Posted Filed under

Steven Moffat has confirmed that he will remain as Doctor Who‘s showrunner for at least another year.

Writing in his column in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat revealed: “Sitting here, right now, just before [Series 8’s] finale shooting block, I’ve figured out the cliffhanger to the penultimate episode of the next series.”

He teased: “And it’s a whopper. Ohh, I don’t think you’ll see this coming!”


Moffat took over the role in 2009 from previous showrunner Russell T Davies.

By completing five series with Series 9, Moffat will have exceeded Russell T Davies’ four-series tenure on Doctor Who.

Series 8 is currently filming in Cardiff and will begin airing on BBC One in August.
