Doctor Who will return with 'new hunger for adventure'

'Doctor Who' will return to TV screens with a "new hunger for adventure".

The ninth series of the iconic sci-fi programme will see Peter Capaldi reprise the role of the Time Lord and he's given fans of the show an idea as to what they can expect from the much-anticipated new season.

He shared: "Soaring through all of time and space, series nine sees the Doctor throw himself into life with a new hunger for adventure.

"The Cosmos is there for the taking, thrilling, epic and enticing, and his to play in.

"But he's almost reckless in his abandon. It's almost like he's running from something, something that if it ever catches him will turn his life upside down."

Meanwhile, Peter recently revealed he is desperate for Jenna Coleman to stay in 'Doctor Who'.

The actress plays his on-screen companion Clara Oswald and is often linked with a move away from the show - but Peter, 57, is eager for her to stick around.

He said: "Jenna continues to deliver a complex and funny performance that marks her out as one of the best companions ever.

"Will these be her last shows? I hope not."
