Yeah, that'd have done too. The guy does seem to have been the randy one.

A midlife crisis from the Moff? Well, that would give him material for a fifth season of Coupling.
Sold! Reunion series time!

Certainly, he was very much the rake before meeting Sue...
"Between the marriages, I shagged my way round television studios like a mechanical digger. Sue and I got together at the Edinburgh TV Festival and she likes to tell the story of how I was en route to another date the night we met. Conveniently she's blanked from her memory the fact that she did the same. She was just as dreadful as me."

I'm a bit disappointed I'm not at GB anymore today. No doubt the Mods "Delete" button is getting worked overtime as they try to keep their BBC masters happy.
Or maybe as they try not to get sued?

So let's get this straight, in between running two shows, and spending time with his family, Moffat was also playing away from home? Seriously when would he find the time, or is this supposed to be the explanation why his scripts never come in on time?

And as evidence goes, the fact that as a single man he shagged about a bit is pretty thin given that's what a lot of single men (and in fact women) do before settling down with someone.

And even if they did have a thing, hardly crime of the century stuff is it?

Minus the sex and drugs. It will probably be one sentence

"Steven Moffat was lagging on script delivery."
So, in essence, Douglas Adams?

The news at GB today is that the moderators are tired of people being mean to one another and that they are no longer going to warn people to dial it back before they pull out the banhammer.

It's the members who can't into complex emotional structures.

From the latest issues of Private Eye.



The last time they did a story on behind-the-scenes problems on the series the BBC rushed out a reply. I wonder if they'll do the same this time?

Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

Moffat comes off like a three-year-old having a tantrum if that quote is accurate.

Well if you remember the way he acted on Twitter it seems pretty believable.

Was there a bit of wine at this party? If true, For a grown man, that comment comes off as something a drunk would say

True that.

The Gallifrey Base mods are having fun with this Private Eye article, closing threads and deleting posts if there's any discussion of the final paragraph.
