When we found out that Scottish The Thick Of It star Peter Capaldi was to be the next Doctor Who, we did wonder how much of foul mouthed Malcolm Tucker he would be bringing with him. Fans will know that Capaldi’s Tucker was a loud, aggressive and rude character, with almost every word projected in blue, so it stood to reason that the next Doctor would be a bit on the grumpy side too – but that is all about to change!
We were all left a little confused last year when, after it was highly publicised that series eight of Doctor Who and the following 2014 Christmas Special would be current companion Jenna Coleman’s last, but no exit came. So what happened?
Ever since it was announced that this year, as well as series four of Sherlock, we would be getting a one-off special too, we have all assumed this particular episode would be gift wrapped in time for us for Christmas. But it would seem that we may have all been wrong.

Following the news that Doctor Who has just signed the first female writer in six years for the next series, Steven Moffat has spoken out claiming that the lack of female cast and crew isn’t the show’s fault! Of course we never really thought that it was, after all last series we saw a female director, Rachel Talalay, not only helming two episodes, but the most important two of the series.
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. But don’t worry, because showrunner Steven Moffat has spoken out to clear a few of them up for us!
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
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, ri

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!
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.
Did you see the big twist in Doctor Who coming during the penultimate episode of series 8? Steven Moffat doubts it. Fans tuning in to Dark Water would have, according to show-runner Steven Moffat, been shocked to learn that Missy (Michelle Gomez) was in fact The Master in female form.
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.
