|A Young Moffat|
We know that previously, they had who took over sorted out before the writing of Series 4 finished. Moffat has also recently exclaimed in an interview that "I'm nearer the end than the beginning", which in itself strongly hints that series 8 is the last.
Lets also not forget about how long executive producers stay for is on average, aside from the rare circumstance, less time than Moffat has already served.
How strongly could this be hinting for Moffat's leaving, or could this simply be due to the fact that they must make up for the recent announcements of (exec) producers moving on, ie. Marcus Wilson and Caroline Skinner? While Skinner does have a replacement announced, Faith Penhale, it is unclear whether she is here just for the 50th or for series 8 and maybe beyond as well.

What do you think? Do you want him gone? Would you preferred he reigned supreme for eternity? Do you think he will be gone?
