Ever since Doctor Who head honcho Steven Moffat brought us the epic modern day twist on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock, there has been excited whisperings of the possibility between a show cross-over.

Ever since Sherlock first hit our screens three series ago the biggest debate among fans across the world, apart from his sexuality, was whether or not he had a form or autism due to his highly intelligent, and slightly erratic thought process.

We have had firmly sealed lips from the powers that be over at Sherlock HQ, ever since the last series ended, but now it seems you can’t shut any of them up!

Of course the sudden burst of enthusiastic sharing from the likes of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss is more than likely a direct result of the show’s massive triple win at last weekend’s Emmy Awards, during which both of the shows main stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, picked up the top prizes for Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries for their portrayals of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively.
