It sounds like Peter Capaldi won't be regenerating in Doctor Who Series 10 and may be on board for the long haul.

The BBC recently announced that showrunner Stephen Moffat is leaving Doctor Who, with it been rumored Peter Capaldi would be replaced.

Now Stephen Moffat offers he hasn't heard anything about Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who any time soon.

"I have no reason to suppose that I’m writing out a Doctor," Moffat told Doctor Who Magazine, reports Den of Geek"Peter is loving the role, and long may he do so."

Moffat also went on to state that just because he's leaving Doctor Who, that it doesn't mean he will get a last hurrah.

"The departure of a showrunner doesn’t mean anything to the audience," Moffat explained. "Most of the audience doesn’t know that I exist, so they’d go blank if I attempted to wave goodbye to them. Oh, the embarrassment that would be. So I’m damned if I’m imposing my departure on the show. I just want to do a good one, before I hand over to Chris [Chibnall]."

Doctor Who Series 10 recently began filming and won't premiere until 2017.
