Doctor Who: Steven Moffat On The ‘Redefining’ 50th Special

American publication The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Steven Moffat on the set of the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, and the showrunner revealed a few new tidbits on the anniversary adventure.

Moffat said:

“It’s quite a dark episode. It’s quite a serious episode. We start to move the Doctor into a place, and you’ll start to see we’ve been moving him into that direction for a while The question was: what was the most important thing that happened to the Doctor, the day the Doctor won’t forget. It will redefine him.”

“I knew what I wanted to accomplish. It is a tremendous challenge to attach 50 to anything. I wanted it to be the show that ensures the next 50 years. And it celebrates the legend.”

Moffat also stated that despite the rumours of him departing after Series 8 next year, he has no intentions of leaving just yet.

The Day of the Doctor airs on Saturday 23rd November at 7.50pm GMT worldwide and in cinemas.
