The BBC has unveiled a new teaser for the upcoming 10th series of Doctor Who (the last for both Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat), which features the Doctor, his new companion Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) and the returning Nardole (Matt Lucas). Check it out here…
Meanwhile, in other Who-related news, The Mirror is reporting that the spinoff series Class is being axed after just one series. The show, created by Patrick Ness and revolving around a group of teens at Coal Hill School, launched on iPlayer and pulled in a million viewers for its first episode, which featured a guest appearance from Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor. However, that fell to just 300,000, and none of the eight episodes made it into the top 50 weekly shows viewed on-demand.
Doctor Who series 10 is set to premiere on BBC on April 15th. »

BBC America on Saturday released a new teaser featuring Bill (up-and-coming British actress Pearl Mackie), who can be seen running towards some sort of supernatural spirit alongside the Time Lord and assistant Nardole (Matt Lucas). The voiceover finds the new companion gushing over The Doctor, referring to the iconic character as “funny,” “amazing” and “a man of peace [who] walks in war.”

Back in October, Benedict Cumberbatch indicated that the fourth series “might be the end of an era”, only for Steven Moffat to downplay his comments and offer a glimmer of hope to fans that we may get further episodes at some point in the future. Well, now co-creator Mark Gatiss has weighed in with his own thoughts, and it doesn’t sound like he’s overly optimistic about a series five:
“I honestly don’t know if there will be any more,” Gatiss tells The Sun. “It’s incredibly difficult to get Benedict and Martin’s diaries to align. And obviously we left it in a very happy place…if that’s the end I »

If you've seen Rogue One, you'll know that CGI recreations of deceased actors have come very close to crossing the uncanny valley. It hasn't taken long for someone to ask Steven Moffat the odds of this technique being using to bring back former Doctors from beyond the grave.

A fan asked the Doctor Who showrunner this, in latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine: could we see William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton on Jon Pertwee brought back through CGI? Sadly, in the time since the question was asked, we've also lost John Hurt.

By now, you've probably stopped taking River Song's farewells as a final end. Alex Kingston's Doctor Who character has had plenty of emotional send-offs, with the most recent one taking place during the 2015 Christmas special, The Husbands Of River Song.

Before River Song, Trenzalore and his take on The Doctor, before Sherlock fell off a building and provided multiple explanations, before James Nesbitt flipped out in a zoo in Jekyll, before Coupling, Joking Apart and Chalk, maybe even before he was known as The Moff, before all that came the quite brilliant Press Gang. Steven Moffat's first TV series, which he wrote all 42 episodes of, was based on an idea by his father, Bill Moffat. At its centre it had a brilliant will they/won't they relationship, and the epitome of a strong female character in Lynda Day. After 5 series it ended, but left behind so many quality episodes, which in trying to choose the stand out mind-blowers has been nigh on impossible. But for jolting, »
It's been an interesting few days for fans of Doctor Who with word that the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi ,was going to be exiting the long-running series. But there's a possibility that the wait to find his replacement may not be a long one, and odds-makers in Britain have already named a frontrunner.
According to William Hill, a British online betting site, Ben Whishaw could be the next Time Lord!
The site has a list of possible candidates for the Thirteenth Doctor, but Whishaw is leading the pack with 6/1 odds to snag the role. Whishaw is perhaps best known for his work as Q in the last two Daniel Craig James Bond movies Skyfall and Spectre.
Whishaw is 37 years old, which would create a sharp contrast from Capaldi, who's 58. There've been murmurs that age was one of the issues that ultimately led to Capaldi's decision to leave Doctor Who.

“Everything ends, and it’s always sad. But everything begins again too, and that’s always happy.”
Well, it's that time again. Peter Capaldi has confirmed that Series 10 of Doctor Who will be his last as the Twelfth Doctor and before the year is out, we'll be looking at number 13. Speculation about who will be cast as the next Doctor usually begins anew the day after one has been announced, and will only intensify in the next few weeks and months, but let's not forget what Capaldi has achieved in the role so far.
Immediately taking umbrage with his new kidneys at the end of The Time Of The Doctor, the Twelfth Doctor is usually characterised as a grumpier and less cuddly version »

A lot has inevitably been written over the past day about Peter Capaldi’s departure from Doctor Who. He’s confirmed that he’ll be departing this Christmas, making way for a new Tardis occupant when Chris Chibnall takes over as Doctor Who boss for series 11 of the rebooted show in 2018.
Much of the discussion has been about Capaldi’s stories, and what he’s brought to the role. But something that doesn’t get enough light shone on it is his sheer behind the scenes humanity. The internet is very good at reducing a person to just their on-screen role, but I wanted to share a couple of small things that Capaldi deserves credit for, yet doesn’t seek.
Firstly, his costume as the 12th Doctor.
One of the things that’s remained important to Capaldi, »
It was hardly a surprise to learn that Peter Capaldi is to hang up his velvet jacket at the end of 2017. By the time of his exit at Christmas, he’ll have completed the standard stint of three-and-a-bit series as the Doctor. And with showrunner Steven Moffat also signing off, it stands to reason that the incumbent Chris Chibnall would want a clean slate and his own cast.

Doctor Who fans woke up to the news this morning that Peter Capaldi, the show’s twelfth incarnation of The Doctor, is leaving the show. His departure is not entirely unexpected, as it coincides with the exit of the showrunner Steven Moffat, who has been with the show since Matt Smith took over the role.
It is bittersweet ending for Capaldi’s Doctor, who had to follow the double act of the aforementioned Smith and David Tennant. The show struggled to find its feet with Capaldi initially, however under Capaldi’s reign the show has seen some of its finest hours. We loved his entanglements with Missy, and his one man show Heaven Sent from Series Nine is one of the best episodes of the show’s entire run.
But all’s not lost! We still »

Here are your takes on the 12th Doctor’s time in the role, from his splendid silliness despite ‘truly awful’ writing to just the right amount of snogging
Doctor Who: our casting wishlist for the BBC – and your suggestions
Peter Capaldi has announced that the 2017 Christmas special will be his last episode as Doctor Who in a statement that described the role as “cosmic”. Here, we look at readers’ responses to the news. You can click to expand the conversation and get involved yourself.
Capaldi is an excellent Doctor, arguably the best of the reboot era. It's a shame that his tenure has coincided with some truly awful writing which rarely gave him the chance to shine.
Capaldi has been a *superb* Doctor and I'll be very sorry to see him go. The quality of the writing has varied over the course of his tenure, but he's certainly made »

Well, folks, we can’t say this has been entirely unexpected. There have been murmurs for some time that actor Peter Capaldi was nearing the end of his tenure as the Doctor in the hit sci-fi series, Doctor Who, but while speaking with the BBC Radio 2 show, Capaldi all but confirmed that the 10th series (or season) of the show would be his last.
“It (the new series of Doctor Who) will be my last… I feel it’s time to move on.”

“I feel it’s time to move on,” Capaldi told the BBC. “I feel sad, I love Doctor Who, it is a fantastic programme to work on. It can’t praise the people I work with more highly, but I have always been someone that did a lot of different things.”
Capaldi, who became the Twelfth incarnation of the Time Lord in 2013, has revealed that he’ll make his exit in this year’s Christmas Special.
“Peter’s amazing, fiery, turbulent Doctor is still fighting the good fight, and his greatest adventures are yet to come,” added Steven Moffat. “Monsters of the universe, be on your guard – Capaldi’s not done with you yet! Like Peter, I’m facing up to »

Looks like it’s time for the Doctor to regenerate again. Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has just confirmed the next season of the long-running British sci-fi series will be his last, after boarding the show back in 2014. He’ll be leaving hot on the heels of showrunner Steven Moffat, who’ll be replaced by Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) starting in 2018. […]

Actor Peter Capaldi is set to exit Doctor Who at the end of the current season. The actor, who has played the iconic BBC character since 2013, will leave at the end of the current season with his final episode airing on Christmas Day.
“I feel it’s time to move on,” he said on BBC Radio 2 on Monday evening.
“I feel sad, I love Doctor Who, it is a fantastic programme to work on,” he said. “It can’t praise the people I work with more highly, but I have always been someone that did a lot of different things.”
Capaldi was apparently asked to stay on in the role, but instead he will leave along with long-standing writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.
Moffat said of Capaldi:
“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, »

Speaking with Jo Whiley on the BBC Radio 2 show, Capaldi revealed his decision to step away from the Tardis following the conclusion of Doctor Who Season 10, which premieres on April 15th and ends in the December holiday season.
Capaldi’s forthcoming exit will coincide with the departure of Steven Moffat, the series’ head writer and executive producer, who has held the showrunner reins since taking over the duties in 2010.
Here’s what Capaldi told Whiley about his bittersweet decision to move on from the iconic role he has played since Matt Smith passed on the torch (or rather, the sonic screwdriver) of the iconic role to him in 2013.
“I feel sad, I love Doctor Who, it is a fantastic programme to work on. »
