Capaldi Announces Exit from Doctor Who

In an interview with interview with BBC Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley, Peter Capaldi announced that the 2017 Christmas Special would be his last episode on the infamous show.

Capaldi’s tenure As the fan favorite Doctor will coincide with the departure of the show’s current lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.

Mr. Moffat’s current run as writer has been riddled with criticism. Uneven writing and unclear left some viewers feeling that Doctor Who had perhaps seen its final days. Many people criticized the often unfeeling nature of the 12th Doctor. On the other hand, some fans have blamed this version of the Doctor on Moffat’s writing as opposed to Capaldi’s acting.

Either way, with a new companion joining the Doctor in 2017 and a new Doctor joining the TARDIS in 2018, Doctor Who is in for a shake up.
