Will Peter Capaldi Be Leaving DOCTOR WHO Soon?

ByePCOh, we were thisclose to making it to the new series of DOCTOR WHO… thisclose, I tell ya, to beginning a new season without the traditional “Is the star leaving after this series?” non-story.

But, alas, we now have our first official “Is Capaldi out?” story.


Britain’s Daily Mirror tabloid asked the reigning Doctor, Peter Capaldi, if he has plans to exit the series. Peter replied:

“I sort of enjoy this position I am in with a kind of deep Scottish melancholy, because I know it has to end one day. I will cross that bridge when we come to it, which may be sooner rather than later.”

It sounds to me like he’s riffing on the reputation of Scots being morose, but of course The Mirror took this to mean Peter does not plan a long tenure. (Still, he won’t be the actor with the shortest tenure, since his two series still beat Christopher Eccleston‘s one.)

And don’t worry, folks, the annual “When will Clara really leave?” sweepstakes is still ongoing…
