Doctor Who's Peter Capaldi wouldn't want to return for multi-Doctor story

Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi has explained why he isn't interested in returning for a special episode.

After portraying the iconic Time Lord across three series (four years in total), the Scotsman most recently moved over to comic book fare with The Suicide Squad, alongside Hollywood royalty like Margot Robbie, Viola Davis and Idris Elba.

However, Whovians hoping that Capaldi might show up with other franchise alumni for a multi-Doctor adventure in the future may be out of luck.

"I wouldn't really fancy that," he revealed on BBC Radio's Sunday with Steven Rainey.

"There are so many Doctors now. I'm quite happy with what I did, you know. I loved my time on Doctor Who, but I think the more of the multi-Doctor stories you have the less effective they are, really."

During his exit interviews, Capaldi originally commented: "I really never wanted to get to a place where I knew how to do this, because that's not what being creative is.

"The actual amount of time we were spending on the show, I realised I was getting the hang of it. And that made me frightened."

Doctor Who airs on BBC One in the UK. In the US, the show airs on BBC America, with series 1-12 available on HBO Max. Series 13 is due to premiere later this year.
