Glad that Moffat is quitting soon. He's a great writer, but I don't think the show has been as fun with him at the helm. Not sure how I feel abouts Toby Whithouse running DW, but he did well with Being Human. He writes great characters, but I'm afraid he'd steer too much to the Dark and dower side of DW, and I've had enough of that with Moffat.
Aren't these the highest rated Dr. Who episodes ever? In part that popularity has to be attributed to the writing being less "nerdy".
