Moff’s Paris Comic-Con Roundup
Blessed be to Friend of Kasterborous Aurélie Demonchaux, who has just been in touch with us to clarify just what went on at the Paris Comic Con with regards to Steven Moffat’s appearance there this weekend!
The following reportage can be considered the full facts about what went on, as opposed to our earlier Google Translate-inspired attempt!
- Both the Masterclass on Sherlock’s work as a writer and the Doctor Who conference were totally packed with people, who all greeted Le Grand Moff (=The Great Moff) properly as BBC Worldwide’s Christina Dunn reported on Twitter.
Do check out her other Tweets on #comicconparis as well.
- On Saturday, while the general public was treated with a brilliant Sherlock program in honor of Steven Moffat, the Moff himself met with many French journalists and the result is many interviews all over the French-speaking websites!
- “Le Village” has an excellent 10-minute-long bilingual video interview (I HIGHLY recommend it!) where Steven Moffat tells us about the “transition” between RTD’s era and Series 5, writing for different incarnations of the Doctor, about Madame de Pompadour and and many other topics – including about Sherlock
- During the Doctor Who conference in public, Steven Moffat said that there would be the same number of episodes for Series 7, however, the broadcasting pattern would change. Moffat then concluded “I’ll explain. Later.” Meanwhile, concerning the fiftieth anniversary season in 2013, Steven Moffat said he had ideas, but that he would not tell us yet.
Aurélie tells us that she’s barely scratched the surface of what happened at the event, and look out for more news concerning the event as we get it. Photos of the event can be found at the Beans on Toast forum, which now contains many pictures and reports and sharing of nice memories.
