Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has responded to fan’s query requesting a multi-Doctor story featuring Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor.
Fan Steve Dunn wrote in to the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, saying: “Please do [a multi-Doctor story with] the Eighth Doctor with the Twelfth Doctor.”
Moffat replied: “A multi-Doctor story is best contemplated from the position of not having to write one. The one time I’ve done it [‘The Day of the Doctor’], I found it rancidly difficult and awful.”
He explained: “…what I kept saying to people at the time was this: ‘There’s a reason there’s usually only one Doctor in Doctor Who.'”
McGann revealed earlier this year that he feels like “there’s still a bit of potential” for the Eighth Doctor to appear onscreen again. He commented: “It feels like it ain’t quite over…”
Moffat’s final season of Doctor Who has been filming in Cardiff since June and will begin airing on BBC One in April 2017.
