Steven Moffat may bring River Song back to Doctor Who

23 May 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who fans could see a return of River Song in the future.

Showrunner Steven Moffat said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of bringing Alex Kingston's character back at some point in the future.

He told Radio Times: "It entirely depends on whether we've got a good story.

"It's certainly not ruled out. I have a sort of worry about keeping anybody around in the Doctor's life for too long. Because he's the Man who Leaves."

Moffat's predecessor Russell T Davies is also championing her return to the show.

"I mentioned in passing to Russell that we were probably done with River," Moffat added. "He said, 'You can't be done with River! No, no, no. Capaldi and Kingston, it's a sex storm!"

Series nine of Doctor Who will air in the autumn on BBC One. »

It all started off so innocently. Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova settled down to chat about some recent Doctor Who news when it all got too much for the American. The news that Steven Moffat had declared the Doctor “not a role model” sent the Kasterborous associate editor over the edge, resulting in a foul-mouthed...

Andrew Reynolds is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

He may have changed face but does the Doctor still fancy Clara? Well, Steven Moffat seems to think so… At the beginning of his tenure as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi insisted that there would be no romance between the Doctor and his companions; specifically, there would be ‘no papa-nicola moments’, adding that there had been...

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat will stay until at least series 10

18 May 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's a quick update on the future of Doctor Who - showrunner Steven Moffat will stay until series 10, it has been confirmed...

Just a short hint at the future of Doctor Who here: Mr Steven Moffat - showrunner since Matt Smith's first full series, series 5 - will officially stay with the show until series 10, at least. 

It's not surprising that the BBC wants Moffat to stay, seeing as his reign has seriously broadened the show's American success and turned Doctor Who into one of the broadcaster's biggest exports. Moffat also successfully steered the good ship Who through the big fiftieth anniversary year, including the overseeing of The Day Of The Doctor and The Night Of The Doctor, as well as finding time to make his cameo in The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot (which gifted us with an image of him which we endeavour to use in every news story »

Doctor Who series 9: Everything we know so far

17 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Last Updated: May 18, 2015

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.

Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.

Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.

Peter Capaldi will return for his second full series as the Doctor, while Jenna Coleman will be back for her third run of episodes as Clara Oswald.

Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »

The Doctor is Not Your Role Model, Says Showrunner Moffat

Speaking at the recent Bafta Wales presentation in New York to celebrate 10 years of Doctor Who’s return to TV, showrunner Steven Moffat made a rather odd assertion, one that will cause puzzled looks on the faces of many fans, young and old. It boils down to this: the Doctor is not a role model....

BBC

News just in – It’s been announced that Steven Moffat has signed up to remain as Doctor Who’s showrunner for at least another year.

The writer has been at the helm of the series since 2010 and confirmed that he’ll also be sticking around for Series 10 which will be airing in 2016. He has thus far overseen the Eleventh Doctor’s tenure as well as introducing John Hurt as a secret incarnation during the franchise’s 50th anniversary year.

As Wales Online reports, he made the announcement at a special BAFTA Q&A which was held in New York this week to commemorate a decade of the revived series. Series 10 will be his sixth series as executive producer and the third to feature Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, who is expected to continue playing the titular Time Lord beyond 2015.

Doctor Who: Expect a huge cliffhanger for that Zygons 2-parter

15 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who is bringing back Osgood and a classic monster - and writer Peter Harness has promised a huge cliffhanger for the two-part adventure.

Harness - who previously wrote series 8's 'Kill the Moon' - has scripted a second adventure for Peter Capaldi's Time Lord, which will reintroduce both Ingrid Oliver's character and the shape-shifting alien Zygons.

"It's a bit unbelievable to be bringing [the Zygons] back again - and also Osgood as well, another fan favourite," he told Digital Spy.

"It's a privilege to be telling a story about those two, and I think it's quite an exciting story as well. Unfortunately I've got two fan favourites in my hands now, which can only set me up to disappoint people!"

The ninth series of Doctor Who is expected to revive the two-parter format, with Steven Moffat previously telling DS he is "changing the rhythm" of the show.

"It's nice to do a cliffhanger, »

Sherlock series 4: Everything we know about so far including filming schedule, air dates and plots

15 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Oh, Sherlock. What one hand giveth, the other taketh away, or something – while we're ecstatic to hear that series four's filming dates have been confirmed, we're less ecstatic that it likely won't air until 2017.

That's a three-year gap between series three and four, the longest the show has had to date, although this time we will have the non-canon Victorian special to tide us over (expect that to air sometime in the 2015 festive period, possibly, maybe).

It's early days, but below we've rounded up all the information we have so far about Sherlock's fourth run.

When will it air?

No air date has been confirmed, and it likely won't be until weeks beforehand. But based on previous transmission dates, we feel fairly confident in saying that Sherlock series four, episode one will premiere on Sunday January 1, 2017, with episodes two and three following on January 8 and 15.

Why is Sherlock going Victorian? Steven Moffat has the answer

11 May 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Baffled as to why Sherlock is heading back to the Victorian age? Steven Moffat has the answer.

The hit BBC One drama's upcoming special will be a one-off set in 1895, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman playing period versions of their characters.

"We've got, I think you can safely say, the Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson of a generation - we want to see them do it in the proper outfits, just once," Moffat said backstage at last night's (May 10) House of Fraser BAFTA Television Awards.

"That makes them the only two who've done both [period and contemporary] - apart from [Basil] Rathbone and [Nigel] Bruce, who we venerate, of course."

Moffat admitted that he and Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss were "giddy" on set for the Victorian special.

"We were ridiculous," he admitted. "Running around, saying, 'He's wearing a deerstalker! Look at that moustache!' It's very exciting."

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue also confirmed that »

10 May 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sherlock fans, rejoice! The fourth series of the hit BBC show starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will start filming in spring 2016.

Co-creator Steven Moffat confirmed the news to press including Digital Spy while speaking alongside Sue Vertue at the BAFTA winners press conference.

Moffat has previously said that the series will represent "an emotional upheaval" and leave fans desperate for series five.

He said: "[Series four] is going to be... I suppose you'd say... consequences. It's consequences. Chickens come to roost.

"It's dark in some ways - obviously it's great fun and a Sherlock Holmes romp and all that - but there's a sense of things coming back to bite you."

Before the fourth series hits screens, fans can look forward to a one-off Sherlock Victorian special which will air later in 2015.

The 90-minute special will be completely separate from other episodes, with Moffat describing it as "its own little bubble »

Ingrid Oliver’s Osgood Returns To Doctor Who!

10 May 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Like most Doctor Who fans, we were sad to see Osgood cruelly dispatched by Missy (Michelle Gomez) in the show’s series eight finale ‘Death in Heaven’, but it’s good news as the Doctor’s biggest fan and Unit scientist Osgood, played by Ingrid Oliver, has been brought back by Steven Moffat for Doctor Who series nine.

She’ll be back and face-to-face with the shape-shifting extra-terrestrial Zygons, as they also return for the new series and we can’t wait to see both of them. Mr Steven Moffat had this to say:

“Osgood is back, fresh from her recent murder at the end of last series. We recently confirmed that Osgood was definitely dead and not returning – but in a show about time travel, anything can happen. The brilliant Ingrid Oliver is back in action. This time though, can the Doctor trust his number one fan?”
