“It’s a huge honour to write for Doctor Who at any time, to be writing Peter Capaldi’s second adventure is that to infinity! I can’t wait to get on to set!”

Steven Moffat has said he is unsure whether to bring back River Song for Series 8.

Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat said: “It’s always down to whether there’s a good story. My immediate instinct was that story’s probably done. Not that we saw all of it, but I never thought we should see all of it.”

I’m slightly tempted, because I imagine Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be absolutely hilarious together…”

“She could certainly have met other Doctors,” he added. “So there’s nothing stopping us… But is there anything new we can do? Or is the new thing that Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be very sexy together? Is that enough? We’ve always had fun with the fact that they don’t look like a couple.”

“Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would look like a couple – that’s the thing. Whereas I thought Matt and Alex were gorgeous together, but it looked slightly strange, because he was so much younger.”

“Alex is just great fun to have on the show. It’s when you want to throw the Doctor a bit, because what River does so well is to make him a bit on the back foot and a bit flustered.”

Steven Moffat has said that Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will be “dangerous and difficult.”
Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat said: “There would be little point in making as radical a change as we’ve made unless you’re going to go quite different with the Doctor.”
“The last two Doctors [David Tennant and Matt Smith] have been brilliant, and have been your ‘good boyfriend’ Doctors. But the Doctor isn’t always like that.”
“There is the sort of Tom Baker, Christopher Eccleston end of the spectrum, where he is mad and dangerous and difficult.”
“If we’d cast Ben Whishaw, you’d know what we were doing,” he said.
“You’d think, ‘Well, that’s another quirky young man with entertaining hair!’ And he’d be a brilliant Doctor, but Clara would just think, ‘Okay, you’ve rearranged yourself a bit…’”
“I think it was time for the show to flip around a bit. The new version of the show is quite old now. It’s very old…”
“We need the kick-up-the-arse Doctor, in a way, to frighten you and make you think, oh, it’s a different show again.”
