Steven reveals series is “quite different” with Jenna
Steven Moffat has revealed that Doctor Who feels “different” with Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor’s companion.
The showrunner told SFX that “it’s surprising” how much the overall tone of the series changes as soon as a new co-star joins the TARDIS. “The Doctor is different with her and the way you watch them is different,” he further explained. “You saw the Eleventh Doctor and Amy arrive together – it is like they grew up playing in the same sandpit. With a different companion he becomes a slightly different man.”
He continued: “He even dresses differently. He is the senior man, training up a new one, as it were. At the moment the Doctor is practically the adopted son of Amy and Rory – a troublesome kid they try and keep under control. With the new companion he is back to being the mysterious wonderful Space Gandalf. It gives you the show at its most iconic.”
Series 7 continues on Saturday at 7:35pm on BBC One in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.
