Doctor Who Stars, EP on Season 9: A 'Surprise' Resurrection, Classic Monsters and an 'Upside Down' Twist

Doctor Who, meet Miss Manners.

Season 9 of the hit sci-fi franchise won’t find Peter Capaldi’s version of the title character seeking advice-column solutions to his social awkwardness, but he might get some training from time-traveling companion Clara Oswald, the actor teased during an interview with Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s Comic-Con suite at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Michelle Gomez, meanwhile, shared that the nature of her character Missy’s resurrection left her “surprised,” adding this very cryptic hint about the upcoming batch of episodes: “Something that you will come to witness is quite literally turned upside down. Quite literally.” That’s some timey-wimey talk right there!

    Screw Moffat, he needs to go…

      Screw you! He can stay as long as he wants!

        Nope, sorry, Eli is right.

        All of the flaws in the most recent stories can be traced back to one person in particular, and that person is Moffat. He’s great with ideas, but sucks at execution. Maybe a new/better writer could make Clara likable; because it’s definitely not the actress’s fault.

          I’m in wholeheartsed (note what I did there?) agreement with EB and Eli. I’m starting to get worried that Steven Moffat is the NuWho JNT (for those of you unfamiliar with ‘JNT’, just google John Nathan-Turner, 80s Who producer)… who also stayed longer than he should have overseeing the show. Doctor Who is one of those shows that constantly needs new blood beyond just the change of leading man and companion. Nothing personal Steven Moffat, but it’s time for you to go. At least from the executive producer’s chair. Come back and write the odd script. However let’s get new ideas and a fresh new vision to take Doctor Who in the next few years.
