Even though we’re not over with Series 9 on the TV, Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi and the Doctor Who production designer, Michael Pickwoad have already started talking about what we can expect in Series 10.
“It’s been nice to see him more cheerful, but of course as the whole [of Series 9] develops, more terrible things happen. So in fact, I think by the end, he’s going, ‘Oh man, I was right, I should’ve remained cynical and closed off and suspicious’.
“If you’ve been following this Doctor, you’ve seen him go through all those different colours and all those different places. So where he goes now – in series 10 – I don’t know, but he’s been put through the mill.”
Capaldi also talked about what he hopes the next companions quality will be, by the sounds of it we will have another human companion as Capaldi hopes Clara’s replacement is more ‘earthly’ saying “It’s one of the things I loved about Billie Piper. That was a very new thing in Doctor Who – to have somebody who lived on an estate, and had a much earthier sound to their voice. I mean, I love Jenna – I’m really sad that she’s gone, and I feel quite bad discussing the possibility of somebody else. So it’s no reflection on her. But I think it might be interesting to have somebody who’s a little more earthy!”
