Steven Moffat To Serve As Doctor Who Show Runner Until At Least Series 10

The man who wrote some of the best episodes of the RTD era and as served as showrunner since 2010's series five will be sticking around for some time yet. Moffat confirmed he was signed up for at least another year during a BAFTA Q&A in New York.

He had already given us Matt Smith, John Hurt and Peter Capaldi's Eleventh, War and Twelfth Doctor's respectively and successfully heralded in the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2013. While there are some fans who have argued that Moffat has ruined Doctor Who with River Song, Clara and convoluted series arcs there are many more who have praised his efforts on the show - this writer included.

While the show was already successful in the US before Moffat took over, he has also been credited with making it the global phenomenon it is now. Between Doctor Who and Sherlock - recently confirmed as starting filming for series 4 in early 2016 - it is no wonder the BBC wants to keep him on one of their flagship shows for the foreseeable future. And while it has not been confirmed yet, current star Peter Capaldi will likely be there alongside him.

What do you think? Are you happy that Moffat will be around for at least series nine and ten? Or do you think it is time for some fresh blood? Given how passionate Doctor Who fans are, there are sure to be arguments for both.
