Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013
He still did more writing on Torchwood and Dr. Who than Moffat has to do on Dr. Who and Sherlock.
RTD wrote a mere one episode of Torchwood for it's entire first 2 years? And only co-wrote one SJA episode in it's first 3 years?
And Moffat's written two eps. of Sherlock. Sherlock has also been around since 2010 and we've only had two seasons of three eps. each.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
