Following rumors that Doctor Who may be the end of the upcoming series Jody Whitaker, fans have taken to social media to support the Thirteenth Doctor.
Hittaker has been playing Time Lord for the past three years, most recently at the Delicates New Year’s Day Special Revolution before airing the Thirteenth Series later this year.
The BBC has yet to confirm Whitcar’s departure, but if true it will follow fellow Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, whose final appearances were at the festival special.
Rumors have sparked unprecedented reactions from fans on Twitter, along with #JodieOurDoctor On Sunday night, the Daily Mirror first suggested that Whitaker leave the show.

“The thing about Jody Whitaker is that she has become an image of comfort and inspiration to a wide range of people,” wrote another. “People feel warmth and happiness when they see the 13th doctor. No matter what happens from now on, Jodi was a great ambassador for this event. #JodieOurDoctor ”.

Whitaker was the first woman to face this doctor, but as one fan noted, her congratulations “went beyond gender representation.”
He went beyond gender representation. Jody Whitaker is the right choice for the first lady in this iconic character and I hope a lot more goes her way. Taking Jodie with the doctor has brought hope, joy and much more to many people # # JodieOurDoctor pic.twitter.com/hk1oWsPS9k

Of course, there’s a big possibility that Whitaker still has more time in Tardis beyond the next series, and rumors are just that. One thing is for sure – there will be lots of frustrated fans when he leaves.
