Much has been made over the fact that Jodie Whittaker will be the first woman to be at the front of the cast of Doctor Who. But my hope is that Whittaker will be the longest serving Doctor since Tom Baker (1974-1981). There have been twelve Doctors in the history of the show, with Whittaker being the thirteenth. Only Jon Pertwee (five seasons, 1970-1974) and Tom Baker (seven seasons) were the Doctor for more than three seasons. It is time that the series have a long running Doctor again, and Whittaker is a good person to do it. Of course, it will depend on her performance, the writing, and many other factors for it to happen. But I wish Jodie Whittaker a long and successful run as the thirteenth Doctor on Doctor Who.
