Yesterday the internet rightly celebrated as it was announced that Jodie Whittaker would become the first woman to take on the role of The Doctor.

Finally, a victory in the culture wars for the good guys!

But here's the thing: Whittaker isn't actually the first woman to play the iconic role.

Way back in 1999, when Doctor Who was in its wilderness years, the show was revived for a charity special.

Written by a bloke called Steven Moffat (whatever happened to him?

), the episode initially starred Rowan Atkinson as the titular character, Julia Sawalha as his companion Emma and Jonathan Pryce as The Master.
