Murray Gold warns that ‘Doctor Who’ 50th could be controversial



Yesterday Den Of Geek posted an interesting interview with Murray Gold, who is best known for his musical adventures as the composer that has been connected to Doctor Who since the series returned in 2005.

In the interview Gold warned that the 50th Anniversary episode, which is well over an hour could be quite controversial in that it may divide fans.

“There’s a thing they’ve done in it, which might be controversial,” he said. “It’s interesting though.”

Gold went on to add that he will be sad to see the current 11th Doctor Matt Smith leave the show at Christmas.

“Matt has a very interesting internal energy, which he allows to show,” he said. “He’s a child, he’s an old man – everybody knows this. People have had since 2010 to notice this about him. He’s really so good.”

Doctor Who’s 50th special – penned by showrunner Steven Moffat – will air on Saturday, November 23 on BBC One.
