Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker is set to be the first ever female doctor on Doctor Who, replacing Peter Capaldi in the role.
Although Jodie has had serious acting roles, her previous work has shocked many fans.
In the 2006 movie Venus, she flashed her boobs at Peter O’Toole, who then licked her neck as she posed for a nude painting.
Whittaker was 24 at the time and O’Toole was 74, which made some viewers feel slightly uncomfortable.
In the TV show Black Mirror, she also had to act out a saucy sex scene.
Commenting on stripping naked for the camera in these roles, Jodie said: “I was fine about it. It was in the script and valid to the story.”
In 2014, the actress starred in the Sky 1 series The Smoke, which saw her getting passionate with on-screen lover Kev on a staircase.
However, Whittaker has seemingly decided to stick to a family-friendly role as she becomes the 13th doctor.
Unfortunately, the decision to cast a female actress in the role has divided hard-core fans of the show.
Fans of the show took to Twitter to air their views on the new female doctor:
You know what #Doctor Who ? I'm bloody proud to have loved you for 54 years. This is amazing

I see more people upset at people who don’t like a female #Doctor than people actually upset about a female doctor. Outrage culture again.
