Jodie Whittaker set to return in Doctor Who Season 13

In an interview with EW, Doctor Who‘s 13th doctor Jodie Whittaker has officially confirmed that she is indeed set to return as the titular timelord in BBC America’s forthcoming thirteenth season. The series is currently airing its twelfth season with episode 12.05 titled “Fugitive of the Judoon” scheduled to air this Sunday on January 26.

“Yes, I’m doing another season,” Whittaker said. “That might be a massive exclusive that I’m not supposed to say, but it’s unhelpful for me to say [I don’t know] because it would be a massive lie!…I absolutely adore it. At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it’s not yet. I’m clinging on tight!”
