The Doctor is back in session. According to a recent interview with the Observer, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat says he is “just embarking” work on season 10 of the popular sci-fi series.
The series is currently in the midst of its ninth season and recently aired a special two-part episode with Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams. While there has been no official confirmation of a tenth season for the series, this interview and the fact that Doctor Who is one of the BBC’s most successful and longest-running shows is a pretty positive indication.
In addition to the news on season 10, Moffat also discussed the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special, which will feature the return of River Song.
From Moffat, on the Christmas episode:
That’s been a riot to do. That’s been sort of a big fun chase episode, really. Just Mr and Mrs Who battling their way past nonsense and that’s been great fun. Alex [Kingston] is always great value.”
