Jodie Whittaker to host CBeebies Bedtime Stories

Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker will read the story of an intrepid girl on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.

Whittaker will read Ada Twist, Scientist – the third in a series of books written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts.

Beaty considers Whittaker’s narration of her book, “the best of all things!”

Ada Twist, Scientist is a book about a girl who doesn’t let a little trouble get in the way of scientific discovery. Sounds a lot like a certain Time Lord we all know.

“I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as I did,” said the Jodie Whittaker, calling the experience “an honour”.

Previous actors to play the Doctor have read CBeebies Bedtime Stories ‒ David Tennant, in 2009, and Christopher Eccleston in 2010.

Jodie Whittaker will appear on CBeebies Bedtime Stories  on Friday, December 7 at 6:50 p.m. on the CBeebies BBC channel.
