Moffat Talks Casting at Cheltenham Festival

Doctor Who chief and all-round awesome writer, Steven Moffat, is to take part in the Radio Times’ Sherlock, The Doctor and Me talk at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Moffat, who’s first canon contribution to Doctor Who was 2005’s much-loved The Empty Child/ The Doctor Dances, will be talking about the 50th anniversary special, casting Doctors Eleven and Twelve, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi respectively, and the phenomenal success of his and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock, which is set to return to screens for a third series of three episodes later this year.

Cheltenham’s Literature Festival begins today and runs until 13th October, and Sherlock, The Doctor and Me takes place on the final day at the Town Hall, 3:45pm- 4:45pm. Drinks should be available from the Pillar Room Bar.

Tickets, priced £10, go on general release on Monday 7th October, but members can buy them (with a 10% discount) from Sunday.
