As reported last week, Steven Moffat has been awarded Bafta’s special award, and last night attended the ceremony alongside his wife and work partner Sue Vertue, Doctor Who and Sherlock co-writer Mark Gatiss and the stars of both shows.
It was a mixed evening but a good chance to take a look at the evolution of Moffat’s career from Press Gang via Joking Apart and Coupling – there was even a glance at Chalk – all the way through to Doctor Who from his 2005 episodes to date, and Moffat was presented with his award by Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch.
However: his speech of acceptance has raised a few eyebrows across the country and the web, having as it did a tone that has been described as particularly smug. Whether it was the editing or the event itself, Moffat’s opening lines appeared to leave the viewing audience at the ceremony… cold.
