwurah, said she had taken note of the reaction to the airing of a trailer on Sunday that revealed the latest Doctor was Broadchurch actress Jodie Whittaker.

Ms Whittaker will play the 13 incarnation of Doctor Who.

Chi Onwurah said, "I want positive role models for women and girls, but I'm not sure if being a timelord is something attainable for most girls".

"To see an actor with Jodie's particular brand of witty, intelligent and confident femininity playing that part will have a profound effect on the way that many kids learn how to see the world, normalising emotional and intellectual investment in a female protagonist in a way that very few other things could". Books will be a combination of titles that introduce the show and the Doctor to a new audience as well as more in-depth books for "die-hard" fans. Prime Minister Theresa May has welcomed the news while former Doctor Colin Baker said he was "over the moon that at last we have a female lead".

Fans have viewed the clip revealing the Doctor's identity over 16 million times online.

"After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we're excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor".

Books and Penguin Random House Children's United Kingdom have struck a two-series deal with BBC Worldwide to continue their line of Doctor Who publishing.
