Peter Capaldi set to leave Doctor Who after 4 years:

1447163982-05370b17b6a2addcbcad0a9310a901c1-jpg-galleryPeter Capaldi, 58, announced on BBC Radio 2 in an interview with Jo Wiley that he’ll be stepping down as the 12th incarnation of The Doctor, after a whirlwind four years which saw a more mature side to the Gallifreyan hero.

“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best.

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 incarnation of The Doctor will leave at Christmas with executive producer – and writer – Steven Moffat, as it seems that Chris Chibnal will be taking over with a clean slate, although no word if Pearl Mackie – Bill in the upcoming season of Doctor Who – will still remain onboard the TARDIS.

Now that Capaldi has announced his departure from the hit BBC1 programme, it remains to be scene who will take up his position as the 13th incarnation of The Doctor. Bookies are already selecting favourites, with Ben Whishaw, Colin Morgan, Richard Ayoade and Rory Kinnear all amongst them, alongside David Harewood and Olivia Coleman.
