Moffat Hinting at Christmas Revelations?
The Fall of the Eleventh may also topple some long-standing questions!In the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine (#465, the one with the very nifty five Doctors cover), Steven Moffat breezily brings up some “What-What-WHATs?” from his tenure as showrunner that may finally see some answers…
“Oh, never mind the TARDIS blowing up, what about the endless, bitter war Kovarian was on about? And what’s Trenzalore? And the oldest question in the universe? And what exactly do they mean, silence will fall? Anyway, I’m off to a readthrough…”
A person always has to take Moffat’s comments with a grain of salt, but at least this is promising. I’m not embarrassed to admit that I’m still a bit confused when it comes to some of the plot elements in series five and six. It was hard enough trying to keep track of River’s identity and timeline–not to mention trying to keep count of how many times Rory could die!
One question has to be asked, though: Did The Grand Moff always plan to answer these questions with the inevitable exit of Matt Smith’s Eleven, or have fans and others persuaded him to finally tie up some of these mysteries? Whatever the case, hopefully we will find out the answers to these questions–and more!–when the Christmas Special airs, well, this Christmas.
