Steven Moffat says the new series of 'Doctor Who' will see "the Doctor's greatest secret in jeopardy"

The new series of 'Doctor Who' promises "jeopardy" for the Time Lord's biggest secret.

The sci-fi drama returns to BBC One in March and showrunner Steven Moffat has promised a series of exciting adventures for Matt Smith's titular character and his new companion, who is played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.

Asked what fans should expect from the new series, he told Radio Times' website: "We'll be up in the air, we're under the water, we're on a fantastic alien planet, we're back in time, we're forward in time, and the Doctor's greatest secret is in jeopardy."

Steven also admitted he is a "little bit nervous" about working on the show's 50th birthday in November, but is refusing to let his concerns interfere with his focus on the programme.

He said: "You can't do this job if you're nervous all the time. So, seriously, I'm mostly excited, a little bit nervous and aware of trying not to let people down."

And the writer admitted he is reluctant to talk about the milestone as he doesn't want fans to get "bored".

Asked about how big the event would end up being, he said: "Pretty big. But, you know, I don't want people to get bored just yet. So let's just wait and get our next eight episodes out of the way before we start talking about it."
