Assuming that there is actually any sort of parallel here, that's a damn good argument for Moffat concentrating on Doctor Who.

I think SJA has been excellent so far...

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

RTD delegated most of the work for those shows to other people which is arguably why the first two series of Torchwood are rubbish compared to Children of Earth.

Steven Moffat doesn't seem like the kind of person who would be comfortable delegating, I think it's more likely he'd want to be at the centre of everything.

Sherlock was excellant, a bit smarmy clever, but excellant nonetheless.

So do I. I would even include RTD's "Invasion of the Bane".

Well that was rather good wasn't it ?
I was amazed at how well the story updated and yet still felt just like the original.
Cumberbatch (?) was superb in the part of Holmes and him out the office made an excellent Watson - very good of the government to have a war in Afghanistan to fit in around filming.

Can the Moff spare time to do a full series? yeah why not as long as he keeps the quality up I see no reason why not - at least with Sherlock the basic story is already there for him, he only needs to adapt it - its not like hes got to come up with a totally new story.

Last nights "The Blind Banker" was brilliant, a lot better than last weeks.

Loved the last episode with a stack of parallels to the Conan Doyle stories.......

Even the double bluff for us Holmes fans to be waiting for Holmes and Moriaty to end up in the water.... :Dalek:

Somewhat to my surprise I really enjoyed "Sherlock". My only gripe is that they've brought out the big guns too fast - we could really have done with establishing Holmes with lots of ingenious crime solving that didn't involve his arch enemy first, IMHO, I wonder where they will go from here? Also, if that really is Moriarty they met by the pool (and don't forget in the original, Moriarty always had underlings to stand in for him, it was very hard to get close to him as Holmes did at Reichenbach), they appear to have "done a Master" on him and surgically extracted quite a bit of his menace. (He doesn't look old enough to be the "Napoleon of Crime" for one thing!) Maybe that's just a front man and the real Moriarty will turn out to be Derek Jacobi - we can but hope!

But other than that, and those are probably minor points, I thought it was very good, and it had some LOL moments too. Plus those of us who are fans of the original got plenty of opportunity to say things like "I bet the tube stops outside his window...told you so!" until strangled by our other halves.

Got this on Blu-ray for my Birthday and have slowly been watching it. Excellent stuff. The Piolt is interesting, it's basiclly the first episode but 55 mins long, they reshot the whole thing before going out. On watching the piolt i;d say that the series does work a lot better as 90 min TV movies

Me too. That wasn't where RTD fell down (but then he hardly wrote any of it...)

Oh hold on, tony left a while ago.

Mr Moffat says in the Autumn.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2011/ ... eve-moffat

"This year the episodes [of Doctor Who] are to be split into two separate chunks, with seven in the spring, and six in the autumn, when Sherlock will also be returning to our TVs."

He remains tight-lipped about what lies in store. "You can have three words to work from," he laughs. "Adler, Hound, Reichenbach. Those are your clues." (Well, obviously those would imply Irene, Baskerville and Moriarty....again.)

Have recorded this one, two out of three episodes last year were amazing!



I agree the middle one was very weak last year, I relly hope that this episode is just a blip in quality.
