Steven Moffat news

Recommended Posts

To be fair, all of them have always said they'd only do it so long as they thought they could keep the quality up. And if interest is waning, that's hard to do.
 
I do suspect Moffat might actually have "something" in mind, because he used to mention how he'd like to follow the characters into their more, ahem, "senior" years. (And I remember one time the audience crying "noooooo!" when he said it. :smile: ) But it also sounds to me like the level of attention -- especially the negativism -- has taken some of the fun out of working on the show, for everyone. Remember how gleeful they all used to be?

I still wouldn't be surprised to see a special, some 5-10 (15-20?) years down the road .....

Yep, someone will find a way to turn those remarks against him.

 

Did I ever get around to posting the link to this? Moffat giving a presentation on how to write a successful TV show (short answer: "I don't know.")

This was fantastic. Just give people enough time and things get so much better.

 

I wonder if Steven used a prompter. This speech was so good.

 

And I couldn't help but seeing his inner teacher showing. :D

He was a teacher in his early working years, wasn't he? I didn't Watch the whole interview, but you can believe me: he remembers the job! A teacher one day, a teacher forever :D :D!

I've listened to it while doing dishes and some other things, thanks to his mercy for the translator. His English was what we, poor non-native speakers, dream of, so I didn't have to concentrate exclusively on it with eyes and ears. The only downside is that the Korean questions weren't translated and you could only guess them from the answers.

 

This one girl asked something johlock-ey, I assume something about the guys having a "deeper" relationship and I loved Moff's answer to that.

Was he? If I ever heard that, I had forgotten. Cool! No wonder I feel an affinity for him. :smile: He strikes me as the kind of teacher I would have really enjoyed learning from.

 

I admit I haven't heard it all the way through yet (2 hours, isn't it?) I think I'm going to follow your lead, JP, and listen to it while I do dinner. Laterz!

The same about the thought of SM being my teacher. But I've known two teachers with a similar sense of humor and wits, and I'm afraid he would be a pest for those he saw as stupid. But for me he would be a constant incentive to show him I'm not one of them.

I agree.  Memo to people making bi-lingual videos:  Remember that your audience will be composed mostly of people who understand only one language or the other.  Make sure to subtitle-translate *both* languages.

SM mentionned having been a teacher in his early years in an interview to the French TV magazine "Télérama", but that was a few years ago. I'll try to find a link, but it will be in French, if ever published online...

According to Wikipedia, "After gaining an MA degree in English from Glasgow, he worked as a teacher for three and a half years at Cowdenknowes High School, Greenock."

Hello Tobythebloodhound -- welcome to Sherlock Forum!  :welcome:

 

As I understand it, Steven Moffat is currently working with Mark Gatiss on a new Dracula.  Just Google

 

Moffat Gatiss Dracula

 

... and you should get all the info that's currently available.  They do seem to be keeping it pretty hush-hush, though.
