31/07/2008: we haven't quite managed to get to the bottom of this one yet - but reports over the weekend in the Daily Express suggest Press Gang may be set to return, spawning a blog at The Guardian. More on this once we've applied the thumbscrews to the usual suspects...

11/07/2008: Jason Arnopp has posted some "outtakes" from his recent Moff interview for Doctor Who Magazine - you can read this exclusive content on Jason's blog.

20/06/2008: you can now download two podcasts about Jekyll from British Invaders.

18/06/2008: The Moff's interview with Big Issue Scotland is reprinted in Big Issue Wales this week (16-22 June)

03/06/2008: we now have a gorgeous selection of icons from Silence in the Library, which you can find here.

23/05/2008: The countdown to Silence in the Library has begun over at the BBC's official Doctor Who website. You also watch an extended mid-season trailer on YouTube here. Steven and Sue Vertue attended the gala premiere of Never Forget last night, so we can only conclude that Doctor Who the Musical can't be very far away... J

20/05/2008: Firstly, my apologies. Its taken me a few hours to get the site caught up with the rest of the world following today's Big News, and the site counter has been going bananas... We knew it was coming, just not precisely when. And so, just in case anyone missed the memo...


Steven Moffat will be Lead Writer and Executive Producer of the 5th series of Doctor Who.

[BBC press release] [Media Guardian] [The Stage] [The Hollywood Reporter]


We are truly delighted to be able to finally report this news as fact.  The lovely Cindy White interviewed SM last July for SciFi.com and caused a flurry of speculation by reporting a certain hesitation in answering the question of RTD's successor... and we've had to wait nearly a year before anyone admitted it officially.


"My entire career has been a Secret Plan to get this job. I applied before but I got knocked back 'cos the BBC wanted someone else. Also I was seven."


The self-depreciating humour is typical, and whilst we don't buy for one minute that Spike and Lynda are merely the by-products of a cunning strategy spanning four decades, we can rejoice in the fact that the fanboy gene has been evident since Page One. We are extremely excited at the prospect of The Moff in charge, and suspect that, amongst other things, it will mean more cleavage and snogging on Saturday nights. And of course we are already looking forward to Terror on Talwinning Street, because the wheel has to turn full circle...


This website will continue to follow and support Steven Moffat's career, whatever the project. Doctor Who will remain an important part of our coverage, but we have no intention of forgetting the other elements of the Moffat Master Plan.


Very proudly celebrating the astonishing tenacity of that seven year old Moff finally realising his dream,



12/05/2008: WINNER!!!  Congratulations to The Moff, who scooped his "grown up" BAFTA for Best Writer last night the Television Craft Awards from under the noses of some weighty competition.

09/05/2008: fancy an excuse to stare at The Dex for hours? Try our all-new SpikeJongg!

07/05/2008: Robbed!!  Sadly Jekyll missed out on an award at the Rose d'Or Festival this week. Time to send Mr Hyde round to pay the judges a little visit...

29/04/2008: we've had a quiet couple of weeks on sm.net, and so it appears that to liven things up a bit, a certain person has only gone and won the BAFTA Cymru Award for Best Screenwriter...  "Enilledig a 'n waedlyd BAFTA!" (apparently) We now have everything crossed for the forthcoming BAFTA Television Craft Awards on May 11.

06/04/2008: we're hearing whispers that the Screaming Angel variant from Blink is finally available from Character Options. We'll post links to suppliers when we track them down...

04/04/2008: it's been reported on the CBBC website that River's Run has been retitled Forest of the Dead.

30/03/2008: new articles posted - Joking Apart Series 2 and The Week and Pizza.

28/03/2008: nominations for the BAFTA Television Craft Awards were announced earlier this week... and no prizes for guessing who made the shortlist. Blink faces some stiff competition, with The Moff up against TV heavyweights Tony Marchant and Jimmy McGovern. But we'd like to be able to say "won a bloody BAFTA!" again after 18 years, so naturally we have everything crossed. The BAFTA Craft Awards take place on May 11.

25/03/2008: to mark the release of Joking Apart Series 2 on DVD, you can now play JokingJongg. Enjoy!

26/03/2008: it's lovely when Press Gang unexpectedly hijacks your train journey home, and all the nicer when there is photo of Spike involved...

25/01/2008: obviously we are reluctant to mention the chance of Yet Another Award, but Blink has been put up for consideration for a BAFTA Craft Award, and features in the 2007 Preliminary Nebula Ballot. We strongly suspect someone will soon be needing a bigger mantelpiece...

31/12/2007: Blink featured in Channel 4's Big Fat Quiz of the Year, although only Jonathan Ross and Lily Allen correctly remembered what happens if you blink... Rob Brydon and David Mitchell had clearly watched the story but were fuzzy on the detail, whilst the Goth Detectives resorted to cheating. Badly. Still, we remain dead chuffed that the question itself makes the Weeping Angels 2007's most memorable TV moment...

Also reported on the BBC's  Doctor Who news pages, with an amusing quote from The Moff.

02/10/2007: We can (finally!!) report the Big Secret... The Moff is currently working on the new Tintin movie with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. Quite suddenly, all Frazz's sartorial choices (and Patrick's hair!!) begin to make sense. Announced online at the Hollywood Reporter. Can this mean the next project will be entitled Muscle Beach?!?!

15/09/2007: Blink's Weeping Angels have been voted Scariest Monster, taking a massive 55% of the vote, in Issue #38 of Doctor Who Adventures, on sale now.

03/09/2007: apologies for the late-breaking news, but we have a winner...!  The Moff scooped the 2007 Hugo for Best Dramatic Presentation Short Form, beating off stiff competition from fellow Who scribes Russell T Davies and Toby Whithouse.
