Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat

Moffat: “This is Revenge”

Steven Moffat has been writing for years, and is responsible for some of the best TV of the past 20 years or so. From Press Gang back in the Children’s ITV days to Joking Apart, Coupling, Jekyll and on to Doctor Who and Sherlock, he’s been tuned into what gets audiences and critics enthusing – intentionally or not.

Doctor Who writer Steven MoffatThe Doctor Who executive producer recently spoke to the US media network NPR about his two current shows, as well as a few thoughts about why he became a writer.

The reasoning is a gem, actually, something that many (although I daresay not all) of us who write for a living can identify with.

“I’m a geek. I’m a writer. I spent all of my time in my childhood obsessing about Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who. I was alone, I was an outsider — what do you expect? I was that bullied kid at the back of the class weeping for loneliness. I don’t think, generally speaking, people become writers because they were the really good, really cool, attractive kid in class.

“I’ll be honest. This is our revenge for people who were much better looking and more popular than us. I was a bit like that, I suppose.”

This is a great audio feature, so we would recommend everyone who is a fan of Doctor Who and Sherlock to take the time to enjoy it!
