Obviously the entire world of Doctor Who is shrouded in mystery, but we couldn’t help but notice that after the series eight finale this autumn, there were quite a few questions left unanswered.

Benedict Cumberbatch on Sherlock’s sexuality, Doctor Who comparisons, awards noms & makes time to snog Reese Witherspoon?

Sherlock is, arguably, the most talked about and speculated over TV series of recent times, with many burning questions on every fan’s lips, and now Benedict Cumberbatch himself has been hinting at the answers to a few of them.

But of course this is Sherlock, a show which possibly has the best guarded secrets and twists in TV history, and as the main player in it, who’s got mystery down to a fine art, it stands to reason that most things that whatever Cumberbatch says regarding his character’s closet dwelling skeletons should be taken with a pinch of suspicious salt.

Mark Gatiss reveals there will be no new Sherlock!

sherlock correct xmas

One of the only bad things about Sherlock is that there is a shelf life on the stories that co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat can use as the original author of the books that the modern day twist BBC series is based on, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is no longer around to make any more.

Of course Moffat and Gatiss are both incredibly talented and credited writers themselves, with more contributions to the world of TV than anyone else at the moment, so surely they could just write some more, right?

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat teases FEMALE Doctor!


As soon as Missy was revealed to be a regenerated version of The Master in the latest series of Doctor Who, we all wondered if this could mean that there would eventually be a female Doctor too, and now we have our answer!

For years, fans have called for a female actor to be cast in the iconic role of Doctor Who, but never more so that when Matt Smith announced his departure from the show last summer.

Doctor Who Spoilers: Steven Moffat worries about change & will Santa be evil in Christmas 2014 special?

With every regeneration of the Doctor in Doctor Who, there is the risk that the change will rock the formula that makes the hit BBC family show what it is today, so of course, the man behind such a decision would be a little apprehensive about making it, to say the least.

And that’s precisely what showrunner, Steven Moffat has admitted to feeling when introducing us to the twelfth incarnation of the iconic Time Lord, Peter Capaldi.

Sherlock & Doctor Who Spoilers: Steven Moffat categorically rules out a cross-over – Expect that soon then!

steven moffat

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.

Of course, for The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) this is no mean feat seeing as he can travel through both space and time, but for Sherlock this seems highly unlikely seeing as he usually opts for a London cab in the real world rather than a flying Tardis in a land of make believe.

Steven Moffat talks ‘superhero’ Sherlock but Benedict Cumberbatch says…

sherlock smile

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.

Some even go as far as to categorise his ‘condition’ further by claiming he has Aspergers, while others try desperately to link whatever condition he may or may not have over to other roles that Benedict Cumberbatch has portrayed.

sherlock benedict cumberbatch martin freeman his last vow

The issue of whether the writers of BBC’s hit detective drama Sherlock should or should not delve further into the private life of the sleuth is one that’s been hotly debated among fans since the show first hit our screens.

And as fans of the show will know, over the years, there has been much speculation about Sherlock’s sexuality, and it’s clear that many viewers are hoping that all the tongue-in-cheek references to, and jokes about, his relationship with sidekick John Watson (Martin Freeman) will one day result in romance between the two friends.

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.
