Thereโ€™s a great article in The Hollywood Reporter of actress Jodie Whittaker taking on the role.  Hereโ€™s a snippet:
THR:
With your casting, you're helping reframe what identity means to the show. To that end, how much of a feminist icon do you think this character will become now?
JODIE WHITTAKER: 
It's about being an icon for everyone, which is what the Doctor has always been. Doctor Who has always had a fanbase that is very diverse, with male and female fans of all ages. For me it's about saying, "Listen, there are 12-year-old boys watching this show, who have women in their life that they probably look up to; it isn't weird to look up to women. You probably look up to your mom or your aunt or your grandmom!"
