Warning: Spoilers for Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks ahead.
The Doctor Who New Year special has all but confirmed a romance between Yaz (Mandip Gill) and the 13th Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and absolutely no one can handle it.
Many fans have been speculating that the relationship between the pair might be more than platonic.
However, Eve of the Daleks has seen it pretty much confirmed, with Dan (John Bishop) urging the characters to tell each other how they feel.
Absolutely no one can handle it, with one viewer writing: ‘Where were you when dan lewis called yasmin khan out on her feelings for the doctor.’
‘i can’t process this like it’s ACTUALLY happening thasmin is ACTUALLY happening,’ another said, while one more added: ‘Oh my god they’ve actually done it.’
They have indeed.
Aisling Bea and Adjani Salmon guest starred in the New Year special, which saw the Doctor and co stuck in a time loop, with an Executioner Dalek coming for them.
Jodie is now set to star in two more specials before the 13th Doctor regenerated – but the jury is still out on who’s set to replace her.
The actress, however, has got a very clear choice on who should play the next Doctor – It’s A Sin star Lydia West.
‘If we had the power to choose… I’m going to pick an actress who I think is really exciting and I think would be phenomenal, an actress called Lydia West,’ she told Jordan North and Vick Hope during The BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show.
‘If I had the power!’
Other contenders tipped to replace Jodie include Lydia’s It’s a Sin co-stars Olly Alexander and Omari Douglas, while Michael Sheen ruled himself out of the job when speaking to Metro.co.uk.
However, Russell, who returns to the helm of Doctor Who for its 60th anniversary, stressed to the Guardian: ‘We have genuinely not cast anyone yet. We’re just starting auditions.’
The second special airs in spring and Jodie’s final feature-length special, in where the Thirteenth Doctor will regenerate, will transmit in autumn 2022 as part of the BBC’s Centenary celebrations.
Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
