Speaking on tonight's episode of The Graham Norton Show – where he'll be joining the host for a chat alongside Hollywood legend Warren Beatty, Keeley Hawes and Jennifer Hudson – Capaldi kept predictably quiet about the upcoming series, save that one detail.
"I can tell you that I have recorded the death of my character," he said, "but I can't tell you anything else."
Of course, when Capaldi announced he was leaving the show back in January, we were all expecting Doctor Who to keep up the tradition of saying goodbye to the Doctor in the Christmas special.
But seeing as this year's Christmas special has yet to start filming, and Capaldi's already filmed his Doctor's "death", does that mean we can expect to see the next Doctor sooner rather than later?
Well, we were warned that this regeneration would be more "complicated" than the last few.
Also on Graham Norton tonight, Peter Capaldi discusses his decision to leave the series at the three-year mark and stands by the choice, just like David Tennant and Matt Smith before him.
"It's bye bye," he said. "Doctor Who is a great job but it is TV factory with so many episodes and I would worry that I wouldn't do my best work with the same vigour and fun.
"I've left it while I am still enjoying it. Three years is probably enough because people get wiped out by it."
The Graham Norton Show airs tonight (April 14) at 10.35 pm on BBC One, while Doctor Who returns tomorrow at 7.20pm.
