Peter Capaldi has briefly discussed his future aboard the TARDIS by suggesting that 2016 “could be his final year” as the Twelfth Doctor.

Rumours that the actor would be bowing out of the iconic role at the end of Series 9 were squashed when it was confirmed that he’d be back for Series 10, to feature 12 episodes plus a Christmas Speecial, however the man himself has admitted that all good things must come to an end. “I love Doctor Who but it’s an insular world,” he said. “It’s terrifying to contemplate, but I want to do other things.”.

He continued: “There will, of course, come a time when this will all be over. But I knew that back when I started. I was already thinking about my regeneration scene from the outset.”

Peter was announced as the Time Lord in August 2013, making his televisual debut a year later in Deep Breath, and his first two series have both been a ratings success, averaging 7.4 million and 6.03 million viewers, respectively, as well as breaking records around the world. Filming on his third series is expected to commence in Cardiff in the new year.

    It would be sad for him to leave when none of his episodes, for me, have been much above average. I want Peter Capaldi to have a better legacy than that.
