Steven MoffatDoctor Who Showrunner Steven Moffat has stated he has no immediately plans to quit the BBC sci-fi series.

{jcomments on}In an interview with AOL TV the writer – who also pens fellow BBC One hit Sherlock – has insisted he has no immediate plans to leave Doctor Who. Moffat took over from Russell T. Davies in 2010 and re-launched Doctor Who with a brand new Doctor (Matt Smith), new companions (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) as well as new Tardis control room and opening titles. The remainder of Moffat’s second season in charge is currently airing on BBC One and the BBC has already ordered another series and a further Christmas Special with filming due to start on this year’s festive special shortly.

“I haven’t got any kind of plans to leave,. I take it one season at a time……. I’d like to get out before it kills me. But it’s not killing me at the moment. I’m loving doing it, so I have no immediate plans to leave.” – Steve Moffat speaking to AOL TV.

Russell T. Davies oversaw four full seasons of Doctor Who, as showrunner, and several specials in 2009. During his tenure on Doctor Who he also launched spin-offs Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. However, most of his writing duties were for Doctor Who rather than the spin-offs.
