Sad news for Whovians! After three seasons, actor Peter Capaldi officially announced that the upcoming tenth series of ‘Doctor Who’ will be his last. 

“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.”

Capaldi’s final season also marks the exit of showrunner Steven Moffat.

“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,” Moffat said in a statement. “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!”

“Peter Capaldi is an extraordinary Doctor and has taken the show to amazing places,” executive producer Brian Minchin said in a statement. “Although I’m sad he has decided to move on in 2018, I’m delighted that we have one final series with Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat. I know what they’re planning and it’s going to be incredible.”

I’m not looking forward to this year’s Christmas Special. Who do you think should play the next Doctor? Will we finally get a female Doctor?

The highly anticipated 10th series returns Saturday, April 15th at 9/8c.


One thought on “Peter Capaldi Is Leaving ‘Doctor Who’ After Series 10

  1. Paul Bowler says:

    Sad to hear that Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who, think he’s been great as the Doctor. Still, series 11 will be a new era, new showrunner and new Doctor, the show has always been about change, and I think that’s what makes it so exciting. You never know what to expect next. I still think Colin Morgan, who was in the Merlin tv series, would be a good choice for a new Doctor.
