Moffat’s Not Dead Yet!
Being the creative head honcho behind both Doctor Who and Sherlock would probably reduce most of us to dribbling, paranoid wrecks but not Steven Moffat, the man who laughs in the face of AOL.TV‘s suggestion that he’s even considered exiting stage right from Doctor Who:
“I haven’t got any kind of plans to leave. I take it one [season] at a time.”
However, he is human:
“To have that and to have Sherlock, yeah, it’s savage. I’d like to get out before it kills me. But it’s not killing me at the moment. I’m loving doing it, so I have no immediate plans to leave.”
Whoever does take that mantle once Moffat decides to leave (Gatiss? Whithouse? Simon Cowell?) he wants to leave the show just as he found it:
“You don’t want to be the last one [who works on it],” he said. “I want it to go on and triumph long after I stop.”
