Former Dr Who showrunner confirms he's done with series
Steven Moffat is bowing out with the release of his audio drama The Best of Days.
Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has confirmed that he’s officially finished with the iconic sci-fi series.
The announcement came with the release of his new mini episode The Best of Days, an audio drama which catches up with former companions Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas).
“Really pleased – mostly because of what everybody else did” he wrote in an Instagram post promoting the new episode. "But this – THIS – finally ... is ... IT! Bang! Kerpow! I'm out of here!”
He went on to reveal that he had originally intended to leave the show sooner, but kept returning to pen new episodes.
"I planned to leave with The Husbands Of River Song. Then it was The Doctor Falls. And then it was Twice Upon A Time.
"And then I novelised Day Of The Doctor and that was going to be the very end. And then Chris got me to write Terror Of The Umpty Ums and Emily got me writing online minisodes.”
Doctor Who fans have been treated to a wealth of new content during lockdown.
Moffat, current showrunner Chris Chibnall and Russell T. Davis, who got the revival off the ground in 2005, have all released new skits, original short stories and audio dramas over the last couple of months.
You can stream the first ten seasons of Doctor Who on Netflix now.
