On a special supplemental episode of Examining The Doctor, Mark and Seth talk about the breaking news that both Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall and The Doctor herself Jodie Whittaker will leave the show after the conclusion of the next season.
“In 2017 I opened my glorious gift box of size 13 shoes. I could not have guessed the brilliant adventures, worlds and wonders I was to see in them.”Jodie Whittaker, The 13th Doctor
The upcoming season will consist of one continuous story followed by three special movie-length episodes in 2022. That will coincide with The BBC’s 100th anniversary.
Jodie and I made a ‘three series and out’ pact with each other at the start of this once-in-a-lifetime blast. So now our shift is done, and we’re handing back the Tardis keys.Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who showrunner
No new Doctor or showrunner has been announced yet.
