Steven Moffat attacks Doctor Who spoilers

Chief writer wishes “they could go be fans of something else”

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.”
