Yesterday, as part of a series of Facebook posts in which Doctor Who Missing Episode recoverer Philip Morris talked trash about Steven Moffat‘s run on the show, Morris reported what he claimed were well sourced rumours regarding Moffat’s replacement on Doctor Who as showrunner, namely Anthony Horowitz.
He then tweeted the rumour to UK journalists on Twitter, though after Bleeding Cool’s post, they were deleted.
Sadly Horowitz, currently preparing for the release of his new novel Moriarty, was having none of it, telling Twitter.

Which is nice and succinct. Not quite “THEY ARE NOT MISSING BUT DESTROYED THE END.”, but close. Possibly Morris should have waited till some kind of official announcement. So now we’re back to the regular debates regarding Chris Chibnall, Toby Jordan, Mark Gatiss, Gareth Roberts, Phil Ford etc etc etc…
Or maybe just continue to enjoy Moffat’s run on the show, for as long as we are lucky to have him.
UPDATE: Philip Morris has let us know,
@bleedingcool Another nonessential article from bleeding cool .bit like your missing episode coverage
