Martin here with all of Monday's best stories.

:00:00.:00:00.

How Spike the stag beetle is changing the art world.

:00:00.:00:11.

And the cows trumping climate change.

:00:12.:00:21.

Massive news for Whovians - a new Doctor has been revealed.

:00:22.:00:25.

Jodie Whittaker will be the 13th Time Lord.

:00:26.:00:28.

She's the first woman to play the character in the show's history,

:00:29.:00:31.

and will start when the Doctor regenerates in the

:00:32.:00:33.

We've been asking what you think about it.

:00:34.:00:41.

I was really happy because I have heard that it has just been male

:00:42.:00:53.

since it started. It is going to go very good, because I know females

:00:54.:01:00.

can do the same thing as males. I don't think the woman will be better

:01:01.:01:03.

than the man because men are better at acting. I'd like to see her

:01:04.:01:11.

change the spaceship sort looks more up-to-date and she could change the

:01:12.:01:12.

colour. But now there's a huge row

:01:13.:01:13.

about the way they've been marked. Two tests with the same question

:01:14.:01:20.

and the same answer, but one has been marked right

:01:21.:01:27.

and the other is wrong. That was a real question in a recent

:01:28.:01:32.

Sats test for 10 to 11-year-olds, but it's the way these questions

:01:33.:01:35.

have been marked that's got a lot So we've got some examples right

:01:36.:01:38.

here, and we want these guys to see if they can tell what's right

:01:39.:01:44.

and what's wrong. I think it's right because

:01:45.:01:50.

they did put the letters Well, I think the commas

:01:51.:01:53.

are inserted in the right place So should that matter,

:01:54.:02:04.

the way it goes? No, because the student knows how

:02:05.:02:09.

to do it, but they're just being told off for not

:02:10.:02:12.

doing it right. Although children answered the right

:02:13.:02:15.

question, some failed to get a mark because of the shape

:02:16.:02:20.

of their semicolon and commas. Others got marked down for not

:02:21.:02:24.

putting their answer inside a box, even though it didn't tell

:02:25.:02:26.

you you would get marked down I think it's unfair

:02:27.:02:29.

because the person who has written the comma like that could have got

:02:30.:02:38.

99, which is one mark I think this is the wrong

:02:39.:02:41.

way to test people. They should have told them then

:02:42.:02:47.

they could have known If you can see a semicolon,

:02:48.:02:50.

then you can see a semicolon. It tells you to put it

:02:51.:02:55.

in the right place, which is what these people have

:02:56.:02:58.

done, but they've still lost the mark even though they've done

:02:59.:03:00.

the question as it said. Some teachers have spoken

:03:01.:03:06.

out on social media, saying they weren't told

:03:07.:03:09.

about the marking rules. So we got in touch with the people

:03:10.:03:13.

who come up with the test, as well as the Department for

:03:14.:03:17.

Education. They're the people in Government

:03:18.:03:18.

in charge of schools. The Government told Newsround

:03:19.:03:20.

that they wanted to make sure children were using and forming

:03:21.:03:23.

punctuation correctly and had given advice to people marking it

:03:24.:03:30.

to make sure it was fair. And Pearson, the company in charge

:03:31.:03:32.

of marking your tests, told us that mistakes in marking

:03:33.:03:35.

are rare but they want teachers who are worried to get in touch

:03:36.:03:38.

so they can look into it. The Humber Bridge and a block

:03:39.:03:43.

of public toilets in Hull have both They have been honoured

:03:44.:03:46.

with a listed status, alongside seven other places

:03:47.:03:49.

in the city, to celebrate Hull during its year

:03:50.:03:51.

as the UK City of Culture. But what exactly does
