Fresh from the madness after yesterday's Whovian extravaganza, opinions from the current stars of the show are beginning to arise.
The Doctor himself, Matt Smith, said he couldn't be more thankful for having showrunner and head writer on board. "Steven's changed the mythology of the character, which after 50 years is an achievement." Just before the broadcast, Moffat confessed he was "nervous" about the scale of this new adventure. But he also said he hoped fans would be "very happy", confessing: "It's got a big emotional wallop at the end". We now know that "emotional wallop" was the surprise appearance of Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, and a tribute with all the incarnations.
Steven Moffat is probably the most polarizing writer and showrunner Doctor Who has seen, but no one can deny the boldness of the traits he's brought to this universe, like the Weekping Angels, River Song, Vastra, Jenny and Strax, aiding to the creation of Captain Jack Harkness, and the War Doctor. Speaking about the War Doctor, John Hurt said he was thrilled to become part of the show, although he admitted: "It turned out not to be so much fun, as much as extremely hard work".
Jenna Coleman for one said she got a little starstruck working with Hurt, Smith and David Tennant. "I was fan-girling a little bit, having three Doctors to play with".
We're sure the celebration isn't nearly over, and with a brand new Christmas special and Doctor coming up, 2013 will go down Whovian history books and journals as one of the best ever.
