Xmas Special, Peter’s last episode, to film in July
The actor will be stepping down from the iconic role after three series and revealed that he’ll “quite possibly” burst into tears when the time comes to vacate the TARDIS this summer. “I’ve cried already – no, not really,” he said. “But they’re such a nice group of people, so I’ll miss them terribly. And, you know, it’s the end of something. I’ve never done anything for this long before.”
He added: “It is connected to my childhood, plus it brings this warm response from people and children, fans of all different stripes. It’s a magical thing. But then suddenly, it’s over…”
But not quite yet! Peter returns as the Doctor for his final full series on Saturday 15th April.
