Jodie Whittaker will say goodbye to the Doctor Who series next year
It was precisely the interpreter of the Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker to announce that in 2022 he will say goodbye to the series Doctor Who. The farewell will take place through a feature film that will close a series of three specials.
Debuting in 1963, the long-running science fiction series of British origin brought various actors to the role of Doctor Who, who with the TARDIS has crossed epochs and worlds accompanied by a variety of characters to save civilization.
If, in recent times, the most loved Doctors have been the Ninth, played by Christopher Eccleston, the tenth of David Tennant and the Eleventh of Matt Smith, Whittaker’s Doctor has been able to divide fans since the announcement in 2017.
Despite conflicting opinions, the arrival of the eleventh and twelfth seasons have brought popularity to the actress and created a large chunk of supporters, who will now be saddened by Whittaker’s announcement of abandoning the series.
The showrunner of the series will go with her, Chris Chibnall, but only after concluding the thirteenth season and a series of three specials due out in 2022.
Here are the words of Jodie Whittaker regarding his exit from the series:
In 2017 I started taking on the role of the Doctor. I could not have imagined the brilliant adventures, the world and the wonders that I would see in them. My heart is so full of love for this show, for the team that makes it, for the fans watching it and for what it has brought into my life. And I can’t help but thank Chris for entrusting me with his amazing stories. We knew we wanted to ride this wave side by side and pass the baton together. So here we are, just weeks away from finishing the best job I’ve ever had. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to express what this role has given me. I will take the Doctor and the lessons I have always learned with me.
Some of the actors who played the Doctor in previous seasons never got to officially say goodbye to the character, while it looks different for Jodie Whittaker, who will have the opportunity to greet the protagonist of the series in the most appropriate way.
