Steven Moffat to Step Down as Doctor Who Showrunner

BBC America is reporting that Steven Moffat will step down as the lead writer and executive producer for Doctor Who.  He will be replaced by Chris Chibnall, who is the creator of the series Broadchurch.  Moffat's final season will air in Spring 2017 in the American market.

I've pretty much been over Moffat's run on Doctor Who since season 6, and just biding my time until he resigned (an inevitability of some sort) or said something inflammatory enough in an interview to get him fired (he has been known to say some shitty stuff).  Overall, I'm looking forward to a time that I can actually enjoy Doctor Who again.
