Steven Moffat talks to Den of Geek

The Head Writer and Executive Producer of Doctor Who, Steven Moffat, has recently been interviewed by Den of Geek. The writer reveals that he is penning 6 episodes for the next series (including this year's Christmas Special) and also talks about his contemporary version of 'Sherlock', which is currently airing on BBC One.

It’s been said if all this goes to plan, that there’s going to be more Sherlock. How does that fit with balancing your own workload? Are you keen to write more of these? Have you worked out how many episodes of Doctor Who you’re writing for next year?
I’m doing the Christmas special plus five, so it’s the same. Six again.

Six, including the Christmas special?
Yeah. I’m basically following what Russell did. Having worked out the sums and worked out how he does it, I thought that’s a perfect way of doing it.

But there is a no way of balancing this. The last year has been extraordinary. I’ve had about four days off, and that includes Christmas day. I work every weekend, I get up early in the morning, I go to bed late at night. There is no way of balancing it.

It’s extraordinary, but it’s great fun too! Great fun, so long as it doesn’t kill me.
