With news of the departure of Jenna Coleman (Clara) at then end of series/season nine, fans worried that Peter Capaldi (the twelfth Doctor) would follow her out the TARDIS door. In an interview with Nick Vivarelli for Variety, Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat has set minds at ease, confirming Capaldi is in, for series/season ten.
Moffat also asserts that Doctor Who will continue for at least five more years, telling Vivarelli, “I’ve seen the business plan. It’s not going anywhere. And I think we can go past that. It’s television’s own legend. It will just keep going.”
This iteration of Doctor Who premiered in 2005. Prior to Capaldi, Christopher Eccleston played the Doctor, followed by David Tennant, then Matt Smith. Doctor Who airs in UK on BBC One, and in the US on BBC America.
What do you think? Are you a fan of this version of the Doctor Who TV series? Do you think it has five more years in it? Will a woman ever be cast as the Doctor?
