All good things must come to an end: Jodie Whittaker leaving Doctor Who next year

It was great while it lasted. I hope Whittaker is leaving on her own terms and not because of the toxic elements of the Whovian fandom who abhorred anyone but a white dude playing a fictional time traveling alien. I, on the other hand, was one of the many fans who were enthusiastic that a woman had finally been cast to play the Doctor. With luck, she won't be the last to step into the role.

I also hope that we'll be seeing her more. Several of her predecessors and other Whovian alumni have found success post-DW, and hopefully Jodie Whittaker will join them.

Chris Chibnall is also departing, meaning the show will need a new head honcho.

Let the speculation on their successors commence!


  1. To be honest, I think the best news is Chibnall leaving. We'll never know how popular Whittaker's Doctor could have been simply because the stories have been, by and large, extremely weak. I though the stories started dropping in quality during Capaldi's run and they were only saved by Capaldi's charisma. Here's hoping the new show runner brings some strength back to the stories.

  2. Everyone I know stopped watching Doctor Who years ago. Basically fed up with the weal woke stories that the BBC churned out.
