It’s not surprising that after the huge reveal last weekend of the thirteenth Doctor, there has been a virtual explosion of wonderful Doctor Who fan art online in response.
While the decision to cast a woman in the lead role may be controversial in some quarters, there’s no doubt that there are plenty of people happy to welcome Jodie Whittaker to the Doctor Who family.
I love the Whovian fan art community, it always seems so warm and welcoming and at times like this, I really wish I could draw. Instead, I will just admire everyone else’s amazing work.
Fans wasted no time, this one was up less than an hour after the announcement!

Really lovin’ the pose. I hope Doctor 13 will be an action girl! Nothing too crazy, just I like my Doctor’s to be runners 😀
Love this one based off of a Tweet made by Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor) after the announcement. He’s riffing off one of his in-character lines from the show when he regenerated.
