Doctor Who

There’s plenty more Doctor Who coming our way — at least five more years of it, as revealed by showrunner Steven Moffat yesterday. Which means the Doctor has plenty of wild adventures ahead of him still. But the one thing he won’t be doing is leading a feature film. Read Moffat’s explanation of why there won’t be a Doctor Who movie after the jump.  Read More »

Doctor Who five years

The Time Lord known as Doctor Who has can manipulate a few elements of the universe in order to preserve himself — hell, the guy can regenerate an entirely new body. But he hasn’t always been able to fend off the capricious and sometimes fickle interest of the viewing public. The Doctor was off the air for many years, but since the show’s most recent resurgence things are going strong. Doctor Who is going so well, in fact, that the BBC sees at least another five years’ future in the series. Read More »

Sherlock

Doctor Who and Sherlock have quite a few things in common. Both of them are internationally popular British dramas with a huge geek fanbase. Both of them center around special but awkward heroes with more “normal” companions in tow. And both of them are run by Steven Moffat. So naturally, fans of both have long wondered if there might be any chance of the two properties crossing paths.

Well, there’s good news and bad news on that front. In an interview, Moffat reveals he’s all for a Doctor Who Sherlock crossover. It’s everyone else — Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and the producers — that’s against it. Read Moffat’s Doctor Who Sherlock crossover comments after the jump.  Read More »

Maisie Williams Doctor Who

We don’t know if Maisie Williams will end up doing the film adaptation of The Last of Us, but she has shot a role that will let fans of her Game of Thrones character see the actress in a new light. Williams is now on set for Doctor Who, shooting a guest role that will be part of the show’s next season, which debuts this fall. We don’t have a lot of info on the Maisie Williams Doctor Who appearance, but what we do have is below.

Sherlock, BBC

Sherlock is going back to its roots. Though the popular BBC drama moves Arthur Conan Doyle‘s classic mysteries to the modern day, the upcoming Sherlock Christmas special will take place in Victorian London, as confirmed by showrunner Steven Moffat. Find out how and why after the jump.  Read More »

Sherlock special

New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.

We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »

Sherlock Christmas special

UPDATE: Martin Freeman was right. Deadline is reporting Sherlock will be back in 2015, starting with a special that’ll film early in January. Later, they’ll get to work on season four for a probable 2016 premiere. Head there for more details. Original article follows.

Sherlock season three came and went all too fast. Each of the show’s tightly-scripted seasons is so easy to devour in a day or two. The 90-minute episodes merit multiple views, but the four and a half hours of story we saw in January of this year only made us want a fourth season even more.

Trouble is, scheduling a new season is difficult. It is essentially like shooting three films, and stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are wildly busy. (Due in no small part to the popularity of this very show.) So while a fourth season could happen, we don’t know when cameras could roll.

We’ve heard, however, that a one-off special was possible, to bridge the gap between seasons. Now Martin Freeman says a Sherlock Christmas special is looking likely… but not until 2015.  Read More »

Sherlock season 3

You probably already know the good news: we’re getting a fourth season of Sherlock. And if you’ve finished the third season, that was all but settled in the final moments. The bad news, however, is the wait. Series co-creator Steven Moffat splits his time between Sherlock and another little show people might have heard of, Doctor Who. He has a lot of his plate. In a recent interview he said he won’t sacrifice any quality and that means we probably won’t see Sherlock return for a few years. Read More »
