In some news that’s sure to put a smile on the face of many while simultaneously having some others angrily logging into their Twitter accounts, Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor is sticking around for just a little while longer.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Whittaker confirmed that she’ll be returning as the Doctor for at least one more season.
As the Thirteenth Doctor herself enthused, “Yes, I’m doing another season. That might be a massive exclusive that I’m not supposed to say, but it’s unhelpful for me to say [I don’t know] because it would be a massive lie! I absolutely adore it. At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it’s not yet. I’m clinging on tight.”
Since taking on the role of the iconic Time Lord in 2018, Whittaker has certainly split opinion amongst fans – which seems like a given these days – and if you have an opinion on how good or bad this incarnation of the Doctor is, there’s a whole host of people ready to aggressively shut you down and label you an idiot.
Doctor Who returned on New Year’s Day to commence its currently ongoing Season 12. And we now know that Jodie Whittaker will at least be sticking around for Season 13.
