Doctor Who’s Jodie Whittaker may have iconic regeneration scene axed after BBC ratings

“That could see them take the decision to put space between Jodie’s time in the Tardis and that of her successor,” they added to The Sun.

Perhaps to some viewers, the move may seem radical but the decision to cut the iconic scene had been decided before by writer Russell T Davies in 2005.

Actor Christopher Eccleston, who played the titular character, was not seen emerging from regeneration, and the batch of 21st-century series was intended as a clear break from the Doctor’s adventures in the 1980s.

However, in a much later episode of the series, he was eventually seen reforming from the late John Hurt.
