Well, it was obvious that none of the people behind the hit BBC detective series, Sherlock, were expecting to win anything at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, as hardly any of them turned up – But we would have thought that the news that they had might have been a bit more exciting for one of them.

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.

Well it certainly was a good night at the Emmy’s for Sherlock last night, the show picked up three of the most prestigious awards.

We all know how much our American friends love the hit BBC detective series based on the original works of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, with a Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss modern-day twist – But not even those people at the heart of the show were expecting such a triumph – In fact the show’s two stars weren’t even there to pick up their awards!

The first episode of Doctor Who series 8 hasn’t even hit our screens yet but already we have been given a hint of what the finale has in store.

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat admits it’s hard to notice when it’s time to “get rid” of a Doctor!

Doctor Who returned to our screens back in 2005, and since then, we’ve had three doctors at the helm. Well, four if you count the upcoming series of the hit drama, with Peter Capaldi in the limelight.

There’s good reason why we’ve only had four doctors in the past nine years, and that’s because they’ve been of such amazing quality, and Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat has recently admitted that it’s hard to notice when change needs to be made.

When Matt Smith was announced as being David Tennant’s replacement as Doctor Who back in 2010 he was the youngest Doctor ever appointed, at the tender age of just 26, which raised many eyebrows.

After all The Doctor, in all his previous forms, had been always been older, in some cases considerably so, which meant that Smith had a real challenge in front of him to win over the hearts of the nation and prove them all wrong.

According to Steven Moffat Sherlock “would be over by now” if they made more episodes!

Ever since we were first introduced to the hit BBC detective series, which is a modern day twist on the original works of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, we, as a planet, have been hooked.

Of course half of our addiction stems from the gruelling 12-24 months between each series, with only three episodes to satisfy us when it does eventually come back.

Doctor Who Series 8: Steven Moffat reveals spoilers for EVERY episode & will ‘more serious’ Doctor alienate kids?

doctor who 2

As we have previously reported, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed that when we get our formal introduction to the 12th Time Lord, Peter Capaldi, next month when series eight of Doctor Who hits our screens, he will be a much different Doctor than we’re used to seeing, but is that entirely a good thing?

Because, whilst Doctor Who fans literally span decades in terms of age, the show is still grouped in the family drama category, with most of the adult fans out there having been fans of the show since they themselves were kids.
