“Your departure is top secret, but the arrival of the 14th Doctor will have to be filmed sometime in the coming months. It's very exciting. & # 39;

MailOnline asked the employees for a comment. The BBC declined to comment.

In the series, which has been on and off since 1963, the title doctor is usually "regenerated" every three to four years.

It's said that Jodie – who has also starred in Broadchurch, Black Mirror, and The Smoke throughout her career – always intended to stick to this rhythm. It is also said that she would like to take on other roles.

In January 2020, she told Entertainment Weekly, “I absolutely adore (the role). At some point these shoes will be passed on, but it's not yet like that. I hold on tight! "

Jodie made history when she was announced as the thirteenth (and first female) doctor in July 2017.

She took on the role of the show's previous star, Peter Capaldi, who played the icon from 2014 to 2017.

Chris Chibnall, who ran the series as showrunner, had previously worked with her in Broadchurch.

A source told The Mirror on Sunday, "It's all very quiet but it is known on the set that Jodie is leaving and they're preparing to regenerate." Her departure is top secret, but the arrival of the 14th Doctor will have to be filmed sometime in the coming months. It's very exciting & # 39;

He said after it was cast that he always intended to introduce the first female doctor and that she was his first choice.

Commenting on the fact that the Doctor would be female, Jodie said, “Doctor Who represents all that is exciting about change. The fans have gone through so many changes and this is just a new, different, not a scared one. & # 39;

She made her first appearance in the 2017 Christmas Special, Twice Upon A Time.

Her first full series ran from October to December 2018, with a New Year's one-off in early 2019.

Jodie's second season – the 12th of the revived era and the 38th overall – aired January through March 2020.

A New Years special for 2021 aired on Friday on BBC One, with the next full season scheduled for later this year – presumably with a new doctor to take over the reins at the end.
