Blink wins BAFTA for Steven Moffat
The BAFTA TV Craft Awards were presented over the weekend and best writer went to Steven Moffat for his stunning Doctor Who story Blink. [The creepy one, with the statues that send people back in time - you remember.] If the BAFTA triumph doesn't sound impressive enough, consider the other writers and the projects for which they were nominated: Tony Marchant – The Mark of Cain; Jimmy McGovern – The Street; Heidi Thomas – Cranford. All acclaimed series, all celebrated writers and all beaten by a episode of Doctor Who. Six years ago the very idea was unthinkable, now it's fact.
