When it was announced that this year’s one-off Sherlock Special would be set in the Victorian era, we were all more than a little bemused. Don’t get us wrong, we can thoroughly appreciate the quirkiness of taking the modern-day twist show back to its original roots, but did wonder just how on earth it would fit in to the hit BBC detective series we have all come to know and love. Well, the clue was probably in the title one-off, meaning that it didn’t necessarily have to fit in

It is the news that all Sherlock fans have been waiting for – Series 4 has been given a filming date! But don’t get too excited because, unlike many early reports had suggested, the new series won’t be being filmed this year, but spring 2016! Now we all know that the cast and crew have been filming for the one-off Sherlock Special, expected to be aired this Christmas, but we had all kind of hoped that filming for the fourth series would happen later this year with perhaps a vie

Well, whilst most of the series ahead remains cloaked in mystery, showrunner Steven Moffat has let one little golden nuggets of information slip, namely that Osgood will be back!

Ever since Sherlock first hit our BBC screens five years ago, the detective series, and its two main stars, have become a global phenomenon. But with such popularity comes fame which in turn leads to demand, as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who play the crime fighting duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, have discovered. The pair now have diaries that are probably blocked out until 2080 at least, with more blockbuster films under their belts than they can shake a stick at. And i

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat’s warning to movie producers & Matt Smith is Prince Philip!

Doctor-Who
Speculation about turning the hit BBC family sci-fi series, Doctor Who, in to a new movie has been around since Russell T Davies brought the show back to life ten years ago. In fact it was only earlier this year that Davies himself said he would be interested in writing for such a project, but now it would seem that Hollywood has beaten him to it! According to the Sun newspaper, a US studio is contemplating turning the hit show, which currently stars Pater Capaldi as The Doctor, into a blockbust

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat rules out a movie! Here’s why…

There have been several Doctor Who films made over the years, and as fans of the show may know, Russell T Davies has revealed he would like to pen one. However, fans will also know that historically, there has only ever been a film made in order to bridge a gap between Doctors, but with Peter Capaldi only in his second year in the job, it seemed a bizarre proposal by Davies, who resurrected the show ten years ago, to start planning a movie now! And it would seem that current showrunner, Steve

Sherlock Spoilers: Moffat reveals series 4 hasn’t even been WRITTEN yet, but will put fans “through the mill”

Ahead of the one-off Sherlock Special which is scheduled to air later this year, we simply cannot contain our excitement about the fourth series of the hit BBC detective show that will follow it. And to help get us even more in the mood, one of the show’s co-creators, Steven Moffat, has been giving us a few teasers about what we can expect. In possibly one of his most detailed interviews regarding the new series, the writer told Entertainment Weekly that he and fellow co-creator Mark

Sherlock / Doctor Who crossover? Steven Moffat may consider it…. & Doctor Who renewed for 5 years!

Ever since current Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat branched out to co-creating the hit BBC detective series, Sherlock, there have been talks of the super-power shows crossing paths. Of course, the very nature of each show has presented quite a few obstacles, the main one being that whilst one show relies on delving in to the realms of fantasy, the other’s MO is to prove reality beyond all reasonable doubt. By our reckoning this means that it could only ever be Sherlock (Benedict Cumbe

Is Sherlock gay? Steven Moffat confirms Sherlock Holmes sexuality…..

It has been one of the biggest questions of all time – Is Sherlock Holmes gay or straight? – And now it has finally been answered! Throughout the century that people have been reading the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series of novels, there has been no real suggestion of any sort of sexual partner in the iconic London detective’s life. This was made even more apparent when Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis reinvented the show with a modern day twist, with som

Doctor Who Spoilers: Series 9 will see a new Doctor, promises Steven Moffat!

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!

Sherlock Spoilers: Steven Moffat casts doubt on Christmas special

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.
