Thirteenth Doctor’s Birthday

Thirteenth Doctor’s Birthday

Kings-men-

How old is she


Pusillanimate

3 today


Kings-men-

Oh yeah, I'm stupid


DeathlySnails64

She's actually 39, today you idiots!


Fireflykid1

Thought it was a leap year thing for a second


Taurenkey

What’s that in Time Lord years again?


Fireflykid1

21


mttp1990

Are you dislexic?


Fireflykid1

I don't think so, why?


Kings-men-

I knew that I was just playing along the joke


10strip

And 9 today


godisanelectricolive

As a time traveller she can be different ages depending on how you count.


Kylynara

She's 39, according to Google. Which would explain the "I'm 3 today" and "I'm 9 today" buttons she's wearing in the pics.


Bweryang

It’s kind of crazy how the badge for a three year old is like half the size of a three year old.


Kylynara

ThAt just makes it extra fun for the 3yo.


W00DERS0N

Damn, she’s good for 39. Well, my wife would be too, if it weren’t for the two parasites in her belly… My fault, really.


Herobrinedanny

"I am 3 today!" degenerates into pertwee


willzo167

*ascends


AlthricPasta

Her dress pattern is the round things. I love the round things!


onthenerdyside

What ARE the round things?


Michael-J-Foxtrot

I have no idea


I_Do_Not_Abbreviate

They are called "roundels"; in at least one of the desktop themes, they serve as [removable maintenance access panels](https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/tardis/images/9/99/TurloughOpensRoundel.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/661?cb=20140808031417) and [storage compartments](https://magazineclonerepub.blob.core.windows.net/mcepub/2912/162902/image/036f8575-0d3d-4990-bcd4-365bf0a3c31f.jpg)


Orange_Urge

Even if it’s a whoosh, that is some fine information right there. Thanks for sharing!


nachochips140807

Wait what about the sunken roundels like those of 11's tardis


Michael-J-Foxtrot

Do you not get the joke? This is an r/whoosh, I think.


Rutgerman95

Well, it's not always clear they do have a purpose. Like hidden liquor cabinets!


Michael-J-Foxtrot

That's besides the point, this dude missed out on the joke. EDIT: Wtf why so many downvotes? XD


I_Do_Not_Abbreviate

I got the "Day of the Doctor" joke (consider the uniform resource locator of the first linked image is from a Doctor Who wiki article which mentions that joke by name), I just thought it was worth sharing the actual name/purpose of them because people who have not seen the Classic series may not be aware that the subject had come up already. Sharing is caring. You do not deserve those downvotes. I suppose I should have prepended my comment with "But seriously though...". That was my mistake.


sadphonics

Oh the humanity


moominboathouse

Some of these round things open for access to random important parts of the TARDIS mechanisms! And/or emergency liquor -- which story line was that one in? Something involving Jamie, perhaps, or Sargent Benton?


DarthKittens

Yeah I know but that was good to know


dbbk

You need to get a life my dude


DrDaleks

She’s actually a human dalek


skpicky

Makes her look like a Dalek.


AlainDit

Jodie really knows how to have a fun birthday.


AmazingMrSaturn

Am I wrong for seeing her dress like a little pink dalek? 😅


DyLnd

I thought that was what it was supposed to be lol!


Pixelmite

I can't unsee this now!


LegoK9

Reminds me of the Eighth Doctor in Vampire Science: >'There are all these basic little things you still haven't told me yet. I mean – how old are you?' >He thought for a moment, counting back through the months. 'Three.' >'What?' She sat up and stared at him. 'Three what? Centuries? Three oogleplexes? What?' >He shook his head. 'No no, three years. I'm sure I overhead Sam lecturing you about regeneration.' >'Well, yeah, but –' >'It's all perfectly simple. That's how long it's been since my last fatal accident. That's when this body was born.'


Aitrus233

She's also just going into her third series too. So I like to think it's the exact same logic.


Luckywitz

Is this the doctors new outfit?


This-Moment

Yes. They started from Colin Baker's uniform, and toned it down to get here! :D


teenagejeepster

found [the dress ](https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-premium-satin-quilted-mini-smock-dress-with-puff-sleeves-in-pink/prd/21057266?affid=25888&_EAIaIQobChMI85PIz8-f8QIVyp13Ch2lfQruEAQYASABEgIOjPD_BwE&channelref=product+search&ppcadref=12029787983%7C117574734673%7Cpla-296788358618&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI85PIz8-f8QIVyp13Ch2lfQruEAQYASABEgIOjPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds)if anyone was interested


Bweryang

I did not expect it to look like something a 20 year old would wear to a club.


Euripides2930

It cost £26.40. I love her.


Grafikpapst

Jodie is such a funny person. I kinda wish they would maybe let her ad-lip some jokes in her own.


akb74

Would be safer than letting Capaldi ad lib.


TheMissingLettr

"This is a fukkin' scale model of war!"


moody4foody

I mentally read that in his voice and it made me smile


geek_of_nature

I really hope they embrace that in The Suicide Squad, the R rating and James Gunn being a fan of The Thick of It gives me hope for some Capaldi F bombs


Danny_K_2001

Nice to see she's celebrating her birthday in a style that her Doctor would absolutely do! Also nice to see minimal negativity about her today. Welcome change of pace


Huggbees24

I've always liked her, but these companions...


Pixelmite

Chris Chibnall really let his writing go....


[deleted]

Oh my god she looks soo happy. It's always nice to see actors and actresses living their domestic life.


Walui

I don't know how domestic that is, she's getting out of a filming set trailer.


pseudo__gamer

Wait thats not her trailer park?


comfort_bot_1962

Nice!


N0ba

Nice!


comfort_bot_1962

Nice!


N0ba

Nice!


BigTimeSuperhero96

Jodie is maybe the most meme worthy woman I've ever seen. Also Happy birthday to her.


comfort_bot_1962

Hope you have a great day!


comfort_bot_1962

You're Awesome!


BigTimeSuperhero96

You're fantastic, absolutely fantastic


saladlegsmemes

I have the same birthday as her. Pog


krthiak

Happy birthday


Dymarob

Holy shit! I share my birthday with Jodie Whittaker. I thought it was cool that I shared it with Ross O'Donovan, but this is awesome.


lunameow

Happy birthday!


Dymarob

Thanks. I appreciate it.


NumerousEditor

This is the greatest picture ever 😂 Happy birthday Jodie!


comfort_bot_1962

:D


comfort_bot_1962

Hope you have a great day!


ribbitman

The Doctor’s super soft birthday?!?


IcansmellyourBundt

I had to go way too far to find this comment.


jtides

u/ribbitman how’re ya now?


TtomRed

Not s’bad, n’you?


LunarisLux

Love her. Happy Birthday Jodie! One of my favorites.


comfort_bot_1962

:D


comfort_bot_1962

:)


GuestCartographer

The fact that she’s so happy makes me happy.


comfort_bot_1962

Hope you have a great day!


comfort_bot_1962

Nice!


HopeAuq101

I found out shes 39 today and just wot I thought she'd be mid 20ish


Ash__Williams

I would say she looks late 20's - early 30's, easily. One of the benefits of have a good sense of humor.


ThatTemNerd

rosalinawand.jpg


dragonard

Looks like a super-soft birthday to me


Inkling99

thats very Doctor-ish of her


The_Absent_One

happy b day


quitofilms

I enjoy her in the role She delivers lines like a boss Banksie doesn't have one of these or do I?


MattBurr86

I still think she is a really good Doctor. Shame other parts of the fandom want to put her head on a stake because they dont like the idea of her being in the role.


kaiserj1982

I like her. It's the companions I had issues with.


MattBurr86

I think they tried to do something like they did back with the 5th doctor. Having a group of companions instead of the 1 or 2 at a time.


socialpankakemix12

I just don't like how she had said she hasn't watched many episodes of doctor who because she "didn't get into it".


SenorTron

Doesn't bother me, since some great Doctors have been like that. Eccleston wasn't a fan of the show and he was amazing. Matt Smith had never really watched it before being cast, and while he apparently got into older serials afterwards the initial lack of knowledge clearly didn't hurt his performance.


socialpankakemix12

the difference being that Jodie still hasn't tried to get into the material. both of those doctors at least looked back at what the show was but she won't. Chris chibnal even goes as far as to discourage her from watching other doctor who episodes.


Critical_Sock_3897

I don’t see how that is a negative reflection on her though, as a person we all have different tastes and as an actress she doesn’t need to study to perform and tbf her performance feels very in line with Tennant’s and Smith’s so I don’t see any issue here.


ribbitman

Oh she’s a great Doctor. It’s the writing and the companions that make it unwatchable.


derf_vader

Old comforter?


struds

Somehow reminds me of Grayson Perry


OfMouthAndMind

What is she filming?! I’m curious!


krthiak

Doctor Who


Kaltva31

Spot on fashionista as usual.


The12thCrashmaster

The bottom saying 'I am 3 today!' forgot to put a one in front of the 3. Or is it 14? Or technically 15? Well, with the timeless child, YOU KNOW WHAT, I'm just gonna appreciate this photo for what it is. Happy Birthday Jodie Whittaker!


Disappointment2002

There's a little badge next to it that says 9 indicating she's actually turned 39 lol


The12thCrashmaster

Wow, I can't believe i missed that. Thanks for the heads up. 😂👍


Scrambled_59

This has similar energy to that one John Lennon picture where he’s dressed as a cowboy


moody4foody

For some reason her dress reminds me of a bed comforter my mom had in the 90s lol. Happy birthday Doctor!


bluebirdgm

That must be the most remarkable version of the sonic screwdriver ever generated.


PacificPeace

She looks so beautiful specially in pink.


Ash__Williams

Do you see this?! This is the proof Jodie can be charismatic and funny. Why didn't we see anything of this in the last 2 series, Goddamn it?!


MattBurr86

The Rosa Parks episode should have, and would have been 100% better as a pure historical episode.


sadphonics

Oh sure blame the actor on the script


Ash__Williams

My comment is a critic to Chibnall, not to Jodie.


Cyrus-Lion

That whole outfit makes me severely uncomfortable


Bennyboii7

Any videos of this?


krthiak

Mandir Gill’s Instagram


LantoniBlue

Warms my heart Not inflames, but warms


Here_for_tea_

Love it.


waitItsQuestionTime

Such a queen


danishvz

I love her!


televisionscreen250k

she kinda looks like something you’d see on Cbeebies Actually, a doctor who show for toddlers would be kinda funny


AnyImpression6

That exists, it's called series 11 and 12.


MrSir2002

I dont like this it makes me feel uneasy


dalek943

I don't know if people here are being sincere or mocking her. Not her biggest fan, but she doesn't deserve this


lunameow

It's sincere. She gets "childlike" excited about her birthday, she's mentioned it in interviews before. She'll usually do a completely over-the-top outfit like this. [Here's](https://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/happy-birthday-jodie-whittaker-2020-94061.htm) the one from two years ago (the article is last year, but they used the same picture as 2019).


Future-Turtle

Most of what I’ve seen has been enjoying it pretty sincerely. There are always going to be a couple dicks skulking about.


lionsbane1764

ew ​ I don't mean to kink shame but ew


Demonwith4soul117

Happy bday!!! Congrats on killing Dr who


Critical_Sock_3897

Even putting aside the lunacy of blaming an actor, this is hardly the first time fans have kicked back on new who. People hated moffat. A good potion of classic era fans (myself included to a certain degree) hated RTD’s era. People hated McCoy’s run either because it was too ‘light entertainment’ or because it was too ‘dark and edgy’. The ‘DW is dead’ thing is such a ridiculous overreaction and besides if something has fans it clearly had value regardless of your own opinion (like me and the rtd era).


dash_ketchup

Happy bday!!! Congrats on killing it in Dr who. There i fixed it for you, she's great, It's the writing that is sub par, but the writing is not her fault.

saenz95

Weird becaus when Peter Capaldi first was presented as the doctor on the Day of the doctor I believe… it says “All twelve doctors are here, No sir, all thirtheen” and then you see Capaldi’s Eyes. We know that the “war doctor” was indeed The Doctor, but he forgets what he’s done for gallifrey and how he saved them. So technically, she would be the fourtheen doctor? 14. And lets not start with tennants double regeneration

Maxeemtoons

Watching with my SO and Jodie is her favorite doctor! Loving your stuff JW, keep up the great work DW team!


jdiamond31

Happy birthday to the half the reason Doctor who is dead to me!


Cakeboy327

Don’t be a dick, take it up with chibnall


jdiamond31

I said half the problem. Capaldi has shit writing but loved the role so much he made it good.


just_bob

That should be her outfit for the rest of her tenure
