It was reported earlier today (December 21) that the 50-year-old showrunner hasn't been able to "relax" since taking charge of the BBC sci-fi programme in 2009, and was starting to struggle with the "relentless" scrutiny placed upon the programme.
"I never find any time to relax," The Mirror quoted Moffat as saying. "All the stuff that surrounds it can be relentless.
"I haven't got a plan but I am definitely going to be handing it to someone else."
However, Moffat has since tweeted that the report is not true.
Moffat took to Twitter back in September to declare that he was becoming "tired" of being abused by Doctor Who fans.
It was revealed last week that Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams) will make a "heartbreaking" departure from Doctor Who in 2012.
