Has everyone already heard Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who after season 10?

Well, after 2017 Christmas Special, to be more precise. That means another regeneration around Christmas. It's becoming a tradition. I'm not sure it's good to devote only one episode to a Doctor's regeneration - after all, David Tennant's story needed three while Matt Smith's Doctor just had adventures before one day he aged hundred of years and died regenerated of old age. Yes, it was so Eleven that he was unkillable, but with Twelve, I'd like to see some preparation for his death in season 10. I'd like to see him evolve (or devolve), so his final adventure isn't taken out of air, but has a solid build up. The Doctor should head to his regeneration, maybe more subtly than Ten (no story repeating is a good thing), because then death completes the story. If you think about it, it's so unusual for a tv series to be sure of the main protagonist's death. Anyway, Peter Capaldi deserves a great ending, especially after season 8 that failed to characterise Twelve consistently. Let season 10 be best of Twelve, and his final episode a cherry on top.

And that means Chris Chibnall has a new Doctor to create (and a new TARDIS!) just after he takes over. I think it's for the best. I joined the fandom way after Peter was announced as Twelve so for the first time, I can join discussion and speculation about the new Doctor. Who's going to become Thirteen? (If it's someone who's never played in Doctor Who before, it'd be a surprise ;)) Whoever it is, I hope Chibnall's going to make the Doctor like people and caring about them again. That's the only thing I ask for.

I feel like I'm still getting to know Twelve.

I wonder if he is still going to play his electric guitar...

I hope we learn something about Twelve next season. It's going to be interesting to see him with someone else than Clara.

I hope that Twelve and Bill can establish a solid friendship before he regenerates.
