Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi will shoot his final moments as the Doctor this summer.
It was announced in January that the Thick of It star would be leaving Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas special alongside departing showrunner Steven Moffat.
Season 10 finished filming last week and the show’s cast and crew will now take a break before production begins on this year’s festive episode.
The Sunday Times reports that Capaldi’s final day of filming as the Twelfth Doctor will take place in July.
Capaldi told the newspaper: “I’ve cried already – no, not really. But they’re such a nice group of people here, I’ll miss them terribly. And, you know, it’s the end of something. I’ve never done anything for three years before.”
He added: “Also, it’s a kind of magical thing, Doctor Who. It’s connected to my childhood and it brings this very warm response from people, children and fans of all different stripes. But then it’s over.”
Peter Capaldi has hinted that his Doctor’s demise won’t be as “straightforward” as recent regenerations and also recently revealed the reasons behind his decision to leave.
Season 10 begins at 7.20pm on Saturday 15 April on BBC One with ‘The Pilot’.
