Jodie Whittaker will be leaving "Doctor Who" television show next year, according to BBC on Thursday.
Jodie,the first woman to take on the lead role in sci-fi series, has portrayed The Doctor since 2017.
The show first appeared on British television screens in 1963 .
The 39-year-old, who described the role as "the best job I have ever had", will feature in a six-part Event Serial this autumn as well as in three specials planned for next year.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall will also leave the production in 2022.
"In 2017 I opened my glorious gift box of size 13 shoes. I could not have guessed the brilliant adventures, worlds and wonders I was to see in them," Whittaker said in a statement.
"My heart is so full of love for this show, for the team who make it, for the fans who watch it and for what it has brought to my life ... I don't think I'll ever be able to express what this role has given me. I will carry the Doctor and the lessons I've learnt forever."
