With new showrunner Chris Chibnall taking over the reigns after Series 10, the question everyone has been asking is will Peter Capaldi stay on as the Doctor for a fourth series? It seems it’s a question that’s been troubling Capaldi himself.
I’ve been asked to stay on and I haven’t made my mind up about that yet, mainly because I don’t want to have to make that decision. I’m trying to avoid it!
Capaldi returns to our screens as the Doctor this Christmas in The Return of Doctor Mysterio, followed by twelve episodes in Series 10 next Spring. The 2017 Christmas special will be the final episode by current showrunner Steven Moffat, who will be succeeded by Chris Chibnall.
Doctor Who does take a lot of time, but it’s a wonderful use of it. It’s special. I’m lucky enough to be in touch with other Doctors, and we all agree how extraordinary it is to be in this position. To decide to leave is a tough decision for everybody. [It was] very tough for Steven, so I’m just putting it off for as long as possible.
