Moffat Writers On Board?

According to Comic Book Resources, season 31 executive producer Steven Moffat has already sounded out writing talent for his first series in charge…

Columnist Rich Johnson claims that both Dalek writer Rob Shearman and comic book legend Neil Gaiman have been approached, with the latter noncommittal:

In fact when I asked Neil if he’d care to comment, he pleaded the Francis saying, "You may very well think that, but I could not possibly comment."

Interestingly Johnson also states something about Moffat’s previous work that I would heartily agree with:

"Press Gang" made me want to write in the first place, managed to make sex symbols out of Julia Sawalha and Dexter Fletcher and given its time slot, probably pushed the boundaries more than Russell T Davies’ "Queer As Folk" did

Is it possible that four names on this page – Steven Moffat, Russell T Davies,Neil Gaiman and Rob Shearman could all contribute to season 31?

I don’t know, but I think that there is one question on everybody’s lips:

The one question I really want answered is, as a straight man, will Steven pursue a lesbian agenda on the show?

Hmmm….
