[{"text":"Peter Capaldi surprisingly announced this week that he would be leaving Doctor Who at Christmas, with Season 10 being his last in the title role. "},{"image":[{"src":"doc12236doctors.jpg"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"#NL#Season 10 will be Peter Capaldi's third season playing The Doctor. Three seasons has now become the traditional duration for actors to stay in the role. #NL#It started with First Doctor William Hartnell, and his successor Patrick Troughton. The Fifth and Seventh Doctors also followed suit. In recent years both David Tennant and Matt Smith lasted three seasons.    "},{"image":[{"src":"chi316620chibnall.gif"},{"caption":"Chris Chibnall"}]},{"text":"#NL#Christmas 2017 also marks the end of the Steven Moffatt era as showrunner for Doctor Who, before being replaced by Chris Chibnall for Season 11. #NL#Often the incoming producers will want a "clean slate" and cast a new Doctor and Companion - as Moffatt did with Matt Smith and Karen Gillen. #NL#It was initially expected that Capaldi would step down in December, but then he announced that he wanted to stay in the role for 2018. However Capaldi has now changed his mind, and will be leaving after all."},{"image":[{"src":"ten927192tennant.jpg"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"One factor in Capaldi's decision might be that BBC Producers are said to be keen to boost viewing figures and sales of toys and other merchandise, which have declined in recent years. They are reported to have called for "a return to the Tennant era.""},{"image":[{"src":"ico48146icon-wit.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"#NL#Intense specualation has (as ever) begun about who will replace Capaldi as the next Doctor, with literally dozens of names being suggested.#NL#Important point to remember: When an actor says on Twitter that he or she would like to play the next Doctor, that does NOT mean that they are on Chibnall's list of potential choices."},{"text":"#NL#One thing that we do know is that Chibnall will be under a lot of pressure from BBC executives not to do anything too drastic, and to return "back to basics." #NL#They will want someone male, white, youngish, handsome, famous (but not too famous), and able to commit full time to the show for 3 or 4 years. "},{"image":[{"src":"doc925558doctor-a.jpg"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Until then we have Season 10 to look forward to, with a confirmed start date of April 15th 2017, and new companion Bill.
