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.

Info:

On joining the cast in her first major television role, Pearl said: “I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Doctor Who family. It’s such an extraordinary British institution, I couldn’t be prouder to call the TARDIS my home!

“Peter Capaldi is such a brilliant actor, and his Doctor is such a wacky and wonderful character, I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store for him and Bill throughout time and space. Reading the script at the audition I thought Bill was wicked. Fantastically written, cool, strong, sharp, a little bit vulnerable with a bit of geekiness thrown in – I can’t wait to bring her to life, and to see how she develops through the series.

“I always loved stage combat at drama school so I can’t wait to get on set and kick some evil monsters into the next dimension!

Shooting the trailer was absolutely mental, there were pyro technics and smoke and I met my first Dalek! I’m not sure it will ever become ‘the norm’ seeing crazy monsters on set, but I cannot wait to meet some more! The weirder the better, bring it on!”

Peter Capaldi said: “It is a genuine delight to welcome Pearl Mackie to Doctor Who. A fine, fine actress with a wonderful zest and charm, she’s a refreshing addition to the TARDIS and will bring a universe of exciting new possibilities to The Doctor’s adventures.”

Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer adds: “A new face in the TARDIS, a new voyage about to begin: welcome aboard the amazing Pearl Mackie! This is where the story really starts.”

Charlotte Moore, Acting Director of Television said: “It’s so exciting to be revealing the much anticipated new companion to the nation in such spectacular style. Pearl brings a wonderful energy and lights up the screen. She will captivate Doctor Who fans old and new across the globe.”

Brian Minchin, Executive Producer adds: “We’re utterly thrilled to have the hugely talented Pearl join Doctor Who and I can’t wait to begin her new adventures in time and space!”

Doctor Who is a BBC Cymru Wales produced drama and will return later this year with a Christmas Special. The new series will start on BBC One in 2017.

Doctor Who Series 10 To Have Full Season

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22839:]]

Showrunner Steven Moffat continues to shoot down Doctor Who rumors with the latest being that Series 10 will be a half season.

A recent rumor stated that due to Peter Capaldi pursuing other projects, that Doctor Who Series 10 would air only six episodes plus the Christmas Special.

However, Moffat states that isn’t true as he tells the Radio Times Doctor Who Series 10 will have a full run plus the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

“We’re making a full series. I can confirm that,” Moffat said. “I’m making a full series of 12 episodes, plus a Christmas special. I don’t know when it goes out. That’s up to someone else. And even if I did know – which I genuinely don’t – I wouldn’t be allowed to say so as I have absolutely no say in it whatsoever. [But] it’s not being reduced in size. We’re not making fewer episodes. That’s all complete bunk. I can confirm that absolutely.”

Likewise, Capaldi said more of the same to the BBC.

“Not as far as I know,” Capaldi said responding to questioning that fans will be disappointed by a shortened Series 10. “That’s now what I’ve been told. So, that is not what I’m contracted for.”

Capaldi also mentioned that he would like to see Doctor Who air earlier on Saturdays at 7pm.

Moffat also recently shot down the rumor that Peter Capaldi was leaving the series, confirming that Peter Capaldi is Doctor Who and not going anywhere.

“Doctor Who” airs Saturdays on BBCA.

Peter Capaldi Returning For Doctor Who Series 10

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22756:]]

Amidst rumors of Peter Capaldi wanting out of Doctor Who, it has now been confirmed that Capaldi will be back for Series 10.

Showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed the return of Capaldi to Variety stating: “Peter Capaldi is going nowhere.”

Moffat also seemed to clear up any concerns that Doctor Who would be relaunched with Sherlock-style feature-length episodes (meaning less episodes, but longer) as he stated: “[Doctor Who] is definitely going to last five more years, I’ve seen the business plan. It’s not going anywhere. And I think we can go past that. It’s television’s own legend. It will just keep going.”

The rumors stated that Capaldi wanted out of Doctor Who to spend more time with his family, with the rumors also stating the BBC was going to regenerate with a new Doctor played by Game of Thrones‘ Richard Madden.

“Doctor Who airs” Saturdays on BBCA.

Peter Capaldi Rumored To Be Leaving Doctor Who

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22321:]]

Update: Peter Capaldi is returning for Doctor Who Series 10.

 

Is it time to hit the panic button?

Amidst dwindling viewership for the new season of Doctor Who, not only is it confirmed that Jenna Coleman is leaving, but now it’s said Peter Capaldi is contemplating leaving the series

That’s not all as the UK’s Mirror is also reporting there may be a change in the way Doctor Who episodes are released.

With ratings and the numbers of viewers down this year the Mirror is stating sources are considering scrapping next year’s series of Doctor Who and screening feature-length specials instead, similar to the way episodes of Sherlock are released.

It’s said Doctor Who is the BBC’s biggest-selling program overseas, but according to the report, Doctor Who has hit a “crisis period” as viewership is now below four million (down around 2 million).

Regarding Peter Capaldi leaving the show, the reason given is said because Capaldi wants to spend more time with his family.

So with Capaldi and Coleman leaving, execs are considering scrapping next season and instead releasing a couple of “Sherlock-style” feature-length episodes plus the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

It’s also rumored the BBC may reboot Doctor Who with a new cast in 2017 with Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones, Cinderella) said to be at the top of the list to play the new Doctor. A new female Doctor Who is also said to be a contender.

The BBC is also developing a Doctor Who spinoff aimed at younger viewers with Class.
