Steven Moffat Talks DOCTOR WHO Season 7, Writing the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes, and More
via Collider:


When Doctor Who returns to BBC America on March 30th, the Doctor (Matt Smith) kicks off this new run of adventures through space and time by searching for his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman), a mysterious girl that he’s already lost twice.  Together they find themselves battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chasing terrifying ghosts, delving into the heart of the TARDIS, facing the Crimson Horror in Victorian Yorkshire, and coming face-to-face with an army of upgraded Cybermen.  The action grows and the Doctor’s oldest secret threatens to be revealed, as the world’s longest running science fiction series builds toward its highly anticipated 50th anniversary in November.
During this recent interview to promote the upcoming episodes, executive producer/lead writer Steven Moffat talked about what Jenna Coleman brings to the series, what made Clara the right companion for the Doctor, his favorite upcoming episodes, which monsters were the most fun to write, the impetus for bringing the Ice Warriors back, his approach to writing characters as iconic as the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes (he’s co-creator on Sherlock with Mark Gatiss), the biggest challenges and surprises in this set of upcoming episodes, what makes Doctor Who so universal, and the fact that he’s pretty confident that they’ll be able to deliver something great for the 50th anniversary.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Steven Moffat talks Trenzalore, Fem!Doctor, & River Song
It’s a great Q&A. Blogtor Who has audio of the event here.


On March 1, Steven Moffat was a guest of Trinity College, Dublin and took part in an interview and Q & A session - listen to it in the player below. In it he talks about Press Gang, Sherlock, Tintin and, of course, Doctor Who. When asked about the return of River Song in the upcoming series, Moffat said, “Yes. She will certainly be in this series,” whilst also saying, when prompted, “Is there more to come about, as it were, Trenzalore and the battle in the Doctor’s future that led to the attempts on his life in the past? Is that what you’re asking? Yes.”On the possibility of Russell T Davies of writing a story for the show, the current showrunner said, “He won’t write one for me.” The writer also states that he would happily have a Neil Gaiman story every year, discusses the lack of female writers on the show and outlines what he thinks would happen should The Doctor and Sherlock ever meet. The topic of a female Doctor also arises - “more people are saying yes - which I find fascinating.”
