Lewis Moon, the lead writer and showrunner for the figure adventures season has been discussing season 7.
Is this the final season?
"It's our last hurrah, yes. It's going to be sad to say goodbye to such a brilliant series. It's so enjoyable but it's very time consuming. I do want to have time to work on other projects as well.
Does that mean the final ever episode?
"Well no it doesn't. We're not saying we won't do some specials. But in terms of series, season 7 will be the last.
What can you tell us about the cast and format?
I mean, the format will be one episode longer. We are going to have the final proper episode of the figure adventures as sort of a two parter. The cast though is not truly confirmed, and I'm afraid I need to work out some more before I can reveal it.
Is the doctor Peter Capaldi?
Kind of. This season is very different in a way, and you shall find out why soon. But yes, the doctor will be Peter Capaldi in this season. It depends which way you look at it though.
What is the production schedule?
Well I mean we are still working on the second story, which is called years of the cybermen. It's taking a while, and we're taking a little break from that now. But in terms of season 7, writing will begin towards the end of the month, or at the start of August.
What about the fifth anniversary?
Yes. We shall have a special doccumentry coming out and hopefully some videos to thank all of our fans. Hopefully we should have some very exciting gossip about something regarding the future on the date of the anniversary, which is on August 20th.
