doctor who deep breath

The new series of 'Doctor Who' is less than a week away, and now showrunner Steven Moffat has teased us with some more details. The Doctor's regeneration as Peter Capaldi will lead to a "frightening" new dynamic between him and his assistant Clara, Moffat told TV Line.

Clara will be caught off guard by The Doctor's change in personality in the first episode, Moffat said.

"What would it be like if you were Matt Smith one moment and Peter Capaldi the next?" Moffat said. "It must be frightening – especially when you look at your best friend in the whole world, the person upon who you're anchored – and they don't see you. The literally look right through you and see someone else."

Capaldi has previously said there won't be any flirting between The Doctor and his assistant. It seems he'll also take a different approach to solving problems in The Tardis – instead of running around while coming to a conclusion, he'll stand still.

"He'd say, 'Actually, no, I'm just going to stand here'," Moffat said. "Instead of coming to the room, he let the room come to him.

"He was really bold and brave and made those changes. That was Peter finding his own path."

'Doctor Who' starts on Saturday night at 7:50pm on BBC One. The first episode is entitled 'Deep Breath', and is set in Victorian London.
