Doctor Who exec Steven Moffat has hinted that, following 2015’s run of two-part stories, the next season’s format will be “something else”.
Season 9 featured four two-part stories – ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’ / ‘The Witch’s Familiar’ by Steven Moffat, ‘Under the Lake’ / ‘Before The Flood’ by Toby Whithouse, ‘The Girl Who Died’ / ‘The Woman Who Lived’ by by Jamie Mathieson & Steven Moffat and Catherine Tregenna, and ‘The Zygon Invasion’ / ‘The Zygon Inversion’ by Peter Harness.
Writer Steven Moffat told Doctor Who Magazine: “Each year, we try to do something different – almost out of perversity, to make things more difficult for ourselves – so that we’re not getting into a groove, we’re not becomingly boringly expert at it, because there’s nothing so boring as when you get slick.”
The showrunner added: “I was very happy to get rid of two-parters when I did, and [in Season 9 I was] very happy to bring them back.”
He teased: “Something else will happen [in Season 10].”
The new season of Doctor Who is due to begin filming in May and is expected to launch with 2016’s Christmas special.
Peter Capaldi recently revealed that he hasn’t yet been invited to be in BBC Three’s upcoming Doctor Who spin-off, Class.
