Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who: Christmas episode will be his last

Peter Capaldi Christmas Episode

Peter Capaldi has announced that he will be stepping down from his role on Doctor Who. The Scottish Actor has been cast in the role of The Doctor in BCC One‘s sci-fi series since 2013.

“I feel it’s time to move on,” said Capaldi.

“I feel sad, I love Doctor Who, it is a fantastic programme to work on. I can’t praise the people I work with more highly, but I have always been someone that did a lot of different things.”

Capaldi was the twelfth Actor to be cast for the iconic role and will be making his leave following this year’s Christmas episode.

In an announcement from BBC, Steven Moffat lead writer and executive producer of the series, who will also be stepping down, praised Capaldi’s performance.

“Peter’s amazing, fiery, turbulent Doctor is still fighting the good fight, and his greatest adventures are yet to come. Monsters of the universe, be on your guard – Capaldi’s not done with you yet,” said Moffat.

“Like Peter, I’m facing up to leaving the best job I’ll ever have, but knowing I do so in the company of the best, and kindest and cleverest of men, makes the saddest of endings a little sweeter.”

Doctor Who is set to return to screens April 15, 2017
