Peter Ca­paldi to quit Doc­tor Who at year’s end

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Peter Ca­paldi, the lat­est in­car­na­tion of “Doc­tor Who,” says he is quit­ting the lead role in the BBC sci­ence fic­tion series at the end of the year. Ca­paldi joined the show in 2013. He says “it’s been cos­mic” but “it’s time to move on.” The 58-yearold Scot­tish ac­tor will star in a 12episode series start­ing in April and make his exit in De­cem­ber. “Doc­tor Who,” first broad­cast in 1963, is one of the BBC’s most pop­u­lar pro­grams. Ca­paldi is the 12th in­car­na­tion of the Doc­tor, an alien Time Lord who trav­els through space and time. The role has been played by 13 ac­tors, in­clud­ing the late John Hurt.
