When asked if she would be returning as the Doctor, Whittaker said: “I’m doing another season.
“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!”
However, Whittaker has accepted that she will not be able to play the doctor forever.
The famous doctor has changed every two to five years on the show.
The first doctor was William Hartnell, who played the first-ever doctor from 1963 until 1966.
He was followed by Patrick Troughton from 1966 to 1969 and Jon Pertwee from 1970 until 1974.
More recent doctors include David Tennant as the 12th doctor from 2005 until 2010, Matt Smith from 2010 until 2013 and Peter Capaldi from 2014 until 2017.
Whittaker is the thirteenth doctor and the first-ever female doctor.
Whittaker explained: “At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it’s not yet. I’m clinging on tight!”
