Capaldi drops hint that this regeneration might be a little different. 0
Peter Capaldi has strongly hinted that we will see a different regeneration for the 12th Doctor.
Speaking to the NYTimes, Capaldi revealed: “There’s this notion now that it’s the same process he’s gone through every time, and that’s not true. It’s only the last couple of regenerations that have been, as it were, fairly straightforward ones. I can’t go into the details of a lot of it, because I know what happens, but I don’t know how it happens.”
Capaldi also elaborated on why it was time to move on: “They asked me to stay on. And I love this show. But I began to get worried about my capacity to deliver my best work. The schedule is very intense, and I began to wonder, how many different ways can I find to say, “The time vortex is going to open up and destroy the entire universe as we know it, unless we blow up that model spaceship over there”? It concerned me that if I did more, yes, I’d be able to do it, but I’d just be phoning it in. And I didn’t ever want to be in that situation.”
Pearl Mackie Gets Fired From Doctor Who After Only One Season 0
Reports have it that Pearl Mackie has seen the last of the TARDIS and will be out after the Christmas episode. The new show running Chris Chibnall is said to want a complete fresh start.
Pearl, who plays Bill, is obviously disappointed. She played not only the first openly gay companion, but also only the second women of color to travel full time with the Doctor. “It’s important to say people are gay, people are black – there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out for them.” she told BBC news. She continued, “I remember watching TV as a young mixed race girl not seeing many people who looked like me, so I think being able to visually recognise yourself on screen is important.”

It has been officially announced by Fantom Events that the opening episode of the new season of Doctor Who will receive a release in cinemas next month.
12 new episodes have been filming in Cardiff since June 2016, with Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas joining Capaldi as the Doctor’s latest companions, Bill Potts and Nardole.
Doctor Who Season 10’s opener premieres on TV on Saturday 15 April and it will then be shown in US cinemas on Monday 17 April and Wednesday 19 April.

The run time is listed as 1 hour and 40 minutes. This is likely to also include exclusive bonus content, as with previous Doctor Who and Sherlock cinema releases, but based on this total run time it seems we can assume that this is a feature-length episode and not just a regular 45-minute story.

Peter Capaldi to leave Doctor Who - New Who coming! 0
Doctor Who" star Peter Capaldi has announced he'll step down from the role at the end of the year.
Capaldi has starred in the long-running sci-fi series as the titular Twelth Doctor since 2013, following the departure of Matt Smith.
"One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead," Capaldi said in a statement. "I can't thank everyone enough. It's been cosmic."
Capaldi will conclude his time as the Doctor with the 2017 Christmas special.
The actor's departure will correspond with the exit of executive producer Steven Moffat, who previously announced his intention to leave his post.
"For years before I ever imagined being involved in 'Doctor Who,' or had ever met the man, I wanted to work with Peter Capaldi. I could not have imagined that one day we'd be standing on the TARDIS together," Moffat said in a statement. "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."
Moffat added that Capaldi's "greatest adventures are yet to come" on the show.
"Monsters of the universe, be on your guard -- Capaldi's not done with you yet," Moffat said.
Capaldi's departure will leave one of British television's most iconic roles vacant.
Season 10 of "Doctor Who" begins April 15.
Sir John Hurt, Oscar-Nominated Star our war Doctor, Dies at 77 0
Sir John Hurt - one of the defining actors of his generation - has reportedly died. He was 77.
The Doctor Who and Alien star passed away on Friday (January 27) after battling pancreatic cancer in the last few years of his life, according to The Mirror. He'd celebrated his birthday on January 22.
A near-ubiquitous presence on TV, film and the stage across six decades, Sir John earned four BAFTAs, a Golden Globe and was nominated twice for an Academy Award.
Having cut his teeth in the early years of BBC drama, Sir John had his star turn on the big screen as the Lord Chancellor Richard Rich in the beloved 1966 period drama A Man for All Seasons.
His transformative portrayal of influential LGBTQ writer Quentin Crisp in ITV's The Naked Civil Servant remains a staple of '70s TV drama at its finest, as does Hurt's turn as the insane emperor Caligula in I, Claudius.
Missy's back on Doctor Who for series 10, Michelle Gomez reveals! 0
Get excited, because Missy IS going to be back on Doctor Who series ten.
Michelle Gomez, who plays the current incarnation of The Master, confirmed to The Music that she will be returning to the set of the BBC series once again.
"Weirdly, this is the sort of crunch week where I get to find out exactly what I'm going to be doing next," she said.
"I can officially say that I will be starting back on Doctor Who soon, so that's one thing."
Gomez previously said that she would be up for popping up in Doctor Who spin-off Class.
"I am an actor for hire, so if I'm free and it seems like the right thing to do at the time I'd grab it with both hands," she said.
Missy was last seen in 'The Magician's Apprentice' and 'The Witch's Familiar' in 2015.
She was abandoned on Skaro, where she came upon a room of angry Daleks.
