Jodie Whittaker ‘QUITS’ Doctor Who: Actress ‘to leave role as first-ever female Time Lord at the end of the new series’ after 3 years on sci-fi show

Jodie Whittaker has reportedly quit Doctor Who.

The actress, 38, is said to have told bosses of the BBC sci-fi drama series that she won’t return after the forthcoming new series, and that they’ll need to start thinking about recasting the role of the Time Lord.

A source told The Mirror on Sunday: ‘It’s all very hush-hush but it is known on set that Jodie is leaving and they are gearing up for a regeneration.

Over and out? Jodie Whittaker has reportedly quit Doctor Who

‘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.’

MailOnline has approached reps for comment. The BBC declined to comment.

The series – which has been on the air on and off since 1963 – typically sees the titular Doctor ‘regenerate’ every three-four years.

It’s said that Jodie – who has also starred in the likes of Broadchurch, Black Mirror and The Smoke during her career – always planned to stick to this rhythm. It is also said she wants to pursue other roles. 

Moving on? The actress, 38, is said to have told bosses of the BBC sci-fi drama series that she won't return after the forthcoming new series, and that they'll need to start thinking about recasting the role of the Time Lord
