Moffat says he doesn't have an agenda for how his Doctor Who will differ from [previous showrunner, Russell T] Davies's but "these things happen as a matter of instinct" and his instinct led him towards a more "storybook quality". "For me, Doctor Who literally is a fairy tale. It's not really science fiction. It's not set in space, it's set under your bed. It's at its best when it's related to you, no matter what planet it's set on.There's also plenty of politics in the interview - Moffat is a critic (to say the least) of the Conservative Party and the Murdoch media empire.
"Every time it cleaves towards that, it's very strong. Although it is watched by far more adults than children, there's something fundamental in its DNA that makes it a children's programme and it makes children of everyone who watches it. If you're still a grown up by the end of that opening music, you've not been paying attention."
The new series of Doctor Who will start on BBC One on 3 April. Here's the trailer:
