While Moffat Talks Doctor Who, Former Cast Members Do Good Works

This is a trailer for ITV's new drama Broadchurch, a stark crime drama about a family, and a town, ripped apart by the death of a small boy. And it is loaded with former cast members of Doctor Who, with David Tennant and Olivia Coleman (who recently impressed me in Hyde Park on Hudson) headlining the show as the police investigating the crime. Recent Who cast off Arthur Darvill also stars.

Meanwhile, over in America, Steven Moffat sat down for a nearly quarter hour long interview with Ed Stradling at the Gallifrey One 2013 convention this past week you have to click the link, as the video isn't allowing embedding). They cover a range of topics, which manages to avoid any specifics about the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, except for how the show will be filming in 3D (quite elsewhere, Moffat was quoted as saying, in that coy way he does that "getting the other Doctors involved would be very fitting for the anniversary episode, wouldn't it?") They do talk about monsters and aliens, Moffat's time working on the show, and what lies ahead for the future.

Spoilers, but Moffat is already planning series 8, for 2014 presumably, and that Matt Smith isn't going anywhere anytime soon, despite recently being cast in his first Hollywood film.
