I've never encountered any production team as prone to insane hyperbole as New Who's showrunners. Does he expect fans to even believe it any more?

Past suppposed game-changers have included The Doctor's Daughter and The Wedding of River Song.

That sounds like the return of the Time Lords to me. Of course, I'm invariably wrong.

I doubt the return of the Time Lords would change the show, so much as return it to its status quo.

That said, I don't exactly exclude that possibility.

The part where he says, "We're not fibbing" cracks me up. Pretty similar to what he said about seeing the Doctor die in Impossible Astronaut!

Didn't he say exactly that about "The Name Of The Doctor"? Yawn.

Moffat trots out similar quotes on a regular basis. "The Impossible Astronaut" two-parter was supposed to be game-changing. "A Good Man Goes to War" was supposed to be game-changing. "The Wedding of River Song" was supposed to be game-changing. To the fan audience, steeped in genre television and its conventions, they're not especially game-changing.

But to the Not-We audience that the series is pitched at, those episodes are game-changing. The Doctor is killed, that's a big deal. Amy and Rory's daughter is River Song, that's a big deal. The Doctor wipes himself out of history, that's a big deal.

When Moffat talks "game-changing," he's not talking to us. He's talking to the audience that tunes in a few times a year and on Christmas Day. And for that audience, "The Day of the Doctor" will be a game-changing experience, whatever that experience is.

Moffat praises the chemistry of Tennant and Smith. He says that he wrote the tenth and eleventh Doctors to have "friction," but on camera it turned into something else, "two lovable, madcap, caffeinated Doctors, they’re also quite fanboyish" and "giggly with each other."

The video the BBC released of Tennant and Smith on set together after the broadcast of "The Name of the Doctor" showed their chemistry rather well, and I admit that I wished at the time there could be a whole series of the two Doctors.

... or maybe a slightly longer The Day of the Doctor?

Interested in the image of Tennant in his TARDIS. I really didn't think we'd get him inside his machine, at best him and Rose stepping out of it. His console set was at the Doctor Who Experience at Cardiff Bay, I wonder if they filmed it there, do they have another, or was it moved to a studio?

Said it many times... the payoff of the 50special will be a way round the regen limit.

Tennant's console room scenes were shot at the Doctor Who Experience in a single day.

Am I the only one that thinks it's kinda funny to have a 73 year old John Hurt pose like that? Who's he gonna beat up? Daleks?
