is it really necessary to post this a day ahead of the mag's release date and pre-empt their exclusive? It's really wouldn't kill you to wait a couple of days.

Oh God, sounds like more twee fairy tale gubbins....Moffat's perception of the show as a children's show is fair enough if that's what he thinks, but does he need to keep filling it with children?? CBBC can't be far away at this rate....

I have to say, I'm slightly surprised at the WW2 era getting another visit...
