It’s the end of the era Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall in Doctor Who, BBC One has just confirmed that the doctor and the showrunner are leaving the series at the end of season 13.
The duo landed on the iconic sci-fi series in Season 11, taking over from Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat. They thus marked the history of Doctor Who with Whittaker being the first woman to play the legendary character.
Chibnall has also revealed that he has made a pact with Jodie Whittaker for three seasons and that they will leave the series together.
In addition to introducing a new version of the Doctor, Chris Chibnall also introduced new companions, played by Tosin Cole (Ryan), Bradley Walsh (Graham), and Mandip Gill (Yaz). Season 12 was marked by a new incarnation of the Master, played by Sacha Dhawan, an unknown incarnation of the Doctor (played by Jo Martin), as well as the return of Jack Harkness.
Not long ago, the BBC teased season 13 of Doctor Who, which will tell us about the latest adventures of Doctor Whittaker, under the supervision of Chibnall. This will be marked by the arrival of a new companion, Dan Lewis (John Bishop). Due to COVID-19 among others, it only consists of six episodes.
No information has yet been released on who will take over from the duo. If speculation had already started, bets are officially off until the BBC’s official announcement!
