During an interview with BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley Peter Capaldi announced that he has decided to step down as the role of the Doctor and that it was time to say goodbye to the show. It is no surprise (as a life long fan of the show) that Peter Capaldi’s exit comes as a shock despite many rumours he would be leaving the same time as show runner, Steven Moffatt. Series 10 will be the culmination of his incarnation of the Doctor and all fans will be sad to seem him leave after delighting us with his magnificent acting performances.
“It (the new series of Doctor Who) will be my last… I feel it’s time to move on.”
(from Doctor Who’s official Twitter account)
However he is still as enthusiastic as ever with his recent statement,
“I’m still #DoctorWho! We’re doing epic stuff! I’m not done yet!” – Peter Capaldi
More news is expected soon.
