DOCTOR WHO: STEVEN MOFFATT SET TO WRITE MORE EPISODES IN NEW ERA
Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffatt, who ran the sci-fi series from 2010 to 2017, is set to return to write more episodes.
Reports suggest returning showrunner Russell T. Davies has approached Moffatt about writing more episodes for the new era of Doctor Who which launches later this year. Moffatt previous wrote under Davies' leadership from 2005-2008, before becoming showrunner himself in 2009.
A source told The Mirror: "Russell’s on a mission to make Doctor Who great again, event television not to be missed, which is what it was for many years during his and Steven’s tenures in charge of the show...
"One of the ways he can do that is to ensure he has the best possible people writing for the programme. He has nothing but respect for what Steven achieved with the show and was a fan of his vision as showrunner...
"He approached him about returning in just a writing capacity because he knows Doctor Who inside out and has a brilliant imagination for adventures in space and time. He took some convincing but the chance to contribute to a show he has loved since childhood and see it blossom in a new era with a new Doctor was just too much to resist."
Doctor Who is available on BBC iPlayer.
