One person who could take Jodie’s spot, though, could be former Line of Duty and Black Mirror star, Kelly Macdonald, 45.
According to the latest odds from Coral bookmakers, the actress stands at 12/1 to take the role, putting her in the fourth position among a whole list of names.
Spokesperson Harry Aitkenhead said: “Everybody is gripped to the sixth series of Line of Duty and Kelly Macdonald’s troubles, and some punters think that we could be seeing a lot more of the Scottish actress on the BBC in future.
“She is now the fourth favourite to be the next Doctor Who after Jodie Whittaker,” but only time will tell to see who secures the role.
Doctor Who seasons 1-12 are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
