Your views on everything going on in the hectic world of Doctor Who...

Last month, the news broke that Steven Moffat would be stepping down from his role as head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who in two years’ time, and Chris Chibnall would be taking his place for the 2018 series...

All change!

JENNIFER SHELDEN LEICESTER

I was saddened to see that Steven Moffat will be leaving Doctor Who after the next series (and that it won’t be aired until 2017, boo!). He will be missed. Some of his characters – Clara Oswald, River Song, Rory and Amy Pond, not to mention the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors – and many of his episodes have been up there with the very best of Doctor Who. I hope in a few years Chris Chibnall will feel able to ask Steven to write and few episodes and he will be able to oblige.

That said, I am looking forward to see what Chris can do, athough I do hope that the Twelfth Doctor stays. Peter Capaldi is the best thing about the show at the moment, it would be a shame if he felt obliged to go due to the change of management.

I’m very pleased and excited by the recent news that Mr Moffat is going to regenerate at the end of the next series. That’s not to say I’m glad to see the back of him – far from it! Despite having worked on Doctor Who for over ten years, he’s always managed to keep it fresh and new. And that’s why I’m excited now. Having a new guy at the top is automatically going to bring us something different, something new. Who knows what it’ll be like, but I’m already looking forward to it. It’s extraordinary to think that we’re all fans of a show that is now held in such esteem that the change of showrunner makes the news!
