‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: don’t spoil ‘Doctor Who’ or Steven Moffat will hate you

No, really. Via BBC News:

Doctor Who boss ‘hates’ fans who spoil show’s secrets

Doctor Who chief writer Steven Moffat has attacked fans of the show who reveal crucial plot lines ahead of transmission.

“You can imagine how much I hate them,” he told BBC Radio 5 live. “It’s only fans who do this, or they call themselves fans.

“I wish they could go and be fans of something else.”

Before the current series began, a fan posted the entire plot of the first two episodes on an internet forum.

They were among a number of fans who were invited to a press screening, at which the production team asked people not to give away spoilers.

“It’s heartbreaking in a way because you’re trying to tell stories, and stories depend on surprise,” said Moffat.

“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 [is heartbreaking].

“I just hope that guy never watched my show again, because that’s a horrific thing to do.”

Morning TV video here, but probably available only via U.K. IP addreses. But you know how to fake that, don’t you?
