The annual holiday special of the BBC’s long-running sci-fi show Doctor Who screened last week, and Season 13 of the show is due later in 2021. However, it has been reported that this might be the final season for current star Jodie Whittaker.
The news comes via the UK newspaper the Mirror, which states that Whittaker intends to leave the role as the iconic Timelord after Season 13. It quotes a source from the production, who says, “It’s all very hush-hush but it is known on set that Jodie is leaving and they are gearing up for a regeneration. Her departure is top secret but at some point over the coming months the arrival of the 14th Doctor will need to be filmed.”
In response to these rumors, the BBC simply stated, “We won’t be commenting on any speculation around Jodie’s future on the show.”
