Peter Capaldi commences his tenure as The Doctor this summer and Steven Moffat has hinted that there are some significant changes coming to the show! Digital Spy reports that while at Hay Festival, Moffat has promised the show will be “surprising again” and avoid becoming too formulaic.
“We haven’t made much of change to Doctor Who since it came back in 2005. It’s been the same show. It’s maybe amped some things up and lowered some other things, but it’s basically the same.
“I just felt it needs to be a bit more different now. It’s needs to be surprising again!” he said of his decision to cast an older actor.
Moffat also said that casting a “handsome, yet quirky, young man with entertaining hair” would have resulted in the long-running sci-fi series becoming too formulaic.
