Moff: All Who is Brilliant

At th recent BAFTA screening of The Pandorica Opens, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat spoke about how far Doctor Who has come since its unfashionable days.

Doctor Who writer Steven MoffatIn response to an observation about how classic Doctor Who would never have had such an occasion, Moffat said:

“I hate this orthodoxy that Doctor Who suddenly became good in 2005 – that’s not true. I didn’t fall in love with that show because it was rubbish – it was because it was brilliant.”

The Grand Moff also simply identified why the show is now much more popular, something that can be attributed to a  fresh perspective from the viewing public. Not so, says Moffat:

“All of us who grew up watching nothing but Doctor Who all day long took over television!”

Remember – The Pandorica Opens airs on Saturdy evening at 6.40pm on BBC One
