Are we approaching the end of an era? Just days after Matt Smith admitted that his future on Doctor Who is “a year by year thing”, Executive Producer Steven Moffat has revealed that he approaches the job in the same way, and that “statistically he is nearer the end than the beginning” of his role in charge of the BBC’s internationally successful series.
Speaking in the recent Doctor Who-covered issue of Entertainment Weekly Moffat – who has been with Doctor Who as a writer since 2005 and in the hot seat as the “showrunner” since Series 5 entered production early mid-2009 – stated that like his star, he too has a relaxed approach to career mapping.
I just take it a year at a time. I think the feeling of it being done for you is quite unambiguous when it suddenly arrives.
Given how soon this has come after the shock departure of Caro Skinner, the news is likely to come as some surprise to many of Doctor Who‘s fans.
So, the time has come for the speculation to begin – who would YOU like to see take over from Steven Moffat?
