“We thought it was a risky move” laughed Moffat, “but hey! It paid off.”
Fans worldwide were treated to a Nazified Doctor Who this evening in the 50th Anniversary, as David Tennant and Matt Smith delighted the globe with a sketch dedicated to Joseph Goebbels, the head of Nazi propaganda.
Goebbels, ‘Reich Minister of Propaganda’, was reportedly a fan of the Argentinian version of Doctor Who, Medico Que? during his time in exile from Germany following World War Two. Steven Moffat, head writer of the 50th Anniversary, said he’d “known this all along”.
“I’d planned from the start to include a homage to Joseph Goebbels in the anniversary somewhere, I just didn’t know how I was going to fit it in.Luckily, David and Matt came up to me with this little dance they’d prepared.”
“We called it ‘The Poisoned Dwarf’” said Matt Smith, Doctor incumbent, “And it was basically a jig. A very, very politically incorrect jig.”
“Please don’t sue us” concluded Tennant.
It is expected that the BBC will include more Nazi party references in its future shows, ahead of the opening of the BBC Commemorative Joseph Goebbels Building next September.
