In each of its first four series, Moffat contributed some of the most memorable and lauded episodes. He won the Hugo Award, among other honors, for his first three efforts, including the haunting and well-received episode 'Blink.'

That sense of continuity, though, is important in a series known for its sweeping changes, especially coming off of David Tennant's popular four-year run as The Doctor. Takings fans in a new direction under the hands of a familiar 'Doctor Who' collaborator should make the transition that much easier.
