Steven Moffatt is stepping down as writer and executive producer of Dr Who in 2017.
The head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who, Steven Moffat, is to step down from the show, the BBC has confirmed. His last series will go out in spring 2017 following a Christmas special, after which he will be replaced by Broadchurch writer Chris Chibnall. Moffat took over the reins on series five of the world's longest running sci-fi series in 2010.
I think that is a good thing as recently it has become too complicated at times to follow and the excitement has been lacking. I do think Moffatt wrote some of the best episodes, though, like 'The Girl in the Fireplace' and 'Blink'.
