Moffat on Doctor Who 50th: Can’t be “about looking backwards”

by on Mar.21, 2013, under Television

The new Entertainment Weekly features two different covers for Doctor Who (see them here, courtesy of Blogtor Who), but the more interesting bit came from the article inside, in which producer Steven Moffat was quoted as saying about the upcoming 50th Anniversary, “We can’t make this all about looking backwards. It’s actually got to be the start of a new story.”

This appears to be in relation to the desire among fans to have something like “The Eleven Doctors” special, featuring all living Doctors and somehow accommodating the deceased ones as well. But that’s a tall order to try and squeeze into an episode – even a super-sized one. But reading in to it more, I’m wondering about “…a new story.” Would a 50th Anniversary episode be used to kick off something new? Like, perhaps, a rumored new Doctor?!?
