The introduction of a new Doctor Who brings plenty of excitement. And with the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor coming so close to the Comic-Con International: San Diego, Topps is offering a special Topps Now card with the first official photo of Whittaker as the Doctor for a limited time. The front features the announcement photo of Whittaker while the back and trade dress records the date of the actor’s historic appointment as the 13th star of the long running series.
On July 16th, 2017, Whittaker was announced as the new face of Doctor Who. Her first full series as the Time Lord begins in 2018, but she will reportedly appear at the end of the 2017 Christmas Special when the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi, regenerates into Whittaker.
The card is available only through 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 20. And only the number ordered will ever be printed. The Topps NOW brand offers trading cards featuring sports & entertainment’s best moments immediately after they occur. And this is definitely one of the more historic moments in the history of Doctor Who. If you are interested in owning one of these special cards, head on over to the Topps page for the card and order.
Jodie Whittaker’s tenure as the Doctor begins on December 25th, 2017.
