Doctor Who thing of the day: Steven Moffat teases Series 7

Doctor Who The Brilliant Book 2012

In the just-released Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2012 [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.], Steven Moffat offers us a few hints about what’s to come next year… or whenever we get some new episodes (via Doctor Who TV):

On the Doctor’s fame: “We’re going to explore that properly next series. The Doctor’s project is to sort of erase himself from history because there’s only so many times you can stand and boast at Stonehenge”

On the heavier story arc: “I don’t think Doctor Who will ever be as arc-driven again”

Due to the increased interest from the title ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’, Moffat has told the writers to really “slut it up” and “write it like a movie poster. Let’s do big, huge, mad ideas”

On Amy, Rory and River: “I do have an end game for all of them”

On River: “You realise you’ve learned nothing. She may or may not be married to the Doctor, depending on whether that was actually a marriage ceremony, or whether it counts if he’s inside a giant robot replica of himself”

On his future as showrunner: “Even though I’m more tired than I’ve ever been, I don’t feel any impulse to leave”

As always with Moffat, take everything he says with a grain of salt… and as he notes here, even when he does something Big — like finally telling us about River — he doesn’t even really do that, either.
