Whittaker plans to follow the pattern of previous Time Lord actors by being on the series for just three seasons, The Mirror reported Sunday. One unnamed insider told The Mirror it's all "hush hush" at the moment, but her departure is indeed happening.
However, the BBC refuses to officially confirm the news of her departure yet, Digital Spy reported Sunday. "We won't be commenting on any speculation around Jodie's future on the show," the network told the publication.
Even Whittaker has previously mentioned how much she loves playing the Doctor. "I absolutely adore it, she told Entertainment Weekly last year. "At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it's not yet. I'm clinging on tight."
