Jodie Whittaker WON’T quit Doctor Who as rumoured exit blasted as 'total nonsense' by series 13 insiders
JODIE Whittaker WON’T quit Doctor Who as her rumoured exit is blasted as 'total nonsense' by series 13 insiders.
Earlier this month it was claimed the 38-year-old actress would be leaving her role as the Time Lord at the end of the next series.
The Mirror reported that Jodie was keen to take on new roles and producers were preparing for the next regeneration.
Since then, rumours have also started to circulate that show boss Chris Chibnall is also planning to leave the show after series 13.
However, both rumours have been blasted by show insiders, who told RadioTimes.com: "This is all total nonsense.
"This has originated and spread through the online rumour mill.”
The speculation apparently originated on a popular Doctor Who message board before moving to social media.
An insider previously told The Mirror of Jodie's rumoured exit: "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."
Jodie is currently in the middle of filming series 13 with Chris at the helm.
Jodie became the first female star to take on the role of the famous character back in 2017.
Chris took over as show runner at the same time and has faced rumours of him quitting on more than one occasion ever since.
The pair most recently worked together on New Year's Day special, Revolution of the Daleks.
