‘Doctor Who’ exec promises ‘a lot of different things’ for anniversary

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat described the plans for the show’s 50th annivesary as “hugely exciting”.

Speaking to Ed Stradling at the Gallifrey 2013 convention in Los Angeles on Sunday, Moffat revealed: “[We’ve got] a lot of different things going on. Don’t believe the nonsense about one 60-minute film, that is complete nonsense. We’ve got a lot of things coming up for that. It’s hugely exciting.”

Discussing the difficulties of shooting the 50th anniversary special in 3D, the writer commented: “I think it poses every kind of logistical problem! You can imagine it takes much longer to shoot. Every CGI shot has to be done twice. It’s a proper old headache. But wouldn’t it be kind of awful if some other show was the first one to be 3D? It has to Doctor Who, hasn’t it?”

Series 7 Part 2 begins on Saturday 30 March on BBC One and BBC America.
