Steven Moffat has said that it was “time to get rid of” old Doctor Who.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, Moffat said: “It was time to change. Certain things we were doing a little reflexively. Some of the humour was getting a bit glib. One of the hardest things to notice is when your new idea has become your old idea and it’s time to get rid of it.”
Jenna Coleman added: “It’s amazing how different it feels. It’s darker. The limits feel like they’re being pushed more in terms of the danger and the dread. It’s scarier, that’s for sure.”
Coleman said one of the bigger changes is the pace of the stories: “A producer once told me this is the hardest job because you’re creating characters and telling stories while always on the run. But Steven’s changed the format quite a lot. We have much longer scenes now.”
Ben Wheatley, director of the first two episodes, said: “For me, they’re back to Classic Who, or the mid-Tennant adventures, where you’d tell a story and move on to the next one, less tied up in the final machinations of long plot arcs.
“Capaldi’s his own man but there are elements of Baker and Troughton and Pertwee. He’s inherently funny but inherently brooding and complicated, as a performer and a man.”
Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August on BBC One.

Endless list of things that should have been in the movies
↳ Prisoner of Azkaban, p 120

“Then you should know, Potter, that Sybill Trelawney has predicted the death of one student a year since she arrived at this school. None of them has died yet. Seeing death omens is her favourite way of greeting a new class.”

Wait wait wait

so there was a theory bouncing around that Trelawney was actually scary accurate, right?

What if every student she predicted died in the battle for Hogwarts?

THATS JUST WHAT I WAS THINKING

I’m done.

*sobs*

It’s interesting because if you go back and reread the books, every single one of Trelawney’s predictions, even the really ridiculous ones, came true. So this is actually not only possible but highly probable.

Doctor Who Fest: day #10

↳ “What is the most Epic Scene in Doctor Who? : The Doctors on a cloud

Clara sometimes asks me if I dream. "Of course I dream", I tell her. "Everybody dreams". "But what do you dream about?," she'll ask. "The same thing everybody dreams about," I tell her. "I dream about where I'm going." She always laughs at that. "But you're not going anywhere, you're just wandering about." That's not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone's. It's taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I'm going. Where I've always been going. Home. The long way around.
