This just in: writer Steven Moffat will replace Russell T. Davies as Lead Writer and Executive Producer on Doctor Who.
This is the only news I can think of that can console me for the seemingly imminent departure of David Tennant (when an Ood says to the Doctor, “Your song must come to an end,” it kinda seems like another regeneration is coming soon).
I love Steven Moffat’s writing, both in Coupling and in the Doctor Who episodes he’s done: “The Empty Child,” “The Girl in the Fireplace,” and, the best of them all, “Blink.” He knows how to structure an episode like no one else, and he comes up with some of the most memorable one-liners in the business:
“Are you my mummy?”
“I just snogged Madame de Pompadour!”
