Goodbye, Steven Moffat – Doctor Who Showrunner Replaced by Chris Chibnall

Steven Moffat

So, the news has finally been released. Steven Moffat will move on from Doctor Who after Series 10, with Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall taking his place with Series 11 in 2018.

To discuss a turn of events that seem so late, if they were a train the conductor wouldn’t bother checking tickets, Christian Cawley and James McLean welcome Gareth Kavanagh to the show this week. We look at the timing of the announcement, read between the lines of the BBC statement, and consider some of Chibnall’s various successes and failures in the past in the world of Doctor Who and beyond.

Will Doctor Who miss Steven Moffat? Time will tell…
