'Doctor Who' will take over television in 2013, says Steven Moffat

By
Steven Moffat has promised that Doctor Who will "take over television" in 2013.

However, the showrunner - speaking at a screening of this year's Christmas special 'The Snowmen' - remained tight-lipped about any specific plans for the 50th anniversary year.

"They are immense, they are considerable," he promised. "[The episodes] will be full of tremendous surprises. But they wouldn't be surprises if I accidentally said them now, would they?

"But I promise you, we're going to take over television. Trust me."

Jenna-Louise Coleman will make her debut as Clara in 'The Snowmen', with Moffat also addressing the mysterious link between the new companion and Oswin Oswald - the character that Coleman played in the episode 'Asylum of the Daleks'.

"You will know [what the link is between the two] eventually," he promised. "You are going to get the answer but as ever on Doctor Who, we make you wait a little bit longer."

'The Snowmen' will air on BBC One on December 25 at 5.15pm, with eight more Doctor Who episodes confirmed to follow in 2013.
