Steven Moffat has suggested that the Doctor and his companion Amy Pond could have a romance in upcoming episodes of the show.

According to The Mirror, Moffat described the relationship between Matt Smith and Karen Gillan's characters as "complex".

"You take two attractive people and they will probably be a bit romantic about each other," he said. "It is a complex story between Amy and the Doctor - it is not simple. It is not a story you have ever seen between the companion and the Doctor before."

Moffat also praised Smith, explaining: "Matt is everything I hoped for and more, the way he takes this part and the way the 11th Doctor will surprise and thrill people."

He added that the new series of Doctor Who will be more scary, saying: "There is an episode in this series that I showed to my 10-year-old son and he said there is one scene that is the scariest thing that has ever happened in Doctor Who.

"There is another episode that will make you gasp, then want to press rewind so you can see it all again."

The new series of Doctor Who will premiere on April 3 on BBC One.
