Peter Capaldi to leave ‘Doctor Who’

Hello everyone! 🙂

I just like to share some thoughts on the latest news about ‘Doctor Who’!

Peter Capaldi is leaving ‘Doctor Who’! Whoa! This is a bit of surprise I’m sure to all you ‘Doctor Who’ fans! I’m saddened that Peter Capaldi is leaving as the Twelfth Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’.

Hello everyone! 🙂

It’s the 36th anniversary of Nyssa of Traken in ‘Doctor Who’ today! It’s also the 1st anniversary since ‘The Nyssa Challenge’ began on ‘Bradley’s Basement’! How amazing is that?!

As part of ‘The Nyssa Challenge’ this week, here’s a return to the ‘Doctor Who’ Companion Chronicle starring Sarah Sutton as Nyssa called ‘The Darkening Eye’! 🙂
