Moffat’s Threats?

Another year and another bit of divided fandom in the Doctor Who world that has split a lot of people’s opinion up. Last year it was over whether Matt Smith would be any good as the Eleventh Doctor, the year before that it was smaller things like “was it the Rassilon that the Doctor was fighting?”.

This year, a whole new split has appeared over the reveal of who River Song actually is. Let’s face it, as fun as the secret was, Moffat made an excellent point in Doctor Who Confidential when saying that he wanted to layer the reveal so that it wasn’t an ending to the story at all but more over a breather to give followers of the story of River Song and the Doctor some kind of reward. It was never going to be quite how we expected it and it was definitely never going to be the end.

But some viewers aren’t all together happy about the situation and have even gone as far as sending out death threats to the show runner to show their contempt at his latest move, which just seems so… silly.

Moff Tweeted:

“Only one death threat, two demands for my immediate resignation, and two for my suicide… IT’S A HIT!!”

Unless this is a joke on his part, this does seem like one of the most ludicrous things for anyone to do: “I didn’t like your episode so now I want you dead”?! If you don’t like the show he’s making, don’t watch it.

Besides which, you don’t want to cross Steven Moffat… those stories you hear about him, they’re not stories – they’re true.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
