Doctor set to go after three years

JODIE Whittaker is set to hang up her sonic screwdriver at the end of the next Doctor Who series.

The actress, 38, has told bosses she intends to keep to the traditional "three years and out" rule - which sees most Doctors quit the TARDIS after their third full series.

Insiders say that Whittaker, the first female Doctor, is keen to take on other roles. Filming on the run of the BBC sci-fi series is due to finish this summer and it will air in the autumn.

A source revealed that she will follow Doctor's companions Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole out the door later this year.

The insider said: "It's very hush-hush but it is known on set that Jodie is leaving. They are gearing up for a regeneration.

"At some point during the coming months the arrival of the 14th Doctor will need filming. It's very exciting."

Comedian John Bishop is joining Jodie for part of the new series, which is being shortened due to Covid restrictions.
