Whittaker Reveals She’s Playing The Doctor 1 More Year

Doctor Who may have one more season ahead. Jodie Whittaker, the current actor taking on the character, revealed in a recent interview that she will appear as the time traveler for one more season. The series has not been officially renewed for a thirteenth season yet.

Per Entertainment Weekly, Whittaker said the following about her future on Doctor Who:

“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! [Laughs] 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!”

Season 12 of the BBC America series is currently airing on Sunday nights. This season, the series is averaging 584,000 viewers per week, which is down 33% from last season.
