Peter Capaldi staying put with Doctor Who

Steven Moffat says he isn't writing out Peter Capaldi for the 2017 season.


Peter Capaldi looks set to continue beyond the upcoming season of Doctor Who.

Departing showrunner Steven Moffat told the Doctor Who magazine, “I have no reason to suppose that I’m writing out a Doctor.

“Peter is loving the role, and long may he do so.”

Season 10 is Moffat’s final before handing over the reins to Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch). Filming has been underway recently.

The news follows from Capaldi leaving things a bit open ended in an earlier chat.

“I’ve been asked to stay on, which is lovely – and I think Chris Chibnall’s fantastic and a wonderful choice [but] I haven’t made my mind up,” he said previously.

“You’ve seen him go through all those different colours and all those different places,” he continued. “So where he goes now – in series 10 – I don’t know, but he’s been put through the mill.”

Doctor Who returns with a Christmas special later this year.
