After three season, Peter Capaldi has announced he is departing the Doctor Who television series in the 2017 Christmas Special.
“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best,” said Capaldi in a post on the BBC website. ‘From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.”
Capaldi’s final season of Doctor Who will be 12 episodes long, followed by the Christmas Special, where the new Doctor will be introduce.
