We're less than a month away from the premiere of series 9 of Doctor Who and every day, more exciting news are coming! ''The Magician's Apprentice'' will be premiered on 19th September on BBC One and showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed more news about the amazing series 9!
According to the RadioTimes, Steven Moffat revealed interesting news about the episodes 3 and 4 of series 9, written by Toby Whithouse:
“We kicked a few ideas backwards and forwards, Toby and I, for quite a while, and the one that sort of kicked him off was ‘ghosts plus time travel'. You know, if you allow both time travel and ghosts in the same universe, you can meet your own ghost. That’s the one that got his juices going. And it’s all down to him. He also wanted an underwater base, and it looks amazing. It’s an amazing set. It looks fantastic."
That looks really interesting! Can't wait to see it! I'm sure they're going to be amazing episodes!
Also, Moffat talked about the two-parter Invasion of the Zygons, episodes seven and eight, ''will contain some social commentary on the topic of immigration; with the shape-shifting aliens now trying to make a new life on Earth alongside us.''
“I think we have to be awfully careful here, but I would say within the terms of Doctor Who, which involves blobby monsters and action adventure, this is as close to addressing the modern world as we get,” he says. “Now I’m not suggesting that it’s a political deconstruction of the way things are, but it’s a decent framework for discussing it in. Zygons live among us. What do we do about it? Maybe some of them will be cross. Maybe most of them will be fine. I’d like to think that we embrace the idea that the monsters might have a point. And maybe, in fact, the monsters aren’t monsters at like us. I think it’s good drama."
I'm curius to see what he has for us! God! Can't wait for series 9 to begin! But I know what to do until then! Doctor Who-athon! Yay!
