Should Doctor Who have a new head writer?Posted by: Zylorarchy
This is NOT a Steven Moffat bashing poll at all, this is a genuine poll. He has my respect and always will do for his work on the show. However, is it time for a change?
It's time for a change. Steven himself writes amazing episodes, it's the others which are often lacking. Steven has led Doctor Who for 4 series, and will do so for the 5th. After that I think we need someone fresh. Though I would be thrilled if he stayed on, not as head writer, but as someone who wrote some episodes per series.
Steven never had great plots that followed the characters through the whole season. I felt they often ended anticlimactically with too much deus ex machina. He does a great job writing one off episodes that are reminiscent of classic who.
