Alex Zalben over at MTV has provided a round-up of new details from Stephen Moffat’s various interviews on the upcoming season of “Doctor Who” and the Doctor’s mysterious new companion, Clara.

It’s very possible Moffat is carefully treading the line between half-truths, but if everything he says is actual fact, “Doctor Who” has the potential to be a very different show this season.
