Radio Times

The new issue of Radio Times, released today, includes an interview with new Doctor Who producer Steven Moffat. A snippet is below.

Steven Moffat is Doctor Who’s new “showrunner” – the flashy American term, adopted over here, to describe a visionary writer/producer/TV seer who is charged with the creative evolution of a big series.

So what grand monsters (and tiny terrors) can we look forward to this series? Moffat doesn’t want to give too much away, but the new Doctor, Matt Smith, and his companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) are inevitably up against foes old and new, with a star-dusting of special guest-scarers, including Helen McCrory as “a sexy scary vampire-woman and Sophie Okonedo…” here Moffat pauses. As what? “I couldn’t possibly say. But she was in the trailer for the new series, and nobody noticed!”
