Steven Moffat on Doctor Who new series: “We can stop shocking the audience”   Leave a comment

Steven Moffat on Doctor Who new series: The BBC sci-fi drama’s showrunner said that now Peter Capaldi has established himself in the role of The Doctor, the show “can stop shocking the audience with Capaldi moments”

Speaking to SFX, Moffat said: “I was looking for the Capaldi moments every episode, saying ‘We need a Capaldi moment, that momentwhere he’s not Matt Smith, he’s not David Tennant, where he’s a dangerous, unpredictable, volatile character’.”

He continued: “Because that slaps the audience awake, in a way. The longer you do a show the cosier it gets, the cosier it gets the nearer to death it gets. You really have to say to people ‘Pay attention. He’s far more unpredictable than that’.

“So now, having done that, and having blasted our new Doctor at them, we can go other places with him. We don’t have to work at that anymore because people just accept him.”

Moffat added: “I won’t be looking for the Capaldi moment next year because the whole show is a Capaldi moment.”
