Steven Moffat to leave Doctor Who!

 


That's it folks! It's official - Steven Moffat is to leave Doctor Who in 2017.

The Radio Times broke the news to the internet of Doctor Who's scheduling for the next year, and what's to come after that.

There isn't going to be a full new series of Doctor Who this year, as probably expected - but we will get a Christmas Special! From that we will get a brand new full series in 2017, written by Steven Moffat - and we're guaranteed to meet the new companion by this point. 

Then...2018 marks a new era - The show-runner duties will be passed to Chris Chibnall, long-time Torchwood writer, writer of Doctor Who episodes like 'Cold Blood' and 'The Power of Three' and creator of ITV hit Broadchurch.

Steven Moffat has said: "It feels odd to be talking about leaving when I’m just starting work on the scripts for season 10, but the fact is my timey-wimey is running out. While Chris is doing his last run of Broadchurch, I’ll be finishing up on the best job in the universe and keeping the TARDIS warm for him. It took a lot of gin and tonic to talk him into this, but I am beyond delighted that one of the true stars of British Television drama will be taking the Time Lord even further into the future. At the start of season 11, Chris Chibnall will become the new showrunner of Doctor Who. And I will be thrown in a skip."
