At the end of 2022, Doctor Who will once again experience a revolution: actress Jodie Whittaker, as well as current showrunner Chris Chibnall, will leave the series.
The duo will have proposed three seasons (and three special episodes) together before leaving the TARDIS.
The BBC has officially confirmed it: soon, Chris Chibnall, current Doctor Who showrunner who had the heavy load of taking over from Steven Moffat in 2018, will be leaving his place. And he will not be the only one to move on, since the current interpreter of the Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, first woman to finally obtain the role, will leave at the same time as him.
Concretely, at the end of the broadcast of the upcoming season 13, the duo will offer in 2022 a trio of long special episodes to conclude the story of the 13th Doctor. In the fall of next year, the venerable BBC series should therefore start afresh.
Chris Chibnall (also creator of the solid Broadchurch), whose style quite different from that of Moffat will have struggled to convince the fans, declares in particular: “Jodie and I made a pact” 3 seasons and finished “together at the beginning of this experiment extraordinary. So now our service is over and we are handing over the keys to the Tardis. Jodie’s magnificent Doctor has exceeded all of our highest expectations ”.
She said: “My heart is full of love for this series, for the team that makes it, for the fans who watch it and for what it has brought to my life. I can’t thank Chris enough for trusting 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, a few weeks away from completing the best job I’ve ever had ”.
