News Peter Capaldi to quit Doctor Who after Season 10 Published 2 years ago on January 30, 2017 Peter Capaldi has revealed that he is to quit the role of The Doctor on the BBC’s flagship scifi show Doctor Who. Speaking with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio the Twelfth Doctor said “I feel it’s time to move on.” The actor replaced Matt Smith in season eight. Capaldi’s final appearance will now be in the 2017 Christmas special. The move also coincides with the departure of current showrunner Steven Moffat. Chris Chibnall is taking over as showrunner from season 11 onwards. Expect the usual flurry of stories on possible candidates for the next Doctor. Update: The BBC rushed out a press release confirming the news with Capaldi saying “One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.” Meanwhile show runner Steven Moffat added “For years before I ever imagined being involved in Doctor Who, or had ever met the man, I wanted to work with Peter Capaldi. I could not have imagined that one day we’d be standing on the TARDIS together. Like Peter, I’m facing up to leaving the best job I’ll ever have, but knowing I do so in the company of the best, and kindest and cleverest of men, makes the saddest of endings a little sweeter. But hey, it’s a long way from over. Peters’ amazing, fiery, turbulent Doctor is still fighting the good fight, and his greatest adventures are yet to come. Monsters of the universe, be on your guard – Capaldi’s not done with you yet!” Doctor WhoPeter Capaldi Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes9 hours ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
