BBC Doctor Who fans in meltdown over romance story between The Doctor and Yasmin

Jodie Whittaker's second-to-last Doctor Who episode – she's back for one more special later in the year – has thrilled fans of the BBC One show.

The thrilling episode, Legend of the Sea Devils, saw Yaz and Dan (in a very fetching pirate outfit) travel to 19th-century waters and encounter Madame Ching – the real-life Chinese pirate queen.

The swashbuckling special also saw the return of the Doctor's old adversaries the Sea Devils, who were intent on flooding the world so they could reclaim the planet.

Amid all the action on the high seas, it was the hints of romance in one early scene for the Doctor and Yaz which really thrilled fans.

"EXCUSE ME??!!! YAZ WAS GONNA KISS THE DOCTOR!!!" said one excited fan.

"SHE WAS THIS CLOSE TO KISSING HER MY HEART IS BEATING SO FAST RN" gushed another.

The blossoming relationship between the pair – played by Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill – has been a hot topic of conversation for the past four years.

In a story called Arachnids In The UK from 2018 – during Jodie’s first year as the Time Lord – they were asked if they were “an item”.

Whovians seized on this and started nicknaming The Doc and companion Yasmin “Thasmin” and penned fanfiction about their love story.

And, in Eve Of The Daleks earlier this year, fellow Tardis traveller Dan Lewis (John Bishop) revealed he had spotted the fact Yaz fancied the Time Lord and said: “Just tell her!”

In a later scene in tonight's episode, Whittaker's Doctor told Yaz that is she were to date anybody it would be her, and added: "I think you're one of the greatest people I've ever known… including my wife"

Fans went into meltdown online as the Doctor told Yaz that anyone she cares about just gets hurt.

"the doctor is breaking my HEART right now," said one fan.

The episode ended with the Doctor saying: "I wish this would go on forever"
