On Monday April 20, the BBC will launch a special edition of its education service Bitesize Daily for children who are out of school due the Covid-19 pandemic.
The service will feature an array of famous tutors, including Jodie Whittaker, whose Doctor met renowned scientists Ada Lovelace, Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison as well as literary greats Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and John Polidori in the most recent Doctor Who Series 12. Jodie Whittaker’s thirteenth Doctor also met activist Rosa Parks and King James I of England in Doctor Who Series 11.
Doctor Who is already featured in a Bitesize lesson in The Doctor Who Guide to Earth History.
Bitesize will offer daily lessons in all core subjects, tailored for every age group from Year 1 to Year 10. The lessons will be available via television, Red Button and online.
Along with Whittaker’s lessons, Brian Cox will explain the mysteries of the universe, One Direction singer Liam Payne will teach reading skills and football star Sergio Aguero will teach Spanish.
There is no information on the subject Jodie Whittaker will teach or whether she will teach in costume as the Doctor. We look forward to finding out once her lessons go live.
