Hate is such a strong word, but in this case, might very well be justified.
This may be old news by now, but it’s well worth repeating for those that need to read it again and again. Seems as though the all-around greatness of Doctor Who head-writer, Steven Moffat, has finally had enough of ‘fans’ that make it their life’s ambition to be the first to reveal crucial plot lines, or, spoilers, for what has, after only three weeks, become pretty amazing television. In an interview on BBC Radio 5, Moffat targeted a few fans that attended a press screening prior to the season premiere….fans who were specifically asked by the production team not to do as such until after the 2-part premiere transmitted.
“It’s heartbreaking in a way because you’re trying to tell stories, and stories depend on surprise,” said Moffat, who went on to say, “…stories depend on shocking people,” he said. “Stories are the moments that you didn’t see coming, that are what live in you and burn in you forever. If you are denied those, it’s vandalism.”
BTW, want to hear what happens in Sherlock 2, which is going through read-throughs this week? Wait. On second thought, never mind.
