Buckle up, Whovians – it looks like there might be more risk of hanky-panky in the Twelfth Doctor’s Tardis than we’d been lead to believe.
In fact, according to the show’s head writer Steven Moffat, the sexual tension between Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and his companion Clara played by Jenna Coleman has been bubbling away all this time. Danny Pink would NOT be happy (if he was still alive).
“Because we’re in a very different place with the Doctor and Clara in the modern series, it’s been a while since I’ve seen the early stages of the Twelfth Doctor trying to pretend he doesn’t fancy Clara,” Moffat told interviewer Jaci Stephen. “’Oh you’re ugly, disgusting, stop looking so good!’”
“In truth, I think in most cases with the Doctor his tragedy is he always loves them more than they love him. That’s his story. He’s always besotted with them even though he’s trying to pretend that he isn’t.”
“It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with,” Capaldi said. “It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments’. I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant.”
