DOCTOR Who star JODIE WHITTAKER hopes her casting as the first female Time Lord will pave the way for a woman 007.

Ahead of her debut in the rote on BBC1 on October 7, Jodie, below, said: "If this isn't the start of something becoming more normal -to see women leading shows then it's really depressing.

"I just think now is the time to show children -- both boys and girls-your role models and your heroes on the screen don't all look the same."

And discussing the nine-month shoot in Wales, she said: "We've been in a bubble in Cardiff. You're just making it for yourself and you don't really know what's going on on the outside.

"No one's approached me about being The Doctor.

"You come to work and you work these long hours and you go home."

Meanwhile, showrunner CHRIS CHIBNALL has defended the new look of the sonic screwdriver, after its design was revealed in artwork for the show and quickly drew comparisons to a sex toy.

He said: "Every new Doctor gets their own sonic screwdriver.

"It would be terrible for her not to have her own one.

"They all look very different."

This one certainly does.
