Jodie is one of the UK's most acclaimed actresses who was unveiled as the 13th Dr Who in 2017. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring and super-smart actress and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to her evening of programming. She graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2005 with a gold medal in Acting. Since then she has worked continually in Film, Television and Theatre. Her TV credits include the critically acclaimed ITV drama Broadchurch (for which she was nominated for Best Actress for the RTS Television Awards), Emmy award-winning Black Mirror, Sky 1’s The Smoke, BBC’s Cranford, in which she starred opposite Judi Dench and Imelda Staunton, The Night Watch (BBC), The Accused (BBC), and Tess of the D'Urbervilles (BBC).
A listener to BBC Radio 6 Music, she personally asked to join Shaun Keaveny for her first broadcast interview after being announced as the new Dr. Jodie said "It feels completely overwhelming; as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you’re told you can and can’t be. It feels incredible".
