Moffat to Speak at TV Drama Writers’ Festival

Steven Moffat is among those set to speak at this year’s TV Drama Writers’ festival.

Moffat will deliver this year’s keynote speech, in conversation with fellow Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse, at the event being held at Leeds College of Music on June 26-27.

The event, organised by the BBC Writersroom, is curated by writers Emma Frost (The White Queen) and Jack Thorne (The Fades).

Also in attendance for sessions will be writers Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch), Dennis Kelly (Utopia), Bryan Elsley (Skins), Sally Wainwright (Last Tango in Halifax) and BBC Controller of Drama Ben Stephenson.

Kate Rowland, the BBC’s Creative Director of New Writing and Head of Writersroom said:

“As curators of the 2013 TV Writers’ Festival, Emma Frost and Jack Thorne, two of our most dynamic writers, have chosen the theme of conflict at the heart of drama and the art of being a writer.

With a keynote debate on sex and violence, the role of the Commissioner with Ben Stephenson and Anne Mensah, Chris Chibnall on Broadchurch and a Face to Face with the brilliant Steven Moffat, this year’s Festival is bound to provoke, entertain and challenge in equal measure.”

Applications for tickets to the event are now closed.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
