The details of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who contract have been let slip by Steven Moffat.
Capaldi, 55, will initially be on a one year deal for Series 8 which will be split into two halves of six episodes, the Christmas special making a total of 13 episodes produced in 2014. This is contrary to earlier rumours that the series would broadcast in its entirety in the autumn of 2014.
After that Capaldi will either sign a further contract or leave the show after one series like Christopher Eccleston, depending on his popularity. It is not unusual of more experienced actors to be on shorter term contracts however.
