DOCTOR WHO – BBC isn’t Commenting on Jodie Whittaker Rumors


That latest rumors say that Jodie Whitaker is leaving Doctor Who, and up to this point, via EW, the BBC has declined to comment. Time will tell if the rumors prove to be true, but its not really a stretch to imagine the actress would be interested in moving on to new rolls after portraying the Doctor for 3 seasons.

Via The Mirror:

Jodie Whittaker is quitting at the end of the next Doctor Who series, when she will regenerate into the 14th Time Lord.

The 38-year-old has told bosses she intends to stick to the traditional rule of leaving after three stints in the TARDIS, like the majority of her predecessors.

One insider said: “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. It’s very exciting.”

Insiders claim Whittaker is keen to take on other roles.

The source said she will follow co-stars Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole out of the door later this year, but ­showrunner Chris Chibnall is to remain.
