Steven Moffat interviewed

There’s quite a nice interview with Steven Moffat over on Ain’t It Cool News, in which he discusses writing for Doctor Who, his new mini-series and that Comic Relief sketch. In particular, he has interesting takes on writing for children and comes up with the classic: “Two of the words that you could reasonably apply to the Daleks are ‘reliably defeatable.’”


  • I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
