Spoiler:
Doctor Who

British tabloid the Mirror claims sources have told them that, due to flagging merchandise sales, season 11—the first under new showrunner Chris Chibnall—will be a total “clean slate” with both Peter Capaldi and incoming companion Pearl Mackie departing the show at the end of 2017, to be replaced by a “younger Doctor” á la David Tennant, and a new female companion.

Don't take it seriously. It's only the Mirror.

Well, then. I guess I don't know your papers too well.

There's no reason why you should. They're all full of rubbish.

Cynical, moi?

The only official word we've had is that Capaldi was asked to stay on some time ago.

Nah, MOST of them are. Too many journalists don't bother knowing what they're reporting on in any depth. Although, tv news is often worse.

I'm glad. I've grown to like him a lot. Not that I'm not used to them leaving, but I think he's got more good stories left in him.

I would hesitate to describe anyone employed by The Mirror, or any of the oher redtops, as a "journalist". Mostly, these days they just seem to cobble together stories from unfounded speculation on the internet.

I don't think he's actually made up his mind, yet.

It has to be what's right for him. I'll be gutted when he leaves, but I wouldn't want him to stay on in such a physically and emotionally demanding role if it had become more of a burden than a pleasure. That'd be like me going to a family party to please my parents, and then spending the entire evening sitting in a corner feeling miserable.

Like, he should stay for as long as he enjoys it.

True. I've even seen my local news "reporting" on internet memes. That was a bit much.
