Doctor Who chief writer Steven Moffat

Moffat Collects Special Award

Doctor Who chief writer Steven MoffatAs 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.
