HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/15 – “I feel sad,” says Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi. “I love Doctor Who. It’s a fantastic program to work on and it has been a huge pleasure to work with a family, I can’t praise the people I’ve worked with more highly. But I have always been somebody who did a lot of different things. I’ve never done a 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.”


“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best,” says Capaldi. “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 point to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.”

“For years before I ever imagined being involved in Doctor Who, or had ever met the man, I wanted to work with Peter Capaldi,” says writer and executive Steven Moffat. “I could not have imagined that one day we’d be standing on the Tardis together. 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. But hey, it’s a long way from over. Peters’ amazing, fiery, turbulent Doctor is still fighting the good fight, and his greatest adventures are yet to come.”

In Doctor Who Peter Capaldi is the twelfth reincarnation of the time-traveling Doctor. In season ten, Coal Hill School students with hidden secrets and desires navigate a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow,  and possibly the end of existence. Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who universe since the very beginning, but that has come at a price. Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring all into Shadow.

Greg Austin is Charlie; Fady Elsayed is Ram; Sophie Hopkins is April; Vivian Oparah is Tanya and Katherine Kelly is Miss Quill, and for this season Pearl Mackie is Bill, Jenna Coleman is Clara Oswald, Alex Kingston is River Song, Ingrid Oliver is Osgood and Michelle Gomez is Missy.
