It’s the thing we’ve been dreading- the regeneration of the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. The first woman to carry the iconic BBC character’s mantle, Whittaker first joined “Doctor Who” in 2017. Her first appearance in the long-running series was the Christmas special, “Twice Upon a Time,” where 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi regenerated into Whittaker’s 13th.
We’ve known for sometime Whittaker would be leaving the series, and, who would be replacing her as the 14th Doctor. Ncuti Gatwa, breakout star of Netflix’s wonderful “Sex Education,” was officially confirmed as joining the series in May of 2022.
During a panel at New York Comic Con (NYCC), the BBC released a trailer and several images of the upcoming penultimate episode, “The Power of the Doctor.”
Whittaker’s final “Doctor Episode,” “The Power of the Doctor,” will air October 23rd, 2022. Check out the trailer now:
