Doctor Who: Moffat provides more hints on the nature of John Hurt’s Doctor


In his most recent interview for SFX Magazine Steven Moffat revealed more about the nature of John Hurt’s incarnation of the Doctor by saying that he’s part of a chapter in the Doctor’s lives that has never been revealed.

“There’s a whole lot of stuff you missed!” said the BBC sci-fi drama’s head writer. “It’s a nice thing to be able to say in the show, and for no-one to be able to contradict you, that there were years that you didn’t know about.

“We lied and lied – there’s a whole big old chapter you didn’t know.”

Moffat added that John Hurt’s version for the Doctor is a bit rougher and tougher than fans will be used to.

“It looks like somehow he’s been through it a bit,” he said. “This isn’t a Doctor who’s just appeared, he’s been around, he’s been in this form for a while.”

Doctor Who – The Day Of The Doctor premieres on November 23 and includes appearances by Daleks and Zygon’s to name only two of the major Doctor Who monsters that we’ll see.
