Is The Doctor Just the Hero?

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 30, 2012 in Dr. Who |


Here’s a few bits of Doctor Who news from the past week. Producer Steven Moffat recently stated that contrary to popular belief, The Doctor isn’t the main character of the show. Instead he believes that while The Doctor is certainly the hero, the main characters are, in actuality, his companions. With the impending exit of Amy and Rory next season, one story will be coming to an end, with Jenna Louise Coleman’s story about to begin. Sadly, he hasn’t given any further details regarding her upcoming role as the Doctor’s new companion.

There was also recent interview with MTV in which John Barrowman urges fans to campaign for the return of Jack Harkness for the Doctor’s upcoming 50th anniversary special. There’s been talk of Jack returning in the past, but nothing has ever come of it. According to reports, Matt Smith, Russel T. Davies and Steven Moffat have all seem on board with the idea. Nevertheless, the decision remains in the air and if enough fans make their voices heard, something may come of it. Barrowman didn’t specify an outlet, but I imagine tweeting at the show’s producers of even writing about the subject on Facebook would be a great place to start.
