    Thing is even with the extra time he still doesn't get them done on time. They're literally only making one episode in nine months and the production departments were still waiting on the Anniversary script four weeks before shooting was due to start.

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

    "Steven Moffat was lagging on script delivery."

    Minus the sex maybe.

    Ask Piers Wenger about the drugs.

    Having just heard (allegedly) why she quit I'd have to agree now.

    Looks like it wasn't just JNT who needed to keep his dick in his pants at work.

    We're talking about a guy who in an interview for The Scotsman in 2010 outright said "I shagged my way around the television studios"...

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

    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? :rolleyes:

    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?

    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.

    After recent happenings I haven't dared to even look outside Inferno and Movieland :rolleyes:

    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?

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