New Dr Who like "Twilight"...erm...gulp.

Please tell me the above quote is simply a bad marketing slogan and not a true reflection of new Dr Who's direction. We don't need any more angst ridden vampires on tv Very Happy

I think this quote must be from an interview with Piers Wenger (executive producer) in Doctor Who magazine in which he said that the new series of Doctor Who has Twilight and Harry Potter-like elements to it.

Piers Wenger - who is working alongside fellow execs Steven Moffat and Beth Willis for series five - said that they wanted it to have a "fairy-tale feel".

"We just wanted to make the show look as up-to-date as it possibly could," Wenger explained. "One of the qualities in Steven's writing, and one of Steven's natural tendencies as a writer, is to write these strange, dark, glittering fairy tales.

"We wanted to give the look of the series a slightly more storybook, fairy-tale feel - within reason."

He added: "It wasn't about suddenly becoming Tim Burton, but it was finding a pinch of that, a pinch of Twilight, a pinch of Harry Potter - but it's still absolutely, slap-bang, mainstream Doctor Who."
