Peter Capaldi Returning For Doctor Who Series 10
Amidst rumors of Peter Capaldi wanting out of Doctor Who, it has now been confirmed that Capaldi will be back for Series 10.
Showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed the return of Capaldi to Variety stating: "Peter Capaldi is going nowhere."
Moffat also seemed to clear up any concerns that Doctor Who would be relaunched with Sherlock-style feature-length episodes (meaning less episodes, but longer) as he stated: "[Doctor Who] is definitely going to last five more years, I’ve seen the business plan. It’s not going anywhere. And I think we can go past that. It’s television’s own legend. It will just keep going."
The rumors stated that Capaldi wanted out of Doctor Who to spend more time with his family, with the rumors also stating the BBC was going to regenerate with a new Doctor played by Game of Thrones' Richard Madden.
"Doctor Who airs" Saturdays on BBCA.
