If you woke up this morning with a smile on your face, then I'm about to make you really sad. Whovians and Sherlockians! It's true! Steven Moffat confirmed that 'Doctor Who' movie and 'Sherlock' crossover aren't happening! No, I'm not crying, it was a little thing in my eye...
According to Entertainment Weekly, this is what Moffat has to say about a Doctor Who movie:
“I don’t think there is one,” Moffat says. “No one has ever squared the circle on that. How do we do this? How do we do it without leaching from the television series—which we’re not allowed to do, because Doctor Who is public funded? If it’s going to be a different Doctor, are we going to try and sell two Doctors at the same time? I know there’s been loads of Doctors, but there’s only been one at a time. You don’t have a James Bond on television and one in the cinema. If he’s the same guy, then when are we going to make that?”
No! Please tell me that all these are a joke! Moffat added:
“We’re talking one of the biggest TV shows in the world. It can’t just be a medium-size movie—it’s gotta be a colossal movie,” Moffat says. “I’ve sat with people, saying—and in the end it’s not my decision or my choice, I don’t own Doctor Who—‘Okay, explain to me how it’s going to work.’ And nobody has an answer.”
Well, I guess it's true... There'll be no 'Doctor Who' movie. What about a 'Doctor Who/Sherlock' crossover?
“My instinct—and this is probably from years of doing Doctor Who—is I’m just such a tart,” Moffat says. “If people want it, we should give it to them. But I got persuaded by Mark, Benedict, Sue and Martin who said, ‘Look, it will never be as good as [fans] think it’s going to be.’ And then I say, ‘Yes but we’ll just bang it out and make it as good.’ Yeah, but you can’t give everybody everything they want all the time. But I’m in the camp of giving them everything they want! But I think they’re sane and right, and I’m just a tart.”
Are you kidding me? Today is a horrible day! Well, 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock' fans don't be dissapointed! At least 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock' are back!
Doctor Who' returns 19th September on BBC One and 'Sherlock' is back with a Christmas Special!
