Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

Alan Moore (born 18 November 1953[1]) was the writer of a number of backup features for Doctor Who Magazine during the earlier phase of his career. He left the title alongside fellow writer Steve Moore (no relation), after Steve Moore heard from group editor Paul Neary that DWM editor Alan McKenzie was taking one of his strips without his knowledge. (McKenzie has denied ever doing so) Steve Moore has said this was "a wonderful gesture of support that was remarkable for someone at that early a stage in their career". [2]

He profoundly influenced late 1980s Doctor Who era script editor Andrew Cartmel, who asked him to submit story ideas to him.

His daughter, Leah Moore, has co-scripted The Whispering Gallery for IDW Publishing.

Outside Doctor Who, Alan Moore is best recognised for his authorship of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
