Peter Capaldi has hinted that his Doctor Who regeneration won't be like the ones we've come to expect.
And now talking to The New York Times, Capaldi has revealed that he "knows what's going to happen" and it's "more complicated" than usual.
"There's this notion now that it's the same process he's gone through every time, and that's not true. It's only the last couple of regenerations that have been, as it were, fairly straightforward ones," he explained.
"I can't go into the details of a lot of it, because I know what happens, but I don't know how it happens."
Capaldi has also praised the Doctor's new assistant Bill Potts, played by Pearl Mackie, noting how she's different from Clara (Jenna Coleman) as Bill has no knowledge of the Doctor.
"It's good, because Pearl is not particularly an expert on Doctor Who so everything is new to her, as it was to her character," he said. "It meant that she wasn't bringing any baggage to it."
Capaldi won't be the only one leaving Doctor Who after this year's Christmas special as Moffat hands over the showrunner reins to Chris Chibnall, a transition he's described as "incredibly exciting".
Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday, April 15 at 7.20pm.
