Jodie Whittaker Apologises To Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the ‘Doctor Who’ Rumors.


The new Doctor Who star, Jodie Whittaker has recently come out saying that said wishes to sincerely apologize to Phoebe Waller-Bridge for having to deal with speculation over her role.

Whittaker is ready to become the 13th Doctor and first female doctor (in the show’s 54-year history) when she finally takes the role over from Peter Capaldi.

There was a rumor that Waller-Bridge was in line for the role. On BBC Radio 2, while talking to Dermot O’Leary, Whittaker said: “It was just amazing that Phoebe Waller-Bridge had all that and she dealt with it all so amazingly and gracefully.”

She then added, “At no point could I just text her and go, ‘I’m so sorry’ – because I was under the radar the entire time until the last few days.”

When elaborating on the secrecy behind this announcement, Whittaker said: “I told my husband – that doesn’t count does it? – and I told my mum. And then my dad was furious!”

“It was a full military operation – I basically whispered for three months. It was getting really tedious that even in my own kitchen I was still talking like that. If the window was open I’d get like, ‘what have I said, what have I said?!’”
