Peter Capaldi has suggested he might not return to Doctor Who after handing over the keys for the TARDIS to Jodie Whittaker this Christmas.

At the San Francisco Comic Con 2017, the Twelfth Doctor said he wasn’t too fond of stories that invite back former Doctors, and said he would prefer to put some distance between him and the show once his tenure comes to an end.

When asked by an audience member if he’d return to the BBC drama for a multi-Doctor story, Capaldi said, “I think when you should go, you should go. Even when I was a kid I believed [the Doctor] was this weird and wonderful thing, so if he kept showing up all the time in Big Finish or in multi Doctor stories he was more available.”

He concluded: “I don’t know. Maybe. But not for a while.” Watch the video below to see his full panel appearance.
