Returning for More in 2016
Two new reports this week appear to confirm that Doctor Who exec Steven Moffat and star Peter Capaldi will both be back next year.
Peter Capaldi joined the show as the Twelfth Doctor in 2013 and his second season is currently airing on BBC One.
Season 10 will be Steven Moffat’s sixth season as showrunner.
Speaking to Observer.com, Moffat commented: “I’m just embarking on the new [season] and it’s terrifying. I have to make all that again.”
Revealing what he’s most proud of on Doctor Who recently, he added: “We got some new writers in who I thought were really great. Jamie Mathieson and Peter Harness, and thank God for voices of new people writing. I love that, having new writers this year. Sarah Dollard, Cat Tregenna, so it’s always good getting people who are new to the show.”
The Mirror reported this weekend that Peter Capaldi has agreed to stay on for “at least one more [season]”.
He has apparently agreed to “a new one-year deal with a further one-year option”.
A BBC source is quoted as saying: “Peter has made it clear he is happy playing the Doctor for as long as the BBC – and viewers – want him … Peter is keen to complete three years playing the Doctor to round off his storylines. That will take us until the end of next year. After that, who knows?”
Saddle us with a Female Doctor perhaps? 😦
