Moffat on Series 7 Autumn Move
Series 7 of Doctor Who isn’t being moved to Autumn just because Steven Moffat doesn’t like it airing in Summer. That was only some of the reason for the delay. There is a grander plan at work.
Speaking in the new Doctor Who Magazine he said: “For me, as a kid, when the afternoons got darker and there was a thrill of cold in the air, I knew that even though summer was over, the TARDIS was coming back. So yes, that’s part of the reason for this little delay. But it’s not the whole story.
“Very soon now, Doctor Who is going to enter production for the longest sustained period we’ve ever attempted, and the biggest and best and maddest time ever to be a fan of this wonderful old show is rumbling towards us. And yes, you got me. We needed a little more time to prepare for everything we’ve got planned. That, above all, is why we needed this tiny gap. Just be a tiny bit patient, and trust me, we’ll make it up to you.”
