Steven Moffat Episodes — Series 6

This is the most arc-driven we’ve ever been, I would say. And even with that, it’s still closer to the anthology model than it is to anything else. Each story is its own thing, there’s just strands running through it.

Doctor Who can be complicated at times, it absolutely can be — but it’s supposed to be. You’re supposed to pay attention.

I’m also addressing children, hugely the case in the U.K., and children are demanding of complexity.  I think we do some complicated stories, we also do incredibly simple stories.

When did we decide that children - who learn to read in a very short space of time, who learn to speak the English language within a year and a half, who can learn anything faster than you or I - are stupid? They’re bored by different things, and there are some complicated emotions that can be confusing to them. But I always get gobsmacked when people say that. Have you seen what they’re reading? Harry Potter? These great big doorstops of books! And children who watch television, watch it like this (he folds his hands under his chin and stares intently at an imaginary screen).

If you ever, ever, ever dumb anything down, you are assuming other people aren’t as clever as you. And you will not survive long. Always assume people are smarter than you. — Steven Moffat
