What are the chances of Peter Jackson directing an episode?
“The door is open, it’s entirely possible.”
Similarly, a return for Romana?
“I have actually given no thought at all to Romana. The Time Lords are dead in my mind. They died.”
Will Peter Capaldi’s Doctor have a Scottish accent?
“I’d be very surprised if he didn’t”
On the importance of Rose Tyler.
“When the show came back, I think it really was Billie Piper who brought it back. Those first two years, that was Billie Piper’s show. It became David Tennant’s show in the third year but it was all about Billie, and Billie as Rose. And Russell [T Davies, former showrunner] was clever in writing that character and casting that character so perfectly. Seriously, in the first two years, that was Billie Piper’s show.”
Regarding the casting of an older actor being cast as the next Doctor
(Peter Capaldi, in case you’d forgotten), Frank Skinner suggested: “I
hope it will stop Steven’s temptation to make it all flirty between The
Doctor and the companion,” to which Steven Moffat replied sarcastically,
“Yeah, ‘cos older blokes – they just don’t ever flirt with girls, do
they?” Skinner also suggested that Dorium Maldovar would be a brilliant companion.
“You really do want to reduce the flirting! I love the character. We
would bring him back if we had a good story for him. But he’s just a
head in a box, which could make it slightly limiting. [Laughs]”
