‘Doctor Who’ Peter Capaldi Replaced? Netflix Removes Show


A major revamp will be happening in the upcoming season of “Doctor Who.”

Mirror cited a source on the show who revealed that the bosses behind “Doctor Who” are already discussing a fresh start when showrunner Steven Moffat leaves.

Peter Capaldi also expect him to make an exit when Chris Chibnall replaces Moffat although the higher-ups are appreciative of the actor’s performance as the 12th Doctor.

“They’ve been happy with what Peter has brought to the role but some think it might make sense to give Chris his own choice of actor to play the Doctor,” the source said.

A BBC spokesperson made a note that Capaldi was signed for the 2017 series. Nothing beyond that agreement was ever discussed, Mirror reported. Capaldi accepted his future in the show but admitted that he is terrified.

“This could be my final year it’s terrifying. I love Doctor Who but it can be an insular world and I do want to do other things,” the actor said.

Meanwhile, Moffat told the magazine that he will keep the Tardis warm for Chibnall.

The 10th season of the popular BBC show will air in Spring 2017 while Season 11 will debut in 2018 with Chibnall at the helm.

It has only been a decade when “Doctor Who” was captured by American audiences but it has been an institution of British television for more than 50 years now. 

“Doctor Who” is one of the biggest shows on international television, with a global viewership of around 70 million people. It is also one of the most expensive shows on British TV, with an annual budget of anything up to $21 million, Engadget noted.

However, there is another sad news. Netflix will also be pulling out “Doctor Who” from its streaming service starting on February 1, 2016.

Netflix is definitely losing all eight seasons of the new “Doctor Who,” and it’s not the only TV show to be leaving Netflix this February, Cinema Blend reported.

If you are a fan of Netflix shows, such as “Chicagoland,” “Death Row Stories” and “The Guild,” it’s high time to binge watch them all before they’re gone.
