Mo' Moffat.

Last night's instalment of Rich Johnston's LYING IN THE GUTTERS was more concerned about his gushing fannishness towards Steven Moffat than his usual stock-in-trade. What I like about Rich's collection of Moffat-based rumours and supposition is that, reading between the lines, it looks like the incoming showrunner is prepared to cast his net a little bit wider than Davies to find good writers for the series (like tapping up Neil Gaiman, or extending an olive branch to Rob Shearman).

This is a good thing, because the current hit rate of only four-or-five great episodes a season to eight-or-nine episodes of filler could be killing the show.
