The Broadchurch star will take over from Peter Capaldi in this year’s Christmas special.

The decision led to a clash between former Doctors Peter Davison and Colin Baker last Thursday.
Davison, 66, who played the fifth Doctor from 1981 to 1984, said the choice of a woman will mean the ‘loss of a role model for boys’.
But Baker, 74, who played the sixth Doctor, pointed out that the character has been male since the programme began in 1963, saying: ‘They’ve had 50 years of having a role model. So sorry Peter, you’re talking rubbish there - absolute rubbish.’
