** Not to be overlooked, ''lots'' of actors from the new and classic series immediately took to Twitter to express their whole-hearted endorsement of Whittaker, with comments ranging from Billie Piper's simple "YES!", to Colin Baker's pride that his own daughters will now have a female Doctor to admire.

Other actos like Creator/SylvesterMcCoy, Creator/KarenGillan, Creator/ArthurDarvill, Creator/FreemaAgyeman, Creator/AlexKingston, Creator/JohnBarrowman, Pearl Mackie, and Creator/MarkGatiss all welcomed Whittaker to the ''Doctor Who'' family.

** The fact that a show once best-known for its cheesy bubble-wrap space monsters can now ''get'' the likes of Creator/JohnHurt, Creator/DerekJacobi, or Creator/TimothyDalton to portray its greatest hero and most dreaded villains as a BigNameCameo.

And not even as a BigNameCameo.promotional StuntCasting gimmick, but as an unadvertised ''surprise'' for the fans!

* The fact that no British holiday season would feel complete anymore without the show's annual ChristmasEpisode, which inevitably warms viewers' hearts and caps off family gatherings on a high note, deserves special props. Eat your heart out, ''Series/CallTheMidwife''!

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-_bSdWEYK8 The Teaser]] deserves special mention: The new Doctor being hidden in a hoodie as we see them walk into the woods, before holding out the TARDIS key and the TARDIS being heard materializing before taking off their hoodie to reveal Jodie as the new Doctor, who [[AndTheAdventureContinues then goes onto her next adventure]].

* In 2017, after years of fan grumbling about the Doctor always being cast as a white man and it being long past time that the role was opened to more diverse casting, we finally got our wish as Creator/JodieWhittaker became the Thirteenth Doctor.

** The War Doctor's regeneration was only shown half-completed. We didn't see his full transition into Nine because Christopher Eccleston declined to return for the 50th and Steven Moffat wanted to respect his decision, on the grounds that making it appear that an actor was in something they did not want to be in without their consent would be unethical. But some fan decided to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eO3veBHQ7aQ extend the regeneration into a complete version...]] With [[StealthPun fantastic]] results.

* In 2016, the BBC commissioned an ''entire'' lost story to be reconstructed in animation. Which story? Why "The Power of the Daleks" the first story of the Second Doctor era! OK, so it was limited animation but you have to give them credit for doing it in black and white and color!
