Jodie Whittaker confirms return of Doctor Who season 12: Can't wait to step back in and work
Jodie Whittaker is the first female Time Lord in the history of Doctor Who
Actor Jodie Whittaker has confirmed she will be returning for another season of Doctor Who. Whittaker is the first female Time Lord in the history of the cult sci-fi series.
"I really can't wait to step back in and get to work again. It's such an incredible role. It's been an extraordinary journey so far and I'm not quite ready to hand it over yet," Whittaker told The Hollywood Reporter.
Whittaker's debut into the iconic shoes of the Time Lord had been received with considerable praise among fans and critics. As she was the first female to depict the role in the 55-year-old legacy of the franchise, it was refreshing to note that most embraced the character with warmth.
The show's pilot episode for season 11, titled The Woman Who Fell to Earth, garnered a total viewership rating of 10.9 million in the UK, which was the franchise's biggest season launch since the show was revamped into its modern depiction. Veteran, Christopher Eccleston's first episode earned 10.8 million, although the non-television viewings were almost negligible back then.
The 11th season of Doctor Who will end on Sunday, with the show returning for a New Year's Day special. Season 12 is expected to start shooting in early 2019.
