Doctor: 'I wear a Stetson now. Stetsons are cool.'
It must be hard for any
show to live up to the pre-season hype. They're always promising
bigger, better, weirder, more satisfying story lines. Of course, it's
usually just talk. Maybe they're too close to the project to be truly
objective, or more likely, they feel obligated to big-up the show to
the size they hope it will be. So what are we to make of Steven
Moffat's 'it's the Doctor's darkest hour' and 'it's going to be a real
game changer' pre-season spiel? Should we write it off as mere rhetoric
designed to get our fantasy/scifi juices flowing, or will there
actually be some substance to the Moff's grandiose promises?
