Peter Capaldi Is Leaving Doctor Who - TVGuide.com

There will soon be a new face in the TARDIS. Peter Capaldi has announced he will depart Doctor Who after its upcoming tenth season.

The Scottish actor, who joined the long-running sci-fi series in 2013 following the departure of Matt Smith as the time-traveling Doctor, made the announcement during an interview with BBC Radio 2 on Monday.

"I feel sad; I love Doctor Who, it's a fantastic program to work on, and it's been a huge pleasure to work with this family -- I can't praise the people I've worked with more highly," Capaldi said. "But I've always been somebody that did a lot of different things. I've never done one job for three years. This is the first time I've done this and I feel it's sort of time for me to move on to different challenges."

Peter Capaldi is without a doubt an excellent actor but... I got to admit he was far from being my favorite Doctor. I can't wait to see a fresh face to replace him. Someone... younger! Sorry Peter! ^^

Whatever he was an Awesome Doctor, way better than Matt Smith, no offense to Matt Smith or anything, but I prefer smart to goofy. Peter Capaldi is my second favorite next to David Tennant.
