‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: Steven Moffat talks ‘A Christmas Carol’

To The New York Times, no less:

Q. When did you film this episode?

A. When did we actually do it? Back in July. It was a long time ago.

Q. Was it strange trying to get into a holiday spirit in the middle of the summer?

A. Yeah, especially because I was writing it in April. I’d flown to Los Angeles while we were going on interviews [for the United States season premiere of “Doctor Who”] and got stuck there by the volcano. L.A. is just the least Christmasy place on earth. So I turned up the air-conditioning and played Christmas music to try to get in the frame of mind. But I’m used to thinking on different planets. Thinking about a different time of year wasn’t so bad. It was the smallest amount of time travel “Doctor Who” ever had to do.

There’s lots more about the Christmas episode, the upcoming season, and more, including some stuff about Sherlock and whether he will ever meet the Doctor.

Frankly, I’m not sure I want The New York Times talking about Doctor Who. That’s a sure sign that it’s going mainstream and will soon be boring.
