Steven Moffat to become Who Executive Producer

21 May 2008

Steven Moffat getting his BAFTA

Wonderful news for the future of Dr Who today, not that Russell T Davies is to step down as Executive Producer, but that Steven Moffat will replace him.

Steven is the writer that consistently writes the stand-out stories in each season – The Empty Child, The Girl in the Fireplace and Blink. Whenever Mr Oxton tells me ‘last weeks episode was a bit meh”, I always tell him to wait for the Moffat story, then you’ll be impressed. ‘Silence in the Library’ is the next Moffat story (in 2 weeks time, because of a break for Eurovision – grrr!).

I’m very appreciative of everything Russell has done for Dr Who. I may not agree with all his decisions, but without him, there would be be no show to get all ‘comic book store guy’ about in the first place. Plus, I still think Gridlock was a darned good story. However, I think Who can only get better under Steven’s guidance. Yay!

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
