Steven Moffat: 'Doctor Who will continue forever'
'Doctor Who' showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed his hope that the show will continue indefinitely.
Steven Moffat wants 'Doctor Who' to continue forever.
The showrunner says the sci-fi programme is now part of British culture and he hopes it will continue even when he is no longer in charge.
He told BBC Wales: "I think Doctor Who is permanent.
"I think it's part of our culture now - I think like 'Robin Hood', 'King Arthur', 'James Bond', the things that are eternal, there will always be a Doctor for every generation. Long may it continue."
And the current Doctor - Peter Capaldi - admitted that the love fans have for the show makes him feel extremely lucky.
He said: "It's a pretty amazing position to be in. It's lovely to feel the affection that people have for the show."
While Peter - who reprises his role as the titular Time Lord in the upcoming ninth series - revealed he wants David Bowie to appear in the show, he also admitted his hopes that Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards will guest star.
He said: "David Bowie, he would be a very good one" and "I'd like to see Richards stumbling around the Tardis, knocking out a few chords".
