'Permanently stressed' Steven Moffat's stern advice for the BBC when he quit Doctor Who
BBC series Doctor Who and Sherlock.The science fiction pro has opened up about the “stressful” time he experienced while working on the popular shows, even sharing the advice he gave to the BBC when he exited Doctor Who. Steven, 60, was showrunner of Doctor Who between 2009 and 2017, creating the series which featured Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.He took over from legendary screenwriter and showrunner Russell T Davies, who revived the historic British sci-fi show in 2004.While helming the hugely popular time-travelling show, he also teamed up with writer and actor Mark Gatiss to create the BBC’s Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. When he was interviewed, Steven revealed he had recently revisited his emails from 2010, which was the year he launched Sherlock and became Doctor Who’s showrunner. He admitted that the intense workload of managing both at the same time feels like a distant memory now, but regrets the way he handled the stress. “All I ever did was work and get grumpy,” he recalled. “I was permanently stressed, upset, faintly cross. “Looking back on it now, I’m like, ‘You were having the year of your life!  “‘You’re never going to have another one like that!’” He also revealed some advice he had shared with the BBC when he finally stepped down from Doctor Who. “When I left, I said to the BBC that the show needs so much more money,” he explained.“There’s a tendency to think of it as The Little Engine That Could, this sweet little thing that does remarkably well. “It’s one of the biggest shows in the world – it should swagger like one,” he told Radio Times. With this in mind, Steven is apparently thrilled that the channel is now throwing its full weight behind the

Movie Review: Morbius — Dial Down Your Expectations
The filmmakers and corporations behind Sony’s Marvel Comics adaptation Morbius (★☆☆☆☆) have had ample time to consider what they’re aiming for with this big-budget film intro for living vampire, and vintage Spider-Man nemesis, Dr. Michael Morbius.Namely they should have figured out by now whether their version of the character — portrayed in astonishingly muted fashion by Oscar-winner and accent devourer Jared Leto — exists in any known Spider-Man film universe, or maybe one that’s merely Spidey-adjacent, à la Venom.After half a decade and at least seven release date delays, moviegoers and Marvel fans (not mutually exclusive) also have had ample time to try to make sense of every hint in the marketing, and every detail of speculation.But the murky, mundane origin story that director Daniel Espinosa and credited writing team Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have come up with treats making sense more as a perk than a prerequisite, so dial down expectations accordingly.Ultimately, Morbius is a setup — a long-winded prologue to some prospective later franchise entry, teased in the two underwhelming mid-credits sequences that will prolong this experience for many who would otherwise be ready to bolt by then. Strangely enough, the movie checks out first, practically stopping on a dime following a listless showdown between super-vampire-powered Morbius and friend-turned-foe Milo, played by past and perennial Dr.
