Total Eclipse of the Hearts

Steven Moffat, Doctor Who showrunner and HUGO award winnerNew Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed how taking over the the long running show has dominated his life – in philosophical manner.

Moffat has been developing the upcoming 2010 series of Doctor Who since taking the job in summer 2008 – and told Doctor Who Magazine that he was confused to begin with about taking the job.

Thankfully the early jitters soon passed – leaving Moffat to face up to the fact that although he would be writing and running Doctor Who, certain other things wouldn’t happen.

“There will be a number of things I’ll never, ever write, because I’m doing Doctor Who. There will be a number of things I’ll never do because I’m doing Doctor Who.

“I know what they are! There will be things that won’t happen. Doctor Who is like an eclipse. It blocks out the sun. It’s knackering.”
