Jodie Whittaker has officially become a doctor thanks to Sheffield Hallam University, after travelling space and time as the Thirteenth Doctor.
The 37-year-old actress, who has commanded the Tardis on Doctor Who since 2017, was awarded an honorary doctorate by the university – along with cast and crew involved in the series 11 premiere of the show.
The episode titled The Woman Who Fell To Earth was filmed in numerous places around the city.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall, who was among those receiving the doctorate, said: ‘The cast and crew of Doctor Who series 11 are thrilled to be honoured by Sheffield Hallam University this way.
‘From the moment we made the decision for the Doctor to fall out of the sky into the streets and homes of Sheffield in 2018, the residents and the city have treated us brilliantly, on screen and off.
‘Doctor Who is a massive team effort so it’s particularly special that this citation is for the whole cast and crew.’
The next series of Doctor Who isn’t expected until 2020, but Chibnall recently teased what to expect from the next batch of episodes.
Filming for the series has been underway for some time, with Jodie, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill spotted in South Africa and Gloucester in the UK.
Doctor Who is set to return on BBC One in 2020.
