‘Doctor Who’ season 10: Steven Moffat to receive honorary doctorate

Doctor Who -Before long, “Doctor Who” showrunner Steven Moffat could actually be referred to as “Dr. Steven Moffat,” provided of course that this is what he wants. It has been announced that on July 5, the prolific producer (who also is the co-creator of “Sherlock”) will be heading home to Paisley to take part in the University of the West of Scotland graduation ceremony. There, he will receive an honorary doctorate for all of the work that he has contributed to society.

In a statement per the Gazette, Moffat had the following to say about the offer:

“It’s always a joy to go home – but to go back to Paisley to receive a doctorate feels like I finally made it … I feel very honoured and more importantly very happy.”

Meanwhile, the university’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor Craig Mahoney added the following:

“Steven is a great role model for anyone, not just our students, and demonstrates that your path in life will be determined by your own passion for the things you believe in.”

This is a tremendously cool honor for Moffat, and a truly deserved one, especially when you consider that he may remain one of the most under-appreciated producers working in show business. Whenever there is an episode of “Doctor Who” that doesn’t quite work, he is one of the first people that fans go to in order to complain. However, he does not necessarily receive the amount of praise that he should when things turn out to be successful.
