‘Cause Moffat has dropped hints he’s “nearer the end than the beginning” in his writing career for Doctor Who, so they’ll need a new showrunner. Toby Whithouse is already familiar with Doctor Who, having written four episodes ( A Town Called Mercy, The God Complex, The Vampires of Venice, and School Reunion).
And he was the main writer for Being Human. And Being Human, for me, excelled in two main areas: hilariousness
(And the Real Hustle Scene, which really has to be seen to be believed)
and heartwarming friendship moments.
Also he looks like this:
He likes interacting with fans as well - I refer you to the Being Human Blog.
But most importantly, he understands what it’s all about. Case in point:
“In the company of horrors, I learned about friendship and loyalty, sacrifice and courage. Humanity isn’t a species, it’s a state of mind. It can’t be defeated, it moves mountains, it saves souls. We were blessed as much as we were cursed. In this little enclave of the lost I witnessed the very best of being human.”
QED. Hire the guy already.
She can absolutely wear lipstick, I’m all for lipstick, lipstick is great! But this isn’t an isolated thing. Seriously, you have to look pretty fucking hard to find a female character who isn’t somehow sexualized (except when they’re Mums).

No, internet, you’ve got it wrong, see? The three clues for Sherlock series 3 are obviously Rat, Wedding, and Giggle.
i’m gonna fight ‘em all
a seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
inspired by this post about a fem!moran (particularly a line about her tattoos) adsgh if this actually happened oh man
oh and in case you care, the line in hindi between her shoulder-blades means ‘if there’s life, there’s the world’ yeah mm i like me some deep shit and also that’s the british royal marines crest on her left arm
I still sorta hope for a female Moran, simply because Moran from the books is such a classically male character: he’s the Great White Hunter, the card sharp, the cold sniper, the officer-and-a-gentleman. He’s explicitly described as “virile” and he even has a great big bristly mustache. And taking that character and making him female (without changing the original personality and characteristics) would be a ideal way for Steven Moffat to react to the (justified, IMO) criticisms of misogyny and sexism.
Although even if he would, she’d probably turn out to be a collection of clichés taken from the butch-lesbian-cliché-grab-bag. And still it would be better than yet another straight white cis-bloke.
A transgender character would obvs be awesome too, but considering Moffat’s pretty gender-essentialist at the best of times, that isn’t very likely to happen. Unfortunately.
‘He has this amazing ability to conjure up this sort of blank-eyed desolation of a man too clever, too clever to exist almost’
