Two mini-eps, ‘Space’ & ‘Time’, to air for Comic Relief!
Steven Moffat has revealed more details about Doctor Who’s contribution to this year’s Comic Relief festivities!
Speaking to SFX, the showrunner confirmed that not one but two 4-minute mini-episodes will be airing during BBC One’s telethon on Friday 18th March – one called ‘Space’ and the other called ’Time’! “Two episodes. Two mini-episodes. Very, very small episodes - maybe eight minutes in total, so that’s around four minutes each,” he explained. “It’s not a spoof, so it’s taken seriously as a proper bit of Doctor Who.”
He continued: “I’m really, really pleased with them. I think they’re really good, really very funny. It’s Matt, Karen and Arthur, and there isn’t a guest character. It’s just the three of them. A moment of life aboard the TARDIS. But obviously life about the TARDIS instantly gets you into terrible jeopardy, and all of causality is threatened. As I’m sure it is every day when they get up and have their coffee…”
Two pictures from the mini-episodes were released yesterday, including one featuring two Amys, about which Moffat has teased: “There’s a moment with two Amys in it. If you’re a red-blooded male surely that’s enough! You’ve got Amy flirting with herself…”
