Showrunner Chris Chibnall and star Jodie Whittaker may have confirmed their return for another series of Doctor Who, but it seems Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor will be without two of her current companions when series thirteen gets underway.
As reported by the Radio Times, Bradley Walsh’s Graham and Tosin Cole’s Ryan are set to depart the long-running British sci-fi series in this year’s festive special ‘Revolution of the Daleks’.
According to the report, the departures will be open-ending, leaving the door open for both actors to return to the show for occasional appearances. Mandip Gill will remain on the show as the Doctor’s other companion Yaz.
Filming on series 13 of Doctor Who is expected to begin later this year, with ‘Revolution of the Daleks’ then airing at Christmas ahead of a 2021 return for the new series.
