Doctor Who (Saturday nights, 9pm, BBC America)
By Heather S. Vina

There have been rumors for every season, but this time, it’s official: Steven Moffat is leaving Doctor Who at the end of Season Ten. Writer Chris Chibnall will be taking over showrunner duties. Chris wrote the two-parter, “The Hungry Earth” and “Cold Blood” in Season Five, as well as “Dinosaurs on A Spaceship” and “The Power Of Three” in Season Seven, which are not among my favorites. Hopefully, he will run the show better than he writes it!

In more sad news, the new season will not debut until Spring 2017. Though there will be a Christmas special in 2016, that will be it for new Who for the year.
