Series 9, 10 & Moffat
Just a short hint at the future of Doctor Who here: Mr Steven Moffat – showrunner since Matt Smith’s first full series, series 5 – will officially stay with the show until series 10, at least.
It’s not surprising that the BBC wants Moffat to stay, seeing as his reign has seriously broadened the show’s American success and turned Doctor Who into one of the broadcaster’s biggest exports. Moffat also successfully steered the good ship Who through the big fiftieth anniversary year, including the overseeing of The Day Of The Doctor and The Night Of The Doctor, as well as finding time to make his cameo in The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot (which gifted us with an image of him which we endeavour to use in every news story about him ever).
The news of his contract extension came at an event in New York, where he simply said he had ‘just signed up for another year.’
Of course, there will be those who take this news negatively, but it’s impossible to deny Moffat’s role in securing the future of Doctor Who.
More Doctor Who news as it happens. Or, y’know, slightly after it happens. (Den of Geek)
