Jodie Whittaker, who has become the first female artiste to be cast as lead on "Doctor Who", said she felt "incredibly emotional" when she learnt that she had bagged the coveted role.

"It was incredibly emotional because my entire life, as a child, all I ever wanted to be was be an actor, and I wanted to do it because I wanted to play pretend, and that is the ultimate.
