Re: Moffat Talks 13th, sorry, 12th Doctor
There's more from the DWM article.
"...We've had- in a row- two fabulously successful, wonderful, youthful, adorable, accessible Doctors. But he's not always like that. So we were sort of thinking, you can flip him. You know, he's either the senior consultant who's secretly the undergraduate, or he's the undergraduate who's secretly the senior consultant. Those are the sort of poles of Doctorishness. He's always both, but it's which face is he showing more. But I'm saying this without actually knowing quite what Peter's going to do with it."
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
