The new Doctor Who will see familiar monsters be scarier than even before, according to new showrunner Steven Moffat, and that's not even describing the new Doctor/companion relationship... Mild spoilers ahead.


With the press push for the new Doctor Who season well underway in the UK, Moffat has been teasing what fans should expect from the new season. As seen in the trailer, "Blink"'s Weeping Angels are back and, apparently, more scary than their first appearance:

Those scary statues, I should warn you - and your children - are on their way back and they're way way worse this time.

That might be the new benchmark for Who scares that Moffat is referring to here:

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.

That said, we're more curious about what Moffat's talking about in terms of the Doctor/Amy relationship:

You take two attractive people and they will probably be a bit romantic about each other... 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.


We're calling it: the Doctor will fall in unrequited love for Amy. Surely that's the only Doctor/companion relationship we've not seen by now...?
