Some sad news, fellow Whovians: It's been announced that this coming season will be Peter Capaldi's last playing the 12th Doctor. His leaving will coincide with the departure of executive producer and writer Steve Moffat, who has been with the show since 2005.
Moffat assures viewers that the 12th Doctor's greatest adventures are yet to come in this upcoming season, starting on April 15th: "Monsters of the universe, be on your guard--Capaldi's not done with you yet."
The show's tenth season will see the Doctor accompanied by his newest companion, Bill, played by Pearl Mackie. The regeneration will take place on the 2017 Christmas special.
