Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013
Yeah I do think Moffat would probably be better off simply being the head writer for these shows, instead of also being the producer/showrunner.
Making DW alone is probably a massive enough challenge every year; I can't imagine also having to produce three 90-minute, feature-quality Sherlock episodes.
And yet RTD was able to produce three series at the same time.
