Moffat’s Paris Comic-Con Interview

Our favourite DoctorWhoPhile Aurélie Demonchaux has been back in touch with more information concerning Steven Moffat’s recent appearance at the Paris Comic-Con event.

First of all you should give this video by 8artcity a viewing – it compiles highlights from Steven Moffat’s day at the Comic Con, and includes the fans’ enthusiastic welcome, extracts from the Masterclass, the Doctor Who screening, the Doctor Who conference and even the signing session.

Meanwhile, Aurelie is a member of the popular French Doctor Who site/forum Beans on Toast, and they were lucky enough to grab  an interview with The Grand Moff. The transcription of the interview is in French, however, so you’ll need to polish off your copies of “Tricolore”…

The interview covers several cool topics such as :

  • the creation of River Song’s character
  • Rory’s deaths
  • Captain Jack
  • how Neil Gaiman came to work on Doctor Who + the possibility of Neil Gaiman writing another episode for the series.

As to the Neil Gaiman question, sadly there is no exact and 100% accurate transcript in English, since Moffat’s answers were directly translated into French from the audio and with English not being Aurelie’s Mother tongue, she opted to avoid another “misquote and misunderstanding” thing.

However, Steven Moffat does mention how Series 7 is going, and as such Aurelie has kindly provided the chance to hear his exact words via a short clip from the recorded audio interview.
