Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat addressed the topic of Doctor Who spinoffs -- and the current lack thereof -- in a recent interview. And, to make a long story short, the man is simply to busy to oversee something as large as his predecessor Russell T. Davies' Torchwood or The Sarah Jane Adventures.
"I'm not against it. Spinoff shows happen because you think 'That is so good, you should spin it off' - but personally I'm relatively busy," Moffat said last week.
Executive producer Caroline Skinner wouldn't rule out the possibility, though, following up Moffat's comments with a "You never know."
But, as Geeks of Doom points out, Moffat's tenure on Who hasn't exactly provided a wealth of characters who could carry a show on their own. There's Amy and Rory, of course, but an as-yet-unknown tragedy is set to befall them five episodes into the upcoming season of the show.
If Moffat were to create a spinoff, who would you like to see starring in it?
