'Doctor Who' Steven Moffat on 50th: 'There's more than one 60-minute film'

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has claimed that he is "very busy" planning for the show's 50th anniversary.

The sci-fi drama's head writer insisted that fans will get more than just the rumoured hour-long special in November.

"[There's] a lot of different things going on," Moffat said in an interview conducted at the Gallifrey 2013 convention in Los Angeles. "Don't believe the nonsense about one 60-minute film, that is complete nonsense."

Moffat added that he is excited to shoot in 3D for the first time, but did admit that utilising the technology presents some "logistical problems".

"I think it poses every kind of logistical problem!" he laughed. "You can imagine it takes much longer to shoot, every CGI shot has to be done twice… it's a proper old headache.

"But wouldn't it be awful if some other show was the first one to be 3D - it's got to be Doctor Who, hasn't it?"
