Just who will be the next Doctor Who?
Scottish actor Peter Capaldi revealed on Monday that he was stepping down from the iconic sci-fi series’ titular role.
“It will be my last,” Capaldi told BBC Radio 2 host Jo Whiley while talking about the upcoming season, which premieres in April. “This will be the end for me.”
Capaldi, 58, said he felt “sad” at leaving the “fantastic program” which had been “a privilege” to work on.
“But I’ve always been somebody that did a lot of different things,” he said. “I’ve never done one job for three years, I feel it’s sort of time for me to move on to different challenges.”
According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, British actors Ben Whishaw, Richard Ayoade, Rory Kinnear and David Harewood are all in the running to take over the role.
