Jodie Whittaker Says Her Final Doctor Who Episode Is 'One For The Whovians'
Jodie Whittaker has spent the last five years playing the 13th incarnation of the Time Lord on "Doctor Who." Whittaker holds the distinction as the first woman to ever play The Doctor, but will be saying goodbye in the upcoming 90-minute special "The Power Of The Doctor," which will also mark the end of showrunner Chris Chibnall's tenure.
"It's one for the Whovians," Whittaker stated in a recent interview. "It's a huge treat if you're a proper fan. It's got all the iconic things that you associate with 'Doctor Who.' It's massive." Whittaker also hinted that her final scene will be emotionally charged, saying, "I love the dialogue Chris [Chibnall] wrote for my regeneration, it captures my Doctor beautifully."
Whittaker's successor is "Sex Education" star Ncuti Gatwa, who will also make history as the first Black actor to play the titular role. "The Power of the Doctor" arrives sometime between October 16-22, 2022, as part of BBC's Centenary week, but the official release date has not yet been made available.
