Doctor Who chief Steven Moffat and a Dalek.

Moffat: Bringing Daleks Back Was ‘Easy Decision’

With Doctor Who away from our screens longer than usual it took a special kind of villain to bring it back to our screens with a bang. For Steven Moffat, the choice was a no-brainer; it had to be the Daleks.

Doctor Who chief Steven Moffat and a Dalek.Speaking to The Independent at the BFI screening of Asylum of the Daleks Moffat said it was an ‘easy decision’ to feature the Doctor’s greatest foes in their first titular episode since Victory of the Daleks:

“We’ve been off the air for longer than usual, so it was an easy decision to come back with Doctor Who at its most iconic and that means Daleks, lots and lots of scary Daleks.”

The other big moment of this series is Amy and Rory’s departure which Karen Gillan called a ‘fantastic mutual decision’ and ‘completely the right time for Amy to leave’ before Moffat concluded that it was ‘just traumatic’ to think of the show without them:

“Amy is everything I admired, and sometimes feared, about strong, clever, reckless women, and Rory is the man I’d like to be – so strong he never has to show it.”

Moffat wasn’t the only one looking back on the Pond’s time on board the TARDIS with sadness; Matt Smith commented that:

“We knew it was coming, but just didn’t believe it. It is one of those things like when you are on holiday and you suddenly realise it is Friday and you are going home on Monday.”

Most people are back at work by the Monday, Matt, but we know what you mean…



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
