“I’ll leave Doctor Who but never Sherlock,” say Moffat

November 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat has made his intentions clear when it comes to his role in the future of the two shows.

Speaking to Assignment X, Moffat said that Doctor Who is great but it means other work is hard to fit in: “Eventually, I’ll stop doing Doctor Who because it stops me doing anything else.

“But Sherlock doesn’t swamp my schedule. I could imagine we’ll come back and do Sherlock fairly often for many years, rather than very often for a few years.”

Perhaps Sherlock is also closer to his heart because he was a big part in getting it made? Either way, while Doctor Who thrives on new blood, Sherlock seems better suited to Moffat’s particular skill set.

Or maybe that’s just me.

Doctor Who will be on our sets on Christmas Day while Sherlock is rumoured to return next year…


It is believed fans will now have to wait until 2015 for the next episode of the detective drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, with Moffat previously saying that discussions were ongoing about filming dates.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
