Despite the rumors swirling that Jodie Whitaker will be leaving Doctor Who, nothing has been confirmed by BBC. However, musician Olly Alexander of ‘Years and Years’ fame is a popular pick to take over if she ever decides not to return as the doctor. But his management just announced that he would not replace her anytime soon but it could happen in 2020 or 2021 at this point between touring with his band and other commitments like acting on A Good Place for example!
Martha Kinn, the artist manager of Olly Alexander took to Instagram on Sunday afternoon to quash rumors that he is under a contract with Cybermen. Via her story, she shares “I’m afraid I have to exterminate this speculation,” and confirms that it’s not true. She also says, as nice as it might sound for interest in his music or other projects come up again – they’re just not happening at the moment.” This came after an earlier declaration by Simon Cowell himself saying there was no truth behind any such rumor whatsoever.
Reports have surfaced that actress Jodie Whitaker will not be appearing on the cover of Doctor Who’s annual for 2022. This adds fuel to speculation over whether or not she is leaving her role as The Thirteenth Doctor, following a three-season run in which she has followed David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi out of the TARDIS after their own respective runs with 13 regenerations each – leading many fans to believe we could see an all-female cast take charge next season.
Whitaker announced earlier this month that “she would ‘never say never about returning” but it seems these rumors are true when you consider how close they come up against her original departure date from December 2019 until June 2020.
The Doctor is in the house! Earlier this year, endearingly Jodie Whittaker used her famous character to send “an emergency transmission” to fans of the show about the coronavirus pandemic.
“If you’re seeing this, the Tardis must have detected an upsurge in psychological signals from somewhere in space and time. Basically, I think somebody, somewhere, might be a little bit worried. I’m actually just self-isolating, or as I like to call it, hiding, from an army of Sontarans,” Whittaker said in character in a video posted to social media. “But keep that to yourself. Now, here’s what I do in any worrying situation. One, remember, you’ll get through this, and things will be alright. Even if they look uncertain, even if you’re worried, darkness never prevails.”Whittaker advised everyone to try to keep their sense of humor if they can and remember to be kind.
“Tell jokes. Even bad ones. Especially bad ones. I am brilliant at bad ones. Three, be kind. Even kinder than you were yesterday, and I know you were super kind yesterday. Look out for each other, you won’t be the only one worried. Talking will help, sharing will help. Look out for your friends, your neighbors, people you hardly know, and your family. Cause, in the end, we’re all family,” she said.
