Matt Smith stars in the Doctor Who 2012 Christmas special

The Doctor’s Dark Place

As we all know, Doctor Who is usually about the companions and how they deal with the challenge of travelling through space and time. But every now and again we need to look at the Doctor himself and see how his lifestyle affects him.

One such example is Waters of Mars; another, it seems from a new Steven Moffat interview with Digital Spy, is this year’s Christmas special, The Snowmen.

“It’s rare that you get to do moments like this in Doctor Who where you get to talk about the impact of his lifestyle on him – it’s usually about the companion… It’s going to affect him now and then and he’s a right old misery at the beginning because he’s suffered a really quite traumatic loss.

You can watch the interview below (assuming it’s working…)
