Packed with exclusive photos and interviews, Doctor Who Magazine issue#484 is on sale tomorrow, Thursday 5 March 2015, priced £4.99. In this issue the comic strip continues; showrunner Steven Moffat answers more readers’ questions talking a little about the direction the Twelfth Doctor will be heading in Series 9, The Fact of Fiction puts another story under the microscope, all the latest merchandise is previewed and reviewed; plus in-depth interviews and features, news, prize-winning competitions and much, much more.
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.”
