Steven Moffat has said he’s unsure about whether the Paternoster Gang should return to Doctor Who.

Speaking in Doctor Who Magazine​ #484, Moffat said: “I’m always slightly worried that you can’t keep repeating the joke. And there’s always talk of the spin-off, and the Beeb would do it in a heartbeat… but… I don’t know.

“The moment you start relying on something, you should probably throw it away. I always kind of feel that nothing should stay in the Doctor’s life. You can have River for a few years, but then River has to go.”


“Although… This planet of which you speak, London; what do you do there?”
“Solve crimes”
“Protect the Empire”
“There’s quite a lot of running”
“Some spectacular dresses”
“And an awful lot of fun”
