Steven Moffat Quits Twitter

Despite mentioning days previous that he was looking for a way to limit who could follow or tweet him, according to his wife and producing partner at Hartswood Films, Sue Vertue, took to Twitter to say Moffat simply doesn’t have time to tweet anymore:

However, the eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted that the account mentioned in her tweet isn’t Steven Moffat’s – its an older, fake account – leading to this very telling reply:

Now, it could just be a general comment on the trolling, dishonest and downright rude faction of Twitter users who spread insults on the site or it could be just a little piece of the abuse that Moffat has clearly had enough of.

Whatever his reasons, only time will tell if Moffat decides to one day to reengage true Doctor Who fans who don’t bait the show’s fantastic creative team.


Andrew has left Kasterborous. Any article that appears on the site past February 2016 claiming to be written by Andrew Reynolds has been done so maliciously and without the authors consent.
