From Verity to Jodie: The Women of ‘Doctor Who’

Only weeks away from Jodie Whittaker taking over the role of the Doctor, this panel will discuss how women have contributed to the Doctor Who universe, from first producer Verity Lambert and theme-tune pioneer Delia Derbyshire to new series director Rachel Talalay.

Doctor Who took on an interesting narrative component to account for actors leaving the show: regeneration. This means our beloved Time Lord every once and a while goes through a physiological transformation, with a distinct new personality.

The concept of a female Doctor has been mentioned as far back as 1981, with Jodie Whittaker finally taking the role.
