This season was mostly 2-parters, with a couple cool guest/recurring characters, and while some episodes were better than others, overall, I think it was better than last season, and Capaldi's probably my favourite Doctor after David Tennant at this point.

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-01-22/doctor-who-showrunner-steven-moffat-quits-to-be-replaced-by-broadchurch-creator-chris-chibnall

Steven Moffat is stepping down and he will be replaced by Boradchurch creator Chris Chibnell, and because of all the big things Olympics and whatnot happening this year, we're only getting a Christmas special this year as the BBC want Moffat's final series to be an event that's not overshadowed, so our next full series will be in Spring 2017.

I'd heard talk of Moffat leaving before, but not this "let's delay it a year because of sports" nonsense. The Olympics don't last the whole year - odds are, there's behind-the-scenes timing/production issues (maybe the crew are needed for Olympics-related BBC specials or something, idk), and all the positive sendoff stuff's just BS, but imo, there's gonna be angry fans either way, so they should at least be honest.

Not that I really care about waiting an extra year for new episodes, nor do I care that Moffat's leaving and have no opinion on the new guy - I just hope Capaldi will stay on, unlike last time.

Capaldi better stay on, he's probably my favourite Doctor since the 2005 revival of the series.

Peter Capaldi is stepping down as the Doctor at the end of this series


I really wish this wasn't the case, since it feels like we've barely had him, and he's one of my favourite Incarnations

The next guy has some big shoes to fill

serious question: why do they always basically confirm when characters are joining/leaving before the episode of even the series begins airing, instead of just letting people be shocked at the outcome?

my guess is to create hype and speculation over who will take the role

Basically, yeah. Peter Capaldi getting revealed as the last doctor was a big TV event over here when it happened.

I was reading earlier than Ben Whishaw was apparently the favourite to get the role. And whilst I'd like The Doctor to be played by an openly gay man, I'd prefer Whishaw to remain as Q in the Bond series. Personally I'm hoping for the first black or female doctor as it's been confirmed that regeneration can change skin tone / gender.

That being said though, I would love the idea of Stephen Fry being The Doctor.

Thoughts time.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I was a bit worried at the start, because although I know it's important to set Bill up as a character, but the pace was moving a little too slow for me, but when it properly started up, I was gripped from start to finish. And it freaked me a couple of times, which is pretty good going, and judging by the trailers, I am so psyched for this series.

We have a new Doctor! The fourteenth person to step into the Doctor's shoes will be Jodie Whittaker, who is probably best known for sci-fi flick Attack The Block (also starting Star Wars star John Boyega) and an episode of the sci-fi series Black Mirror, "The Entire History of You".

Wait, a thread involving the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor that hasn't devolved into misogynistic rants? Unthinkable!

If she got the role because she auditioned and genuinely captured the role above all others, I don't see a reason to complain.

Absolutely, but many people on the internet don't share your common sense.
