Steven Moffat has announced that he’s come up with a new monster for Series 7 of Doctor Who and has promised that it will deliver the scares that we’re all expecting.
Writing on Twitter, the show runner Tweeted:
We’ve already got the return of every Dalek ever, a strange looking cyborg in the Wild West, Weeping Angels, the departure of Amy and Rory forever, a trip to New York and the arrival of a new friend for the Doctor in the form of Jenna Louise-Coleman and that’s only the first six episodes!
Moffat has been responsible for creating not only some of Doctor Who’s creepiest monsters (gas mask zombies, clockwork killers, Weeping Angels, the Silence and the Headless Monks) but also some of its most wonderful episodes (The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, Blink, The Eleventh Hour and Let’s Kill Hitler) so if anyone can invent a creature for the show that’s guaranteed to send you hiding behind the sofa, it’s him.
Since the first half of Series 7 is already in the bag, it would be not unreasonable to presume that the monster he’s come up with will be for the 2013 batch of episodes but whether he’ll be writing the episode itself or has given it as a brief to another writer will have to wait to be seen.
