John will be back on the small screen later this year in the 13th series of Doctor Who where he plays The Doctor’s new companion Dan.

The actor joined the cast following the departure of Ryan (played by Tosin Cole) and Graham (Bradley Walsh) during the New Year’s special Revolution of the Daleks.

It comes after rumours emerged that Jodie Whittaker, the first female Doctor, will leave the show after series 13.

The BBC refused to comment on speculation, after it was reported that the screen star handed in her notice for the show.

Jodie reportedly told BBC bosses that she won’t be returning to the popular series following the conclusion of the upcoming series 13.

That will mark a three-year run for the actress, which is about average for recent actors playing the time-traveling alien.

Matt Smith, David Tennant and Peter Capaldi also appeared on Doctor Who for three series each, while Christopher Eccleston only appeared on one series after the show was revived in 2005.
