Doctor Who: Steven Moffat says Capaldi’s ‘Scottishness’ will be his main thing!


Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat has revealed that the fact that new Time Lord, Peter Capaldi, is Scottish will help to enhance his character.

Now considering that when 10th Doctor David Tennant, who played the lead role in the hit BBC family sci-fi series from 2005 till 2010, landed the same role he was told in no uncertain terms that he was to leave his Scottish accent at the door, this news is a tad surprising.

Sherlock - Series 2

Now we all know that Sherlock Holmes middle name is nepotism, well in the modern-day twist version anyway, so the news that yet another production family member has had an influence on the show will come as no surprise at all – But it does raise some questions.

Well, after promising us faithfully that production for the fourth series of Sherlock would start ‘as soon as possible’ and even hinting this could see a return of our favourite crime-fighting duo as soon as this Christmas, co-creator Steven Moffat has now had a change of heart it would seem.

sherlock moriarty

The plot thickens!

Fans of Sherlock were left gobsmacked when, at the end of the series 3 finale, Sherlock’s arch nemesis Moriarty (Andrew Scott) suddenly appeared in a video clip which was apparently hacked into the world’s media, asking Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) “did you miss me?”

The reason this came as such a huge shock for viewers was because that at the end of series 2, just before Sherlock faked his own death, Moriarty could be seen shooting himself in the face, in a scene which left hardly any room for suspicion as to what the outcome of that action was.
