Will Salmon of SFX looks at some of the questions still left hanging after two seasons of Moffat-vision
So, why go to the trouble of putting River in the lake?
Speaking of the incident at Lake Silencio, did it really take the Doctor 200 years to come up with that escape plan?
What was going on with those photos of a happy Amy and baby Melody?
How does drawing tally marks on your face help? Surely that’s an awkward place to mark yourself? You’d need to carry a mirror around with you at all times.
What’s going on with Madame Kovarian?
What was that Season 6B teaser all about?
How are Dorium and those skulls still alive?
Are the Doctor and River married now?
Whatever happened to the Evil League of Evil?
Speaking of monsters, what’s up with the Cybermen?
What’s going on with the other timeship from “The Lodger”?
So who blew up the TARDIS in “The Big Bang”?
Now we come to mention it, what exactly is The Silence?
What is the question?
And finally, and most crucially… why was there a duck pond with no ducks in “The Eleventh Hour”?

Matt Smith, the eleventh actor to play Doctor Who, says he would like to make some changes to his on-screen uniform.
With a girlfriend like Daisy Lowe, the model, Matt Smith has to pay heed to his personal wardrobe.He has now been thinking about a new look for Doctor Who. “I had some input initially with the bow tie and tweed,” he says of his on-screen uniform at a private view of the fashion label Acne’s collaboration with artist Daniel Silver in Mayfair.Although he feels he is “stuck” with the look he helped to create, he thinks it may be time for a spot of leather, too. “That would be good,” he says, thoughtfully.

Its stories might be getting darker, and its plots ever more outlandish, but the Time Lord still has millions of fellow travellers. Helen Lewis-Hasteley and Andrew Harrison debate the tea-time institution
God love the BBC, but they do make some baffling decisions. In Doctor Who, they have more than a TV show, they have a national institution. So what do they do? Monkey around with its scheduling – a split series this year, and the next 13 episodes to be spread across 2012 and 2013 in some unspecified way, like it's some failed American import that no one knows what to do with. Even worse, BBC1's controller, Danny Cohen, put the blame on the showrunner, Steven Moffat, who also executive produces Sherlock. Moffat took to Twitter to respond: "The scheduling of Dr Who has got NOTHING to do with Sherlock", so I'm guessing there was a frosty atmosphere the next time the pair met.

Steven Moffat has been going on about the Doctor Who Christmas special, and what's coming up in the next year or two.
Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2012
An amazing piece of work, with this that and the other.
With interviews and bits and pieces of whats to come.
Spoiler - Rory and Amy aren't in the Christmas special.
Why isn't the series going to be shown in the summer of 2012 - Moffat says "I'm sick of
standing in the blazing sunshine, with a barebecue fork in my hand, knowing that Doctor Who is coming on any minute”. Er wait a minute, what bloody country does he live in then?
The 50th Anniversary will be well worth waiting for!

It’s Tardimus Prime! The Sonic Screwdriver will be the least of the Time Lord’s enemies’ worries if the TARDIS actually transformed into Optimus Prime. It’ll still be bigger on the inside though.

Matt Smith wants Whoopi Goldberg to play his companion in the next series of 'Doctor Who'.The 28-year-old actor - who plays the Doctor - thinks the 'Sister Act' star would be a great foil for the Time Lord and he would also love Oscar winner Colin Firth to join him in the TARDIS.He told BANG Showbiz: "Whoopi Goldberg would be a great companion wouldn't she? Yeah, she'd be great. Also I'd love Eric Cantona, or Colin Firth. Colin Firth would be great but he would not do it. God, when I think about it there are so many people I would love to get in it."
