'Doctor Who' Season 11 Is Revolutionary, and Not Just Because a Woman's In Charge It's the first time I've seen my disability represented on TV.
On Sunday, the premiere episode of Doctor Who's eleventh season aired on BBC America, marking the debut of Jodie Whittaker as the series' first female Doctor Who. The first episode, titled "The Woman Who Fell to Earth," features Whittaker's Doctor Who quite literally falling into a suburb of northern England, and we also meet her brand-new companions, Yaz (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole), and Graham (Bradley Walsh). I'm overwhelmed—not just because Whittaker is the first female Doctor Who, not just because I'm a permanently homesick Brit in America, but because Cole plays a man with dyspraxia, a disability I was diagnosed with aged ten and have never, ever seen portrayed on scripted television.
