While it might not have a Doctor Who cover, this is one issue of the Radio Times that will be hard to miss, with former model and “It” girl Sophie Dahl looking radiant on the front cover.
Here’s what the Radio Times would let us publish:
Steven Moffat is Doctor Whoâ€™s new â€œshowrunnerâ€ â€“ the flashy American term, adopted over here, to describe a visionary writer/producer/TV seer who is charged with the creative evolution of a big series.
So what grand monsters (and tiny terrors) can we look forward to this series? Moffat doesnâ€™t want to give too much away, but the new Doctor, Matt Smith, and his companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) are inevitably up against foes old and new, with a star-dusting of special guest-scarers, including Helen McCrory as â€œa sexy scary vampire-woman and Sophie Okonedoâ€¦â€ here Moffat pauses. As what? â€œI couldnâ€™t possibly say. But she was in the trailer for the new series, and nobody noticed!â€
