Doctor Who's twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi has announced that he will be stepping down from the iconic role at the end of this year.

Capaldi's exit will coincide will with showrunner Steven Moffat who has guided the show since its reboot debut in 2005. 

“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best,” he said during an interview on BBC Radio 2.

“From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.”

Capaldi will return as Doctor Who for a final season before his joint swansong with Moffatt in December. In an official statement, Moffatt referred to it as “the best job I’ll ever have”.
