‘Doctor Who’ exec: ‘I’m probably done with the Weeping Angels’

Posted Filed under

The Weeping Angels were last seen in ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’ last September.

Moffat told Nerd³ in a recent video interview: “I’m probably done to be honest on what you can do with the Weeping Angels. But other writers have to have a go. There’s only so many times you can think, ‘Right, it’s a chase scene and statues’. How many times can the lights flicker? What happens if a moth sees them? Is the alien invasion cancelled at that point?”

He added, however, that another writer has recently pitched a Weeping Angels story to him: “It’s not going to happen but a very good Doctor Who writer pitched a great idea for the Weeping Angels the other day and I was very excited about it. We had a long phone call about it and I went away thinking, ‘That is going to be brilliant!’ And about two days later he admitted he wasn’t going to have time to do it. Hopefully we’ll get to it in the next year.”

Moffat has also revealed that there will be a “quite neat” reason for Twelfth Doctor actor Peter Capaldi’s previous appearances in Doctor Who and Torchwood as different characters.
