After the 10th season of Doctor Who airs in 2017, Steven Moffat will step down as showrunner for the series. Since the show began in 2005, Moffat has been involved with modern Who, first as a writer and then taking the reins from Russell T Davies with the show’s fifth season. His episodes as a writer under Davies were often some of the best in the series, but once he became head writer and executive producer of the show Moffat’s work was often not up to the same quality, and issues with him being in charge were all too clear.
Now that we have to wait until Christmas for more Doctor Who and know we soon have to say goodbye to Moffat, it seems like the perfect time to look back at all the episodes he wrote for the show. From episodes that, to me, are easily some of the best ever written for Doctor Who to those that left me shaking my head, here’s my ranking of the full-length episodes written by Moffat.
