"We thought it was about time to give them a rest. They are the most famous of The Doctor's adversaries and the most frequent, which means they are the most reliably defeatable enemies in the universe."
Moffat also discussed his use of dramatic cliffhangers at the end of each episode. Last week's episode The Almost People featured a shock twist that will lead into this week's mid-season finale A Good Man Goes To War.
He said: "The only thing that was missing when Doctor Who came back this time was that there weren’t enough cliffhangers. Do you remember in the old days? The music crashing in just as The Doctor finds out... well I love that. Plus it encourages the audience to come back. So we are bringing the cliffhanger back in force."
