It’s no secret that I’ve not been a fan of the latest series of Doctor Who. I found the writing to be weak and repetitive.
I did however respond well to Peter Capaldi and I’m delighted to hear that he is set to reprise his role as the twelfth Doctor in the ninth and tenth series of Doctor Who.
I just hope the writing improves.
The news was confirmed by current showrunner Stephen Moffat, at the series 8 DVD launch.
At present there isn’t any information regarding Jenna Coleman’s involvement in series 9. I guess they’re making us wait until Christmas to find out.
I’m not alone in my disappointment with the series, a Twitter hashtag #sackmoffat was launched after the disappointing series finale.
However, those involved in the show seem happy with the end result.
Danny Cohen, controller of BBC One said:
“It’s been an outstanding debut series for Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who and I’m very grateful to Peter, Steven Moffat and everyone involved.”
The Doctor can next be seen on Christmas Day.
