Last month, we'd heard rumors and speculation around Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat quitting his other job, executive producer of Doctor Who, after the upcoming season 10 episodes. This has, unfortunately, been confirmed in a new announcement from BBC and the writer, marking an end of an era for the popular series. Whether or not series star Peter Capaldi will leave the show too has not been confirmed, though we've heard rumors of that as well, especially since Jenna Coleman just departed the series in 2015. We won't have to say goodbye to Moffat any time soon though, because season 10 airs in 2017 after a 2016 Christmas special. So we'll meet Moffat's replacement, Chris Chibnall, in 2018!

If you are a fan of Peter Capaldi, then you will be thrilled to know that the actor has been confirmed to play the Time Lord in "Doctor Who" for the upcoming ninth season. Showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed that Capaldi's spin as the 12th doctor will extend for at least a second year. Unfortunately, Jenna Coleman's future still remains in question. She has portrayed Clara Oswald, the doctor's companion for the last two seasons, but there has been intense speculation that the upcoming Christmas episode will lead to her character's exit from the show. A DVD launch party for the recently completed eighth season of "Doctor Who" brought the cast back together, and in an interview Capaldi admitted that he was invited to read for the role of the eighth doctor back in 1996 and actually declined. Capaldi explains that he loved the role so much that he did not want to be crushed by going for it and then not getting it.READ MORE
