New Moffat interview



Claims the "One 60 minute anniversary is nonsense"
As I said, I heard there was to be a live episode as well. That was a while back now, so dunno if it's still the plan.

Of course, he may mean either that there'll be more anniversary stuff in 2014 - sincenov 23rd is actually the *start* of the anniversary - or that the special will be 61 minutes long...

Was anything really officially announced? I thought all our info was just coming off of a placard at a toy fair or something.

In any event, I thought it was a pretty cool interview with Moffat. And to be honest... but I kinda have to agree with him about the Ice Warriors.

They've got a really badass name, and their concept is a good one, but I always thought their design and execution left a LOT to be desired. Even by old-school DW standards.

A placard from BBC Worldwide. If they don't know what's going on, there are bigger problems at hand in the BBC...

That's sort of my point: if there is more, then they presumably have a Clever Plan for Timetabled Announcements.
But in the meantime, other info is being put together and disappointment is building.
If there is more, they're sticking to their plan, and ignoring the thing that always messes up plans: "Events, dear boy, events." Or "Life is what happens while you're making plans."

That's true. However, the docudrama was listed on the Toy Fair placard, and the Christmas episode airs after the Christmas shopping season ends and so would be of no interest to retailers when they make their buying decisions.

Hmm. If there is more as a surprise, I think it'll be worked into the regular schedule. Maybe a two-parter with the Christmas special and/or a continuation into Season 8. As opposed to adding more specials into the time between seasons 7 & 8.

Yeah, I think it's better to build up the excitement and give an idea of what to expect (like Big Finish) than to say nothing. People start to assume the worst!

I agree and disagree in equal measure when it comes to the Ice Warriors. Having just watched the Seeds of Death I'd agree that the soldier IWs definitely need a makeover. Slaar, the Ice Lord, on the other hand, I thought that was a great look which wouldn't need much in the way of updating.

Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

So just seen an interview with JLC where she confirms that Matt Smith will be away in America for three months shooting his film, so it'll be August before they make the Christmas Special and at least September before they start shooting any of Series 8. (And that's assuming they don't need any more breaks to let Moffat finish his scripts.)

So... fall 2014, it looks like. Or another spring/fall split.

I would hope the latter.

The sad thing is they'll have only shot ONE episode in EIGHT months, during what was originally claimed was going to be the longest period of continuous production since the series came back.

There'll be a really good book in this one day, many years from now.

Even if Matt Smith did want to leave, there's no way they could film any specials for him.

It would have to be after Fall 2014 once series 8 is over. It could be the 2014 Christmas special.
