Regenerated : Discussing the New Doctor Who

Viewers of the world-renowned BBC Sci-Fi thrill-ride Doctor Who are quite accustomed to the face of the franchise changing at regular intervals. Concurrently, the eleventh series was awash in change, with the Thirteenth Doctor, portrayed by Jodie Whittaker, being the first female to tackle the role, and a new creative team taking over the story-telling duties for the series’ adventures in space and time. This panel will delve into developments of the eleventh series, discuss Whittaker’s trailblazing take on the Gallifreyan guru, and explore her place in the pantheon of actors assaying the role.

Presenters: Renee Cesaro, Melissa Layton, Christina Peck, Michael Sepulveda, Shane Hunt

Where and when: North 230, 3-4pm

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
