DR WHO: Sneak peak at new series!

Karen Gillen talks about filming the new series of Doctor Who

Anyone who doesn't want a clue to goings on in the new series of Dr Who should look away now!

The series creator Steven Moffat has been dropping hints about what fans can expect to see when the show kicks off again in a few weeks' time.

Viewers should get set for a scarier than usual start to the series as the Doctor arrives in a desert.

The gang go on to join forces with an old US President to fight off a new alien threat.

Moffat said that he makes the show frightening on purpose to make it interesting for kids.

He reckons that "children absolutely rank Doctor Who stories in order of frightening-ness - that's what it's about."

Moffat also asked journalists not to tell everyone what will be happening in the new show.

He said it would be "a lot more fun for the kids", if nothing was given away. "Tease them but don't tell them!"

The creator told reporters that for the first time the series would be split into two halves.

The first few episodes will kick off at Easter but viewers will have to wait until the autumn to find out what happens in the series.
