Your views on everything going on in the hectic world of Doctor Who…

Sad news! On 30 January, Peter Capaldi announced live on air, on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2 show, that the 2017 series will be his last as the Doctor. Here’s some of your reactions…


LAURA HUGILL (22) LEEDS I am writing on the day after the shock news of Peter Capaldi’s departure. I am sure the next actor will be great, and the show must go on, but Peter was born to play the Doctor. His passion for the show shone throughout every episode! I know there were doubters, particularly over the Twelfth Doctor’s temper in his first series, but personally I loved every second. From his quirkiness in The Zygon Inversion, to single-handedly carrying an entire episode in Heaven Sent, Peter blew us away with his brilliant acting abilities. He truly made the part his own.

CLAYTON SCOTT SAINT LOUIS I’m disappointed to hear that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special. He was the first Doctor I watched as his episodes aired, and thus his is my favourite incarnation of the Doctor.

DANIEL THACKERAY OLDHAM I wanted Peter Capaldi to play the Doctor ever since I saw Neverwhere in 1996. It took 18 years, but finally I got my wish – and as far as I’m concerned he not only played the role, but embodied it. I feel that his time in the TARDIS will be ending all too quickly. However, in his three years in the part, he has given so much to the series and its fans in ways that have been truly inspiring. His energy and enthusiasm have seemed boundless, but no doubt it has been extremely gruelling work too, and so of course, if he feels the time is right, he must step away.
