In the interview Steven Moffat states: “We’re not bringing him back exactly the same as we left him, at all. I think that was already evident at Christmas. He’s left some of the burden of being the superhero of the universe behind. Also, Peter magnifies anything that is dark. So I’m pushing him – I’m writing quite funny this year – I’m pushing him the other way.

He’s also got a Scottish gloom about him. If you gave him a Matt Smith script, it would come out very, very differently. I think it was great fun to do for a year. But no, that’s not how we’re going to play the rest of him.”

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The day of the Doctor

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special The day of the DoctorThe title for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special was revealed earlier today, it’s The day of the Doctor.

The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, will join David Tennant and John Hurt as the Doctors. It’s true, we still don’t know which incarnation of the Time Lord is John Hurt, but I think we will found out soon. Both companions Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman will be involved in the story.

The celebratory episode will be feature-length, it was announced to be 75 minutes long, not 90, as many have expected, and it will air 50 years to the day since Doctor Who first hit TV screens, on Saturday 23 November.

The story is also set to feature the return of classic Who monsters the Zygons, as well as Daleks, Cybermen and the Doctor’s allies UNIT.

The image is the official poster of the episode.
