Steven Moffat is a Scottish television writer and producer.
Moffat's first television work was the teen drama series Press Gang.
The first sitcom he wrote called Joking Apart was inspired by the breakdown of his first marriage.
Conversely, his later sitcom Coupling was based on the development of his relationship with television producer Sue Vertue. Between the two relationship-centered shows, he wrote Chalk, a sitcom set in a comprehensive school inspired by his own experience as an English teacher.
A lifelong fan of Doctor Who, Moffat has written several episodes of the revived series and will succeed Russell T Davies as lead writer and executive producer as of its fifth series in 2010. He has scripted the first The Adventures of Tintin film for director Steven Spielberg.
Many of the programmes upon which he has worked have won awards, including BAFTAs and Hugo Awards for some of his episodes of Doctor Who.
