Can it be? Is this true? Rumor has it Peter Capaldi is going to be a one season pony?!
Now, this might all be hearsay. We shouldn’t jump the gun. But Zap2It released that this might just be the case.
“Capaldi is rumored to be a one-season doctor, in order to steer the show in a new direction.”
That’s right, I’m shaking my fist and yelling twice!
What the hell, man? You can’t just jerk around our emotions like this! Just last week I had a Nine/Rose dream, so clearly I invest in these characters on a very deep emotional and even subconscious level; you can’t just give me a new Doctor and rip him away like that!
Hopefully this is all false. The lid was clamped pretty tightly on the 50th anniversary special, so perhaps this rumor was “meant to leak” in order to raise the hair on everyone’s neck.
But at the same time, this is kind of sad. Do I need to go into series 8 with battle armor so I don’t get broken? Will Twelve even be likable and this is why he’s going to be replaced so soon? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO THINK?!
The Mirror seems to have a pretty calm and cool grip on things:
“[…]recent rumours and gossip suggest that Peter Capaldi was selected as a ‘single season Doctor’ in order to steer the show in a new direction and pave the way for an even more radical (and possibly more controversial) choice for the role.
Could it be? Well, yes, it could. But every Doctor Who fan knows to file these sorts of rumours under: “Approach with caution”.”
Perhaps this is all going to work out.
