I thought it was pretty cool when Roger Federer sported his fan-designed racket in Toronto’s Rogers Cup awhile back. You see that sort of thing in sports pretty often where Fan Appreciation Day’s get lots of creative exercise. I’m a moderate sports fan, and less so the older I get. But my love of geekdom is rampant. That’s why I’m halfway jealous of the awesome feeling one fan got when his opening credits design for the new Doctor Who season was made official.

As Head Writer and showrunner of a popular series, he’d know about that better than anyone. He also knows about sexism, and often feels free to brag about his many sexual conquests. When you’re Head Writer and showrunner for a popular series, you’re bound to get a few of those too. Yeah, Steven Moffat talks a lot. People who talk a lot give useful interviews. Just ask SFX Magazine who recently sat down with our verbal stud and got him to sound off on the numbering of all 13 Doctors. It seems Mr. Moffat believes there was only 1 Doctor all along.
