Rumors in Hollywood tend to travel everywhere in a matter of seconds. From the basement blogger to reputable sources, people love chatting about a juicy story. One actress has been the part of one major rumor for months, and they’re setting it straight today.

Not Going Anywhere

Weeks after her debut on Doctor Who, rumors have been flying about Jodie Whittaker’s possible exit from the series. Her reason for leaving varies from who you hear. One person states that she’s leaving to spend more time with family. Someone else states she’s packing up due to director Chris Chibnall also looking to split.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jodie Whittaker shoots down those rumors. “I really can’t wait to step back in and get to work again. It’s such an incredible role. It’s been an extraordinary journey so far and I’m not quite ready to hand it over yet,” she said.

The Good With The Bad

Whittaker’s time as The Doctor has met with high praise from numerous people. “Dr. Who was a triumph. A brilliant reinvention in so many ways and Jodie Whittaker is superb,” stated comedian Chris Addison.

Amidst the praise, there have also been some criticisms about the series. “The very fact that Doctor Who’s gender reversal now comes across as a little underwhelming perhaps shows how much progress has been made in a short time, but that doesn’t mean the producers ought to settle for a quiet revolution,” said The Daily Beast‘s Nico Hines.

A Growing Audience

Ratings for this season of Doctor Who has been very steady with an average of seven million viewers. In comparison, Peter Capaldi’s final season as The Doctor received an average of five million viewers.

While there’s no Christmas special this year, a New Year’s Day special titled “Resolution” will be released.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
