Help! iOS Overriding Methods, Task 1

This is the error that I get, can someone please let me know what's wrong?

swift_lint.swift:20:19: error: method does not override any method from its superclass override func getFullname() -> String { ~~~~~~~~ ^

classes.swift
class Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    init(firstName: String, lastName: String) {
        self.firstName = firstName
        self.lastName = lastName
    }

    func getFullName() -> String {
        return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

// Enter your code below
class Doctor: Person {

    override func getFullname() -> String {
        return "Dr. \(lastName)"
    }

}

let someDoctor = Doctor(firstName: "Sam", lastName: "Smith")

There is a typo in the method name "getFullname" vs "getFullName" (The N in name has to be capitalized) fix that and the challenge will succeed.
