Doctor Who chief writer Steven Moffat

If Steven Moffat Leaves, Who Should Replace Him?

Doctor Who head honcho Steven has been running the series since the first Matt Smith episodes went into production 2009. That’s four years at the top – and that doesn’t count his previous four years as the brains behind some of the most popular stories of the revived show.

The Empty Child, Blink, The Girl in the Fireplace and Silence in the Library must have all been massive efforts to put together, never mind things like The Eleventh Hour, The Pandorica Opens, A Christmas Carol and other immensely timey-wimey adventures. Put simply, The Moff must be getting tired, and with his leading man on the way out of the door in November/December, there is surely a good chance that he too might move on.

But if Steven Moffat does decide to leave Doctor Who, what happens next? Who should take over as executive producer? To be honest, we can’t settle on a unanimous choice here at Kasterborous Towers, so thought that our esteemed readers might like to help out…

Voting concludes on Sunday, so get your votes and comments in and we’ll revisit them next week!
