Who’s the Boss, David?

So – it’s all around the web by now, but if you don’t know – David Tennant calls Steven Moffatt his "new boss" in the commentary between the two on the forthcoming Doctor Who Series 4 boxset release.

And of course the reaction is – why would he use that term if he was leaving?

According to Den of Geek:

• David Tennant refers to Steven Moffat as his "new boss", and their discussion indicates that they are already working together.

• The Grand Moff prefers two-parters but this will not affect how he approaches the series.

• When asked if the title sequence for series 5 will change, the incoming show-runner jokes, "Should his face be in it?"

• The written (but not filmed) ‘Shadow Proclamation’ scene in The Stolen Earth, featuring monsters from throughout the series, has been requested by David to appear in one of the specials.

Frankly yes – his face should be in it. These BBC folk seem to think it would be in some way cheesey. I on the other hand reckon a suitably astonished face would hark back to the Tom Baker era. You knew you were in for some scares in the next twenty minutes in those days.
