Peter Capalidi Will Return for DOCTOR WHO Season 9
Peter Capaldi is set to reprise his role as the twelfth Doctor in the ninth season of Doctor Who, but the Doctor’s companion, Jenna Coleman, has yet to sign up for another adventure. I’m still getting caught up on this last season, but I’ll admit… it hasn’t been my favorite. Capaldi hasn’t really won me over, and I’m really missing Matt Smith.
The news was confirmed by showrunner and producer Stephen Moffat. Everyone involved with the show seems to be pretty happy with how the eighth season turned out. Danny Cohen, director of BBC Television, said in a statement,
"It's been an outstanding debut series for Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who and I'm very grateful to Peter, Steven Moffat and everyone involved.”
They are looking to keep the Doctor Who magic alive, and I really hope that they are able to make something a little better this next time around. Look, I love Doctor Who, but this last season just did’t do it for me, and I know I’m not the only fan to feel that way.
