I've temporarily blocked this page because several editors have been changing the date of birth without providing a new source confirming that new date. Please read Tardis:Valid sources and provide here a valid source for the June 17th date. Once that happens, I will unlock the page. Shambala108 19:52, June 3, 2018 (UTC)

After some digging I found this tweet in reply to a Happy Birthday tweet from the official Doctor Who account. It links an interview, the relevant part being this:

A lot of this is on my Wikipedia page but my birthday is wrong on it. It’s June 17, same day as Arthur Darvill (he played Reverend Paul Coates in Broadchurch) and we are exactly the same age. We were on set at Broadchurch and he was in the guardian birthday’s list and I was like, ‘I can’t believe it! Where am I?'Jodie Whittaker
She even addresses the source on the page currently! I'm just glad its cleared up now. --Borisashton 20:01, June 3, 2018 (UTC)

Birth date Edit

Per our policies, unsourced birth and death dates get removed from pages. I've removed the birth date here because apparently the year is not confirmed. If/when a source can be found, it can be re-added. I place here for convenience the info that I removed.

Cool cool. I'm sure a source will turn up eventually :) Should she also be removed from the 17 June page for now as well? Toqgers
Good question, but for now I'll say no because for some reason we let those pages exist without sourcing. Shambala108 00:39, December 17, 2018 (UTC)
Gotcha! Well they certainly look cleaner that way haha. Should I revert removing her from 1982 page then, or best to keep her off since that *is* the part in question, anyways? Toqgers
