Ooh, I hadn't heard that! This is excellent. (Consider--a man who, in his own words, writes fanfiction for a living is being awarded an OBE!)

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

I'm happy as well Moffat gets rewarded. 
Anyhow I feel that everybody who is not happy with developments of characters, creative decisions or character treats should be free to voice his or her personal opinion without the fear of an eye roll. Everybody who is fine with everything at present should consider that there might be fans who fell in love and are heartbroken.

I have no idea what your original comment was, Ah-chie, but I feel that your sarcasm is not justified by anything I have read in this thread.

Interesting choice of words. Where did anyone on this board ever slam the writers/creators...? People voice their opinions, yes, but I think everybody here who has been on the board for a while and participates on a regular basis has always been doing this with respect.

I have no idea what you are talking about, Ahchie, but I would not accept an apology in this tone.

Sorry to have made the joke in the first place.

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Here's the official notification from the London Gazette for Steven Moffat's OBE...

The link will take you to Page B2 so you have to click at the top and go to page B14 to find Moffat's name - it's 11th from the top on the left hand side of the page.

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/61256/supplement/B2

He has received his honour for "services to Drama".

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Here's a link to an interview given by Moffat about being awarded the OBE .  You have to scroll down through the article until you get to the section titled "High Profile Leaks" and there is a clickable picture of Moffat with the video embeded in it.

He also is asked at the end about Ben's honour and responds with a pretty funny remark (at least I thought it was funny)...

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

That's wonderful :-) I like how he doesn't make a big deal of it but it's still apparent he's very happy about it.
His comment about Benedict had me laughing, too. He's got a point there :D

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Belatedly adding that this is so awesome… love that they have long-time honours for this kind of thing.  And Moffat and BC and Ejiofor and Spacey and all!  (and any others we know or enjoy?  haven't read through the whole list yet).  What was Moffat's comment?  Thought it was cute he joked about figuring 'he had one already', and then something about the moon?

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Interesting development that both himself and Benedict will be honoured this year.
I love Sherlock and some of the newer Doctor Who episodes, so I don't think I can say that I hate Stephen, though I have read some very bad things about him, and I'm still not sure whether he is the bad person that some people make him out to be.  Because of that, I know that there are going to be people who don't think he deserves this.
But putting that aside, if we are looking at his contributions alone, he successfully brought Sherlock Holmes to the present while also creating something new.  He has both honoured past writers' characters as well as creating something of his own that is very enjoyable to watch.  And for that in itself, I can't see much that is not undeserving of some praise.  Interesting that he is getting this high honour.  I unfortunately don't know anything about him besides those two shows, so I cannot say for sure whether I think he deserves this particular honour, but I can say that he deserves recognition for something.
I don't mean to be negative and I hope you don't take this the wrong way, it's just that I've heard mixed opinions about him and have not yet come up with my own solid opinion.

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Most big names have mixed opinions of them. I have no idea what is being said about Stephen, but in general I never listen to what I read in media and/or online. It's often rumours, exaggerated or one-sided. And sometimes, we all do or say things that makes us an arse. I know I have, and so have probably you, Stephen and everybody else. Nobody is perfect, but celebs are supposed to be. I disagree with that notion.

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

Yes, I would agre that we can't expect anyone to be perfect.  There are things that are difficult to forgive though if there's no sign of the person having changed. Celebrities are given fewer chances to be forgiven.  But everyone, like you said, has made mistakes and we can't dwell on them too much in many cases.  I don't know about Stephen, though, which is why I can't say for sure whetehr I agree with people who don't like him.  I like his work, which is really all I care about right now.

Re: Steven Moffat to be awarded OBE

There also seem to be quite a lot of people who said that Benedict doesn't deserve this honour, at least not yet. Too young, not enough good works to show, thinks like that.
So..... *shrugs*

Wonderful news about Steven. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?
