Jodie Whittaker, who plays Doctor Who, admits to being ‘grieving’ on the set of the final series.


On set of the final series, Jodie Whittaker, who plays Doctor Who, admits she was left ‘grieving.’

As she filmed her final scenes as the iconic BBC character, JODIE WHITTAKER admitted to “grieving” on set after the deaths of her Doctor Who co-stars.

In the latest series of Doctor Who, actor Jodie Whittaker reprised her role as the 13th Doctor, but it was announced earlier this year that this would be her final appearance.

Yasmin Khan (Mandip Gill) and Dan Lewis (John Bishop), the Doctor’s companions, have joined him.

After the departures of Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, Jodie became the first female Doctor cast in the long-running BBC One sci-fi drama, but after three seasons, she has decided she will no longer play the iconic time lord. The Huddersfield-born actor confessed that she was in a state of mourning while filming her final scenes.

Since then, actor and comedian John Bishop has taken over the role of Dan Lewis, a new character on the show.

Jodie opened up about her experience working with the former footballer.

“Getting to know John has been wonderful for us,” the Doctor Who actor said ahead of her final series’ premiere.

“He came in with his energy and enthusiasm at 110 percent,” she told the BBC.

Amanda Owen and her family have left Ravenseat.

Jodie praised the comedian’s professionalism, but admitted he added something extra to the set.

“He’s been so much fun to be around,” the female Doctor continued.

While John is best known for his comedy, he was once a semi-professional footballer for Southport and Hyde United in Liverpool.

“He’s been a massive team player,” Jodie continued.

In the Doctor Who special on New Year’s Day in 2020, Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole made their final appearances as the Doctor’s companions.

Since 2018, they’ve been by Jodie Whittaker’s side.

Following their departure from the show, the Doctor Who actor expressed her sadness after working together for two years.

“For us, we were still grieving Brad and Tosin,” she admitted.

Jodie praised John Bishop for bringing his own style to the role.

“For him to come in and not try to fill anyone else’s shoes, but to be himself…,” she said.

“We discovered a new dynamic that felt brilliant,” she added.

“It felt so comfortable,” the star continued.

Doctor Who fans can expect “really fun scenes” with Dan, who adds his own flair.

The new Doctor hasn’t yet made an appearance.
