This clever tactic of revealing nothing that can be connected to anything else we’ve already been told or seen has stood The Grand Moff in good stead over the years; after all, his Doctor Who Magazine column rarely tells us anything but you can guarantee that there are secrets aplenty within.
You’ll find a similar story on the ABC TV Blog, where Steven Moffat has been talking about some of the monsters we’ll see the Doctor, Amy and Rory face during Series 6 part one…
“Last year we reassured you [but] this year to hell with that – we’re going to worry the hell out of you,” he said. “[The monsters are] scary. Very scary.
“There’s the Silence in [episodes] one and two, the Siren in episode three, the Gangers in five and six, [and] all these are more than just freaky costumes and masks. There are scary ideas here.”
Meanwhile, something that looks set to be the biggest story arc that Doctor Who has attempted in its entire history is ready to kick off in the early stages of The Impossible Astronaut!
“Oh, there’s a big story being told this year, and major mysteries from the very off,” he confirmed. “We’re barely ten minutes into episode one before our heroes face a dilemma that they’ll be staring at months from now. And there will be no easy answers.”
