Doctor Who: Steven Moffat Talks Series 8 and His Future as Head Writer

Showrunner Steven Moffat has been talking about series eight of Doctor Who and his future as the showrunner.

On the current state of series eight, Moffat said:

“We have to work quite a long way in advance. The next season is plotted out. I always end up complaining about it, but it’s quite fun. I’m just making up nonsensical adventures, what’s wrong with that?”

And on how long he intended to remain showrunner, Moffat joked:

“Forever. We’re not letting anyone else do it.”

“You take it a year at a time, that’s all you can do. It’s such a commitment. It’s nine or ten months a year of work, so I think you can only really do that a year at a time anyway. And if you start thinking of the legacy now… we’ve got a long time to think about that, when people have forgotten us. We just want it to be great. All I ever worry about is the show that is coming out on Saturday.”
