For his sterling television work since the late 1980’s, Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat was awarded a BAFTA Television Special Award, presented by two of Britain’s most famous TV actors who’ve recently made their name acting in his shows.
Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith were there to hand over the trophy and pour adulation on the writer/producer. It’s a great honour for the highly talented and already pretty award laden man. Hell, he’s the guy that wrote not only Coupling, and Sherlock but also the Doctor Who episodes The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, Blink, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, The Eleventh Hour, A Christmas Carol, A Good Man Goes To War and The Doctor The Widow And The Wardrobe. That’s a lot of good episodes.That’s three of my top five episodes and my two favourite Christmas special.
