Speculation for Steven Moffat’s departure from Doctor Who is a constant question playing on the mind of Whovains. Now, it seems as though the end could be nigh for the producer, for the sci-fi producer has admitted he has started to search for his replacement, despite admitting he’s struggling with the “emotional difficulty” of moving on. Speaking in an interview with Radio Times, Moffat confirmed that leaving:
“is an issue and one I’m actively engaged in but I can’t say much about that.”. He continued, adding that he’d never depart from his beloved show unannounced and insisting that leaving is an extremely difficult issue: “Everything is difficult in Doctor Who, including leaving, and I would never do anything to harm it. I would never leave it in the lurch because it means to much to me”.
Yes it’s a problem. Let’s not pretend it’s not a big problem. But there will be a solution. In terms of the emotional difficulty of leaving, it’s hard”. With his passing of the TARDIS torch not officially confirmed as of yet, stay tuned for future updates.
