It will be a sad day when Moffat decides to leave (not that he seems to have any plans to fortunately) because I don't really see anyone else of the same calibre who would take over.
JNT did love the show, but he said in retrospect, he should have just resigned after the 20th Anniversary. He was holding out for a new gig, initially his pitch for Impact, but neither materialised for him, sadly.
