Mandip Gill thinks her 'Doctor Who' exit will leave fans in tears.

The 34-year-old actress is set to depart the long-running sci-fi show in the autumn, and Mandip has warned fans to prepare for an "emotional" exit for her character Yasmin Khan.

Asked how fans will react to her departure, Mandip shared: "I think just like me, just like my character, there'll be a lot of tears.

"But I loved where it ended up. I think it was the right thing. It's exciting. There's a lot of emotion. And I think they'll be ... not pleasantly surprised, but I think they'll realise that's exactly where it should be going."

Despite this, Mandip thinks she'll always remain connected to the BBC show.

She told "Is it ever post-'Doctor Who'? I feel like it's post-'Doctor Who' filming. Like that's what we should say.

"Because yeah, we've been away from filming for a couple of months, but you're still such a big part of this world. I speak to all the cast, obviously they're some of my best friends. [And] you're constantly talking about the show. You're doing press for it. We've got the Easter special coming up.

"So I feel like we should rephrase that to post-filming because I'm always going to be a part of it."

Mandip also believes the show will continue to be a huge success in the coming years.

Asked if she has any advice for her replacement, she replied: "None at all, because you know what you get in, and especially the crew in Cardiff, everyone knows what's going on. It's like this beautiful machine that just works.

"They're gonna be absolutely fine and it's gonna fly by."
