Peter Capaldi Will Go Solo In Experimental ‘Doctor Who’ Episode

This move has nothing to do with budget cuts from the BBC. The move to have the Doctor go solo is an intentional one.

Peter Capaldi is to be given the ultimate test of acting by doing the first ever solo ‘Doctor Who’ story, in which he’ll have no support from other casts. It will be just Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and nothing else.

Confirming recent rumours, Steven Moffat has announced that Peter Capaldi will star in a special ‘one hander’ episode – featuring no characters other than the Doctor.

This move has nothing to do with budget cuts from the BBC. The move to have the Doctor go solo is an intentional one.

“We always like a new challenge on the show,” Moffat said. “I can’t tell you too much about this, but it’s certainly unique and a big first for the show!”

Steven Moffat the shows executive producer and head writer has also hinted that the new 12 episode run will include “urban thrillers, underwater ghost stories [and] journeys that take us from Vikings to the end of time”.

Doctor Who will return to BBC One on Saturday, September 19 – with Jenna Coleman (Clara) returning alongside Capaldi.

Guest stars for the series include Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, actor and comic Rufus Hound and Inside No. 9‘s Reece Shearsmith, while Michelle Gomez will also reprise her role as Missy.
