As we all know. This year represents the 50th anniversary for ‘Doctor Who’ and as you would expect. The expectations from fans are very high.

In a recent interview for Radio Times executive producer and head writer Steven Moffat revealed that he was very much aware of the expectation, but also rather excited about the prospects and fan reaction to what he has planned.

While describing the next eight episodes Moffat said, “the Doctor’s greatest secret is in jeopardy.” That secret being his real name.

“We’ll be up in the air, we’re under the water, we’re on a fantastic alien planet, we’re back in time [and] we’re forward in time,” he said. “The Doctor’s greatest secret is in jeopardy.”

With the casting recently announced for Doctor Who anniversary biopic An Adventure in Space and Time – penned by Mark Gatiss. It’s fair to say that fans are already in a celebratory frame of mind and are wanting more and more information about what is to come, but Moffat is wary about confirming any further plans for the sci-fi drama’s 50th.

“I don’t want people to get bored just yet,” he elaborated. “So let’s just wait and get our next eight episodes out of the way before we start talking about it.

“I’m mostly excited [about the anniversary], a little bit nervous and aware of trying not to let people down.”

Doctor Who will return to BBC One this Easter, beginning its new eight-week run on Saturday, March 30.
