It turns out that Steven Moffat had always planned the Who finale and wasnâ€™t just making it up as he went along! Who knew!?
Unlike his â€˜bumblyâ€™ Doctor, the Head Writer/Executive Producer – who had the unenviable task of rewriting the entire universe for this Saturday’s The Big Bang – told Digital Spy that he always knew exactly how the series would turn out.
“I had aspects of it,” he said. “I had certain things I needed to get to, and I had an overarching idea that would, and I suppose it’s better to talk about it after next week’s episode. There are certain things you’ll see that have been there from the beginning.
“There’s been quite a careful planning of things, which is pretty obvious from episode 12, that everything was set up and paid off there. There’s more coming next week, in the event that anyone comes out of the Pandorica.”
The Grand Moff also said even though the episode does wrap up the loose ends there is also lots that is â€˜brand newâ€™.
However what that might entail for Saturday’s episode – he isnâ€™t saying…
“Well, there’s going to be some light music and a short note of apology saying, ‘The universe ended last week, we’re really sorry, we don’t know what you’re doing here, didn’t you get the message?’”
Doctor Who concludes with The Big Bang this Saturday 18:05 BBC 1 and BBC HD.
