Doctor Who Spoilers: Peter Capaldi wanted to bring back Davros. Why?

Many Doctor Who fans were surprised to see the creator of the Daleks, Davros, return to the hit BBC family sci-fi series when it premiered its ninth series last Saturday night. The reason this was such a surprise was mainly because the last time that we had met this particular nemesis of The Doctor, he had seemingly been obliterated… But this is Doctor Who, which means we don’t ever ask ‘how’ certain characters return from the seemingly dead. Instead we need to ask why. T

It was former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies who became the latest person to poke the Doctor Who Movie rumour with a giant stick when he announced earlier this year that he would be happy to pen it… But now, current showrunner Steven Moffat has put the speculation to bed once and for all – Or has he? Of course, we know that there have been Doctor Who films in the past, coming at times in the show’s history where a natural lull between departing Doctors and arriving one

So far, there have not been many details emerging about this year’s highly-anticipated Sherlock Special, other than it is set in Victorian times and will not affect the following series. But now, show co-creator, Steven Moffat, has been giving us a few hints about what we can expect when our favourite crime-fighting duo return to our BBC screens later on this year. The fact that this one-off special is to be set in Victorian times was questionable right from the moment that it was announce

Sherlock Spoilers: Have Irene Adler & Sherlock been seeing each other this whole time? Steven Moffat says….

Ever since Irene Adler made an appearance in the first episode of the second series of Sherlock, fans have been calling her for return with every new series that is announced. Of course, in the original books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ms Adler, or ‘The Woman’ as she is affectionately known, only ever made that one appearance in A Scandal in Belgravia, so the chances were never likely, if the show was to follow the books to the letter. But now, Sherlock showrunner, Steven Mof

Sherlock Spoilers: Steven Moffat reveals why the one-off special is Victorian!

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

Sherlock being cancelled? It’s up to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman…

sherlock correct xmas
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!

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
