The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
Inheriting a 50-year-old television series is no easy task, but Moffat’s short tenure at the helm of the British cult hit has seen him increase the time-traveling drama’s global footprint considerably — not to mention making it the top show on stateside carrier BBC America. Its Christmas special, with 1.43 million viewers, also was a record breaker for BBC America. This year, Moffat, 51, who also is a busy screenwriter, takes the lead on the golden anniversary festivities, including a rare episodic simulcast in the U.S. and the U.K. (while juggling writing duties on Sherlock) and planning a high-profile change of the guard when Peter Capaldi takes the titular role from outgoing star Matt Smith.
