Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has hinted that the show will eventually return to featuring more stand-alone episodes, rather than the current focus on long-term story arcs.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Moffat commented: “Tradition is the enemy of suspense. It’s the enemy of comedy. It’s the enemy of everything… It will always push back towards the anthology model. We’ve just amped it up to see what would happen.”

The second half of Series 6 kicks off with Moffat’s ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’ on Saturday 27th August.

Discussing the revelation in ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ that River Song is the daughter of Amy Pond and Rory Williams, the writer teased: “You think you know the truth about River. You don’t know it yet. There’s loads more to come.”

Karen Gillan added: “It’s going to take some twists and turns. All of the relationships and the whole dynamic is going to change.”
