The classic BBC series Doctor Who may face—again—changes in its cast. According to information released by the British website The Mirror, actress Jodie Whittaker, protagonist of the series, will leave the program after the conclusion of the next season.

With that, the “Doctor”, main character of Doctor Who, will have its 14th roleplaying with a new actor or actress taking on the role for a future new season. Jodie was the first woman to play the character since the series was released in 1963.

The departure of Jodie and the change in the direction of the series is already being worked on by the production. “It’s all very secret,” a source told The Mirror, “but we know that Jodie is leaving and they are preparing for a regeneration. At some point in the next few months the arrival of the 14th Doctor will need to be filmed. It’s very exciting.”

Actors Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, who star in the show alongside Jodie, are also expected to leave the cast of Doctor Who, according to the publication. Chris Chibnall is expected to remain showrunner.

The production of Doctor Who it was another one that had to be postponed due to the pandemic. With that, filming for the new season — the 13th since the series was restarted in 2005, or the 39th, if we count every year since its release in 1963 — should be completed by mid-year and released in late 2021 on British TV channel, BBC.

The final season starring Jodie will only have eight episodes. In Brazil, Doctor Who can be seen on Globoplay streaming.
