Jodie has played the iconic Time Lord for two series now and has spoken about returning for a third run. She was a welcome addition to the cast after she replaced Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. But how long can viewers expect to see Jodie on screens?
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jodie admitted she isn’t going anywhere.
“I’m doing another season,” she confirmed.
“That might be a massive exclusive that I’m not supposed today, but it’s unhelpful for me to say ‘I don’t know’ because it would be a massive lie!”
Jodie added she “absolutely adores” the role of the Time Lord but she won’t stay in the role forever.

She explained: “At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it’s not yet. I’m clinging on tight!”
Her comments come after bookmakers revealed Kris Marshall is the favourite to replace Jodie when she steps down.
Coral’s John Hill revealed the star’s odds shot up hinting he could be the fourteenth Doctor.
“Kris Marshall was linked with being the next Doctor Who before Jodie Whittaker was handed the role, however, the latest betting suggests he may feature as the Time Lord after all,” he said.
There are still a few episodes left in the current run and Jodie teased the return of the Cybermen.
“The Cybermen have got a lot of presence on set,” she spilled.
“When they move in unison, it’s incredible. It’s really exciting!”
Meanwhile, the BBC have been teasing tonight’s episode hinting something major will happen.
