Peter Capaldi is ‘on amazing form’ in new season of ‘Doctor Who’

Posted Filed under

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has been chatting about what to expect when the show return this autumn.

Season 9 began filming in Cardiff in January.

Speaking to DS about the new episodes at this week’s BAFTA nominations party, Moffat teased: “We always move it on. I don’t think we’ve ever done two consecutive series exactly the same. But [this year] it’s the same two stars.”

He added: “[Peter Capaldi] is on amazing form at the moment. I was looking at some of his first series stuff and thinking ‘it’s magnificent, but it’s nothing compared to what he’s doing now’.”

The writer hinted at what’s coming up for Jenna Coleman as Clara too: “[Clara’s journey in Season 9] is very pronounced. I can’t say too much about it. She continues to complicate and that relationship between the two of them is incredibly strong.”

Moffat has also discussed the shift towards more two-part stories in the new season.
