#4. Coupling
Steven Moffat’s first TV comedy, Joking Apart, was based on his separation with his first wife. He followed the autobiographical route for his next, better show, Coupling, inspired by his relationship with producer Sue Vertue (whose mother, Beryl, ran the production company that would eventually air the BBC program). Alas, Moffat’s most recent work, Doctor Who, isn’t based on anything autobiographical...or is it? *TARDIS noise*
