Speaking to Radio Five Live, Doctor Who‘s chief writer attacked fans who ‘spoil’ the show ahead of broadcast, saying, “You can imagine how much I hate them. It’s only fans who do this, or they call themselves fans.
“I wish they could go and be fans of something else. It’s heartbreaking in a way because you’re trying to tell stories, and stories depend on surprise”, said Steven Moffat.”So to have some twit who came to a press launch, write up a story in the worst, most ham-fisted English you can imagine, and put it on the internet.
“I just hope that guy never watched my show again, because that’s a horrific thing to do.”
