Moffat: Doctor Who is “knackering”

Steven Moffat has been interviewed in the most recent edition of US magazine, Entertainment Weekly (see the two Doctor Who covers HERE and picture shoot HERE). In it, the current showrunner reveals that his time on the show may be coming to an end; Moffat states:

“I just take it a year at a time. It is knackering work. I’ve stopped writing other shows before, and you just want to leave – not that you hate it, but just ‘I’m done’.”

Cameron K McEwan was the first owner and site editor of Blogtor Who since its creation in May 2008 until Dec 2015. A lifelong Doctor Who fan, Cameron has also written two books, The Who’s Who of Doctor Who and Doctor Who: The Big Book of Lists, and directed a film all about Doctor Who fans throughout the years, Who’s Changing - An Adventure In Time With Fans. Cameron also contributes TV and film news and reviews to BBC Radio London, Metro, Digital Spy, New York Observer and Den of Geek. He lives in London with his one trousers.


  1. He also said, "I think the feeling of it being done for you is quite unambiguous when it suddenly arrives." The fact that he's planning series 8 suggests that that feeling hasn't arrived, so he's unlikely to depart with the haste you desire.

  2. How about knock it off with Sherlock, then? That's not knackering at all then? That one's a effortless joy to whip together?

    I've been watching Sherlock get better and better as Who slides into soap opera land. How about focusing on ONE show (the FLAGSHIP!), doing it well, and relaxing when it's done? That just too crazy of a plan to consider? Dope.

    (Of course I'm writing like this because I'm sure he'll never see it. 😉 )
