WATCH: ‘Doctor Who’ Scribe Steven Moffat Answers Fan With One Delicious Word

Steven Moffat

Gotta love Steven Moffat. The man has written some of the most verbally expansive characters in British television history — Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Sherlock, Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor, Jack Davenport‘s Steve Taylor — yet he also knows the value of concision.

So when Facebook fan Rogina Lewis asks the Doctor Who writer/exec producer, “Are we going to see any more aliens or characters from the original series?” — he simply answers with one tantalizing word and nothing more.

Savor the morsel below:

Also, Karen Gillan and Matt Smith have also both answered questions from Facebook fans. Check out their responses.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
