Steven Moffat Talks Doctor Who, Sherlock -- Vulture

Amy and Rory are gone, the Doctor is considering retirement, the new companion bears an uncanny resemblance to a dead Dalek, and evil snowmen are on the loose — now what? With less than a week until the Doctor Who Christmas special (airing December 25 at 9 on BBC America, sans Ponds, sniff), Vulture rang up series boss Steven Moffat with all our burning questions, and boy did he oblige. He spills on what’s next (the Doctor on a submarine!), why he doesn’t believe his version of Who is all that complicated, and how it would be “intolerable” for David Yates to bring the Tardis to the big-screen. Of course, we threw in a question about the delay to Sherlock. Read on to see why he pretty much told us to keep calm. 

Read on, reader.

Doctor Who Christmas special: Jenna Coleman interview with The Telegraph
If you want to know about Jenna’s backstory, this interview is the one to read. It’s also just an awesome trip to the set through the eyes of a Whovian:





It’s a very odd thing, going to the set of Doctor Who in Cardiff. For a start the BBC is so secretive about the programme’s storylines that virtually no one is allowed access, and I have to sign various forms in advance stating that I will not reveal a single thing about any of the plot I am going to witness.


I am not even sure if I am allowed to mention anything at all, but I think it’s fair to say the TARDIS is bigger than I thought it would be and the sets are more wobbly. Also, it’s freezing cold and it takes an inordinate amount of time for anything to happen. Matt Smith, aka the Doctor, leaps in and out of the TARDIS about 20 times before the action moves on. It must be, I think, an utterly exhausting programme to work on.


It is also, without doubt, phenomenally successful. The doctor and his ‘companion’ may change but as the years pass the essence of Doctor Who remains the same. It is the key to the programme’s success, the madcap secret storylines and the fact that somehow, within all the mayhem, the viewer is taken on an emotional rollercoaster. We become invested in the Doctor and in his crazy adventures.

In fact, as soon as a new Doctor is announced, people start wondering who will be his successor. The same goes for his companion.



This ‘Must Read’ is as must ready as it gets.

Has Karen offered advice on joining the show?
She’s been really supportive. … She came to the screening in New York City with Matt, and when Oswin was on screen, she texted me saying it was great. (But) from interviews I’ve seen of Karen, she was saying she didn’t want to, because she wanted me to have my own experience. I did want to be like, “What do I need to know? Tell me everything!” But she’s been really cool about it.

I do too.

I think it’s one of these things where she meets this guy that she’s incredibly interested in and by and wants to know more but there’s also something - he has answers that she wants. She wants answers. She’s on her own mission.
Doctor Who’s new assistant Jenna Coleman looks set to melt hearts this Christmas - Features - TV & Radio - The Independent
I hope you all got a nice surprise when Jenna popped up in Doctor Who several months early. If so, that surprise came to you courtesy of the frankly magnificent ladies and gentlemen of the press, and of the many Doctor Who forums and blogs too. This show has been seen at four separate screenings, across four different countries and yet not one person gave one spoiler. From all of us on Doctor Who, a heartfelt thank you for helping us tell our story.

Steven Moffat re: Jenna Coleman’s surprise appearance in ‘Doctor Who’s series 7 premiere | Radio Times

Now the big question of course is, how will Coleman return, especially considering her character’s fate at the end of tonight’s episode? (Are they going to River this up with some timey-wimey stuff?) Also, did Moffat just eradicate the Dalek-Doctor conflict for good?

Related, Coleman talks fast. Very fast.

Matt and Jenna pick out Christmas Ornaments for Each Other - Vulture Goes Shopping With Doctor Who

How well do Doctor Who's Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman know each other? Exceptionally well, if our afternoon of Christmas shopping is the true indicator. We took the pair to Manhattan's ornament-bonanza store It's Always Christmas in the City and set them off to pick out hyper-specific “bits and bobs” that fit their co-star's personality. Even though they haven't been working together very long — Coleman is officially the Doctor's new companion beginning with the show's Christmas special, airing Dec. 25 on BBC America — they succeeded in surprising each other with some very thoughtful (and strange) choices.
