News broke tonight that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who at christmas 2017. The news was quite a surprise as the feeling that he was relishing the role, but with the announcement today it seems that his time was up.
After taking over from Matt Smith 3 years ago Peter Capaldi took on the role of the Doctor in the infamous 13th regeneration and has spent that time running around the universe with Clara Oswald up until 2016. Peter bought a sense of tradition with him being a senior looking doctor with a more stubborn manner laced with compassion.
Am I sad Peter Capaldi is leaving the role, he had some great moments, but now the search begins for the next Doctor to ride the Tardis across the breadth of space and depth of time. My money is on Idris Elba for being the next Doctor, anyone agree with me?
