Doctor Who's Jodie Whittaker reveals her fate on show beyond series 13 – claiming thought of leaving is 'too upsetting'

JODIE Whittaker has opened up about her future on Doctor Who after three series in the titular role.

The acclaimed actress made history as the first female iteration of the beloved Time Lord when she made her debut in series 10 and has loved her time on the show since.

With series 13 set to hit the BBC next year, Whittaker opened up about her long-term future on the show – and admitted she had no plans to leave whatsoever.

"I haven't even looked at another role since the Doctor, apart from doing Who Do You Think You Are? earlier this year," she told The Telegraph.

"To even question an end point [of Doctor Who] would be too upsetting," she added.

She said that joining the Whoniverse had been a highlight of career, claiming her eperiences with the show's fanbase were always positive.

"I had this idea that fame from Doctor Who would be like that Notting Hill image of Rhys Ifans [opening the front door to paparazzi] and it isn't," she continued.

"If you bump into a Whovian, it genuinely makes both of your days.

"There's something emotional, poetic and very humbling about being in the show, because you're a tiny little jigsaw piece of something that is so precious to so many people."

Jodie's comments come after the latest trailer for Doctor Who's festive special episode Revolution of the Daleks.

The clip confirmed that Sex and the City actor Chris Noth will reprise his role as the disgraced Jack Robertson, while Dame Harriet Walter and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett will guest star in the action-packed episode.

Chris previously appeared in the series 11 episode ‘Arachnids in the UK’ and it’s safe to say the Doctor and all those involved were less than impressed by his questionable actions.

It was previously confirmed that John Barrowman will also be back as Captain Jack Harkness for the festive special, much to fans' delight.

On returning for the Festive Special, Barrowman gushed: “Putting on Jack’s coat and setting foot back on the set of Doctor Who was just like going back home.

"It’s always thrilling to play Captain Jack. He’s a character very close to my heart who changed my life, and to know the fans love him as much as I do makes his return even sweeter. I hope everyone enjoys Jack’s Heroic adventure with Thirteen."

Doctor Who: Revolution of the Daleks will air on New Year's Day on BBC One.
