Steven Moffat has admitted that he’s set himself a “ludicrous challenge” in Series 9.

Speaking at a recent BAFTA event which was held in New York to celebrate 10 years of the revived series, the showrunner revealed that he’s in a constant “state of panic” regarding Episode 11, the penultimate episode of the upcoming series. “When you see it, you’ll realise just how ludicrous a challenge I’ve set myself,” he said. “Dear God. Even now, I’m sitting here and thinking, when I get back tonight, could I just try another way of doing it?”

It was recently confirmed that Steven will be staying on for at least another year, helming Series 10. The news was met with a mixed response and you can read our round up here.

Filming for Series 9 is currently underway. It’s scheduled to air on BBC One in the autumn.

    I don’t see how that’s a challenge since he’s been managing to do that since 2009.

    I think his “ludicrous challenge” is to be more unpopular than JNT!

    Regardless, I’ve yet to see anything that wasn’t explained later or is easily explainable. There’s certainly been no “plotholes” bigger than the ones left by his predecessors, like the horrendous mess that was The End of Time, or the two or three conflicting accounts of Dalek history.
