At the first official Doctor Who Convention of the new era in late March 2012 in Wales, stars and creators, including showrunner Steven Moffat and executive producer Caroline Skinner, gathered to give Whovians updates on all things TARDIS.
Teasing the upcoming Season 7 Moffat told reporters: “There’ll be utter heartbreaking tragedy to knock about, silly fun … But if you’re laughing one minute, expect to be crying in five minutes.”
But Moffat generally adhered to his spoiler-averse reputation and stuck to his maxim of, “If you want to know what happens in Doctor Who, watch it!” However, both he and Skinner were more forthcoming in panel sessions where they and more members of the “Doctor Who” cast and crew took questions from attendees.
And, in a masterstroke that underlined the value they place on the knowledgeable and engaging Whovians, the pair even presented the world premiere of the Season 7 teaser trailer during a panel session when many reporters were sequestered away in another room.
