His replacement, Chris "Broadchurch" Chibnall, will take charge for a series in 2018.


Honestly, I'm thrilled Moffat is going. I hope Capaldi sticks around, but fear a regeneration as we'll have a new writer and companion. A great chance to start afresh. Still, I have a nasty feeling I can't shake about the time frame and waiting grace. I'm hearing the cloister bells and am praying to be wrong.

There's differing views on whether this is BBC parsimony, with having to cover the Rio Olympics and soccer European Championships in the summer, or Moffat's idleness in working on this & Sherlock.

I would assume Capaldi will leave after Moffat's swansong, which will be 3 seasons in 4 years. Clean slate for Chibnall.

With such a long wait for news, it's nice to have something to talk about now. Jenna Coleman's replacement has been announced:

Meet Pearl Mackie

Isn't it funny how waiting for the new series always feels like a lifetime, yet, once it airs, poof! I welcome Pearl Mackie into the Tardis. Should be interesting on how they explain her name being Bill. I've met a plenty of Bill's ... all men. Now, I'm in no way suggesting that it's more than just a name, but why Bill? Short for Billie perhaps? Is that a more common girl's name in the UK? I mean, to me Mel is a man's name as well, though adapted quite well as we knew Melanie was her name via the Colin Baker era.

All I do know is that next season can't get here soon enough and I truly hope Capaldi will be sticking around. In the meantime, looking forward to the new spin-off series 'Class' set to film at Coal Hill High School. With what little info we have, the Tardis has been spotted on filming which can only be a good sign. Also spotted is a wing named after Barbara Wright! I'd personally love to see Ian Chesterton be a part of the series, even if just for an episode. It would also be a treat to see Luke from Sarah Jane Adventures, but maybe I'm getting my hopes too high.

I'd expect it to be a fun name, much as Mel was short for Melanie. As you say, Billie is sometimes used, usually short for Wilhemina or something like that.

Tomorrow is the day for downloading The Power of the Daleks, its 50th anniversary, though a DVD release will be forthcoming.

Interestingly, a Blu-ray will come out after Christmas, with both the B&W version, and same in colour too Shocked

Very Happy Yes, I'm very excited for TPOTD. Very hopefully others will follow when the BBC sees the success this will have.

Unlike any other, I haven't rushed to watch it twice yet, but not because I didn't adore it. I just want the occasion to be right. I truly adore Matt Lucas --- Matt Lucas set to appear in ALL of ‘Doctor Who’ Season 10 as Nardole

Oh, gosh ... RIP

Yes, a sad day, but a great career to reflect on, wide enough to turn in a fine turn in the 50th anniversary episode. RIP Sad

Peter Capaldi chose an appearance on a late evening radio show to reveal that he was leaving the title role at the end of the year Shocked Quite a contrast from the big publicity-seeking announcement of his having got the part back in 2013.

The main question seems to be whether new showrunner Chris Chibnall will want to cast a woman as the new Doctor, or not.

I thought this was alright, actually, which wasn't something I often felt last year. Pearl Mackie got off to a good start.

Great start and adored Bill as well as Nardole. They should make a great team (however long that lasts). Shame PC is regenerating as opposed to the writers. Still, made for a fun watch and look very forward to the rest.

Really enjoyed them all barring the terrible conclusion to the Monk trilogy.

Funnily enough, it was the middle part of the three that really brassed me off. Apparently if you rely on glasses to do your job properly, then you're stupid enough to risk them getting smashed AND then relying on a co-worker with a hangover.

Ahem.

One thing I've enjoyed is not knowing what's coming from one week to the next (generally, Ice Warriors notwithstanding).
