Toby Whithouse as Showrunner?

Doctor Who writer and Being Human creator Toby Whithouse was quizzed at the San Diego Comic Con about whether he would like to take over when The Grand Moff moves on.

Whithouse has contributed Series 6 adventure The God Complex in addition to Series 5 episode Vampires of Venice and 2006’s School Reunion.

Whether he could be showrunner or not is an interesting proposition, one which Whithouse – who gave an interesting answer – seemed interested in.

Just as long as he doesn’t have to follow Moffat directly… You can see his answer below; we’ve embedded the video to start at the Toby Whithouse section.

Whithouse has obviously worked wonders with Being Human, but could he be the man to tackle Doctor Who in future? Or is Mark Gatiss perhaps more suitable to the task?
