Steven Moffat, who was already on the DOCTOR WHO writing staff, took the reins as DOCTOR WHO show runner and producer in 2010. He brought in Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and created the character of Amy Pond played by Karen Gillan.

As the sixth season continues more is uncovered about Rivers’ past and it all ends with a wedding (or at least the finale’s title implies […]Read On »
