Yorkshire lass, Jodie Whittaker, who has been in the role of the thirteenth Doctor in the popular BBC show Dr Who since 2017, is set to air her last episode later this month.
From Skelmanthorpe, Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, Whittaker’s final episode will air later this month and she has been on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show and opened up about how she is feeling as her time as the Doctor comes to an end.
Speaking on the show she said: “Well, you know what, it’s been such an emotional rollercoaster… I finished filming this episode in October last year, so I’ve had a whole year to get my head around leaving, and I’m still not there.”
Adding: “I’m still crying about it, I’m still clinging on to the coattail, reluctantly handing over the shoes. I’ve still got a couple of weeks to just, you know, enjoy the moment.
“I think it’s a celebration of it, because you’re so emotional, it was amazing. But it’s only a good thing to end something and be reef with it because it was such a wonderful experience.”
The final episode for Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord will air on October 23rd where she will be replaced by Ncutia Gatwa, the star of Netflix’s Sex Education and the first full-time Black Doctor.
