Steven Moffat Discusses Hurt Doctor’s Genesis
So, just who is the John Hurt Doctor? What is he, where does he come from and how does he impact that life of our favourite Time Lord? Since he appeared at the end of The Name of the Doctor, this hitherto unknown incarnation has set comment threads and web forums a-chatter.
Speaking to SFX issue 241 – out on Wednesday – Steven Moffat offered some of his thoughts into the background for this incarnation, where he comes from (in a purely creative sense, you understand).
You’d want him to come and say ‘What in the name of God have I turned into?’ That’s the confrontation that you most want to see, to celebrate 50 years.
That sounds pretty interesting, doesn’t it?
Moffat then continues, referencing things that we think we know already thanks to The Name of the Doctor…
Well, here he is, facing the children he becomes, as it were.
