Steven Moffat’s son Joshua, aka Armytedd, has interviewed his father again in a video on his Youtube account. This time the questions are provided by the Youtube community.

Towards the end Steven says he is in the process of writing the 50th anniversary and brings up the The Five Doctors, specifically speaking about how excited he was by the returning Doctors, companions and monsters.

He adds: “It’s different for me now because I’m writing the 50th right now; that’s my current project. It’s half exciting and it’s half absolutely terrifying because I know how excited people are and I feel tremendous pressure not to let them down.

“Normally on Doctor Who I think that no one episode can be everything to everybody. You write one or someone else writes one and you think ‘not everyone is going to like it.’ You can’t please everybody all the time and it’s a mistake in a way to try. But you don’t want anybody to feel let down by a big anniversary episode. So that’s very hard. That’s the one when you want to turn to the entire audience and say ‘this one is for you.'”
