Steven Moffat Article in Radio Times

Steven Moffat Article in Radio Times

Writing in the Christmas issue of Radio Times, on sale until 27 December, Steven Moffat describes how he wrote the Christmas special holed in a hotel room in LA during the volcanic ash cloud earlier this year:

“Iā€™m trying to think Christmas! Crunchy snow and roaring fires! Scarves and stamping your feet warm and spicy wine and mince pies. Clearly I was in the wrongest place ever! Two days of writing nothing, and I took emergency measures. I downloaded every Christmas song I could find, closed all the curtains, and turned up the air conditioning to Doctor Zhivago, and sat at my desk in a big coat and mittens.ā€

You can read the full article along with a glimpse into a year in the life of Matt Smith in the Radio Times.

Below shows this years Christmas Radio Times Cover. Doctor who has enjoyed many covers over the years and you can see them all in the Radio Times gallery Here. You can also see a photo shoot from last weeks Doctor Who cover Here.
