Steven Moffat, derzeitiger Showrunner von Doctor Who, hat ein kleines Interview zur 9. Staffel im neuesten Doctor Who Magazine gegeben.
Dort erklärt er, dass der 12. Doktor sich weiterentwickelt hat und nicht genau dort ansetzt, wo er zuletzt war.
Das ganze Interview hier im O-Ton:
“We’re not bringing him back exactly the same as we left him, at all. I think that was already evident at Christmas. He’s left some of the burden of being the superhero of the universe behind. Also, Peter magnifies anything that is dark. So I’m pushing him – I’m writing quite funny this year – I’m pushing him the other way.”
He adds: “He’s also got a Scottish gloom about him. If you gave him a Matt Smith script, it would come out very, very differently. I think it was great fun to do for a year. But no, that’s not how we’re going to play the rest of him.”
