Stephen Moffatt, executive producer-writer of BBC America's "Dr. Who," inherited a chunk of a challenge when he took on the role as Dr. Who's navigator. But he seems to be keeping audiences on track. "The trouble with a series as it gets older is it can feel like a tradition, and tradition is the enemy of suspense, and it's the enemy of comedy" he says.

"It's the enemy of everything really. So you have to shake it up. That doesn't mean it's the new tradition. We'll shake it up in a completely different way next time. But that's what it's about, keeping it lively, keeping it brand new, keeping it exciting."
