The landmark Doctor Who episode on Saturday not only honored the 50th anniversary of the show, but also gave fans a sneak peek at Peter Capaldi, the next Doctor.

“It was the plan from the start – all the Doctors… all the Doctors will fly in to save Gallifrey and change the timeline,” Moffat told the press at the official Doctor Who Celebration at London’s ExCel.

“That meant we should have the new one. I knew there was going to be a new one, so I wrote it not knowing who would be doing that [scene].”

Tom Baker and Capaldi made special appearances. Baker, the fourth Doctor, nicknamed himself ‘The Curator’ and was key in directing the course of Matt Smith’s Doctor.

Capaldi’s cameo was delight for the fans.

“We did manage to cast somebody where you can use less than half his face, for less than a second and everybody knows who it is!” he remarked.

“It’s just another treat – I was just trying to throw treats at the screen!”

Doctor Who will return to BBC One this Christmas.
