Steven Moffat Speaks Out Against Spoilers

Today, Steven Moffat has spoken out about fans that reveal spoilers about the episode before it has even aired, he called people who do reveal spoilers as horrific.

Speaking this morning on BBC Radio 5, he talked about spoilers that were uncovered about the Series 6 opener:

“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, 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.” 

“Stories depend on shocking people. Stories are the moments that you didn’t see coming, that are what live in you and burn in you forever. If you are denied those, it’s vandalism.”
