The Doctor’s Sadistic Challenge…

There’s lots to come in the next series of Doctor Who if a recent interview with Executive Producer Piers Wenger is anything to go by.

We’ll be looking at his various words of wisdom over the next couple of days, but most important is the interesting way in which Wenger summed up what promises to be the most audacious series.

“We’re constantly trying to raise the bar on what’s been there before. And I think we’ll probably be scarier, especially as the relationships between the characters become darker and more complex. I think that will be the big difference between the two season.

“Season five was all about getting to know Amy and Rory and getting to understand their relationship and getting to know a little more about River…

I think season six will be more about testing those relationships, making them more complicated as the Doctor faces a particularly sadistic challenge.”

We think that sounds absolutely fascinating – roll on 2011!

Meanwhile, feel free to leave your thoughts as to what the challenge might be…
