The showrunner explained that the latest series will prioritise several separate stories over a long-running story arc or two-part episodes.
"As ever, there's a bit of both," he told the Radio Times at Tuesday night's RTS Awards. "But this time we're moving closer to stand-alone stories. At this point, we're not planning any two-parters. So, every week is going to be like a different mad movie."
He added: "We went quite 'arc' last time and we're going stand-alone this time around. But that doesn't mean that there aren't those things creeping in.
"You've got to find a way to make the last episode special, and by God that worked ratings-wise last year. We don't want to abandon that idea."
When asked for any extra teasers for the new series, Moffat revealed: "Watch out for the title of episode two. I think that's a belter. It's one of my favourite titles ever."
Moffat has also played down the possibility of Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch appearing in Doctor Who in the near future.
Jenna-Louise Coleman has been rumoured to be replacing Karen Gillan as the new Doctor Who companion.
Doctor Who will return to BBC One and BBC America in the autumn.
