Steven Moffat To Step Down As ‘Doctor Who’ Showrunner In 2017 | TV News
Whovian hearts are heavy today has the BBC has announced that Steven Mofat is to step down as showrunner for its headline show Doctor Who after six seasons at the helm. Moffat will exit the series after the conclusion of series Ten in 2017 to be replaced by BroadChurch showrunner Chris Chibnall. In a statement to the Radio Times, Moffat commented on his departure:
“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”.
