  Showrunner Steven Moffat, in an interview with SFX magazine, that their will be more online episodes like Pond Life, and Night of the Doctor. Moffat admitted he was not particularly a fan of the direct to internet and the BBC iPlayer content, but has since come to see the value of the short.  Explaining, he said,  “they’d give me some money to do an online thing and I’d say right, what crew do we already have, what actors do we already have, what set do we already have?
