Steven Moffat, the great man that he is, has kept the ultimate fan fantasy alive and kicking for Wholock fans by revealing he fully supported the idea of a Sherlock and Doctor Whocrossover episode by means of a Comic Relief special.
At the premiere of the new series of Doctor Who, Moffat admitted that his plans for a crossover were protested not by him but by his co-writers and the show’s stars.
"Go speak to Cumberbatch, Freeman, Gatiss and Vertue, OK? They're all in the way. I'm not the killjoy, it's that lot," Moffat quipped, confirming, “Look I'm going to come clean on this: I would."
Despite Moffat’s admittance, fans should not get their hopes up for the crossover actually happening.
Agreeing with Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss, Moffat explains during his Q&A with fans that, “Mark's got a point when he says that however good you imagine it, it would be better in your imagination than it would be if the two grand old egotists actually met."
Moffat jokes, “They'd just both go off in opposite corners and sulk.”
Though this is disappointing news, it’s good to know that Moffat did have a plan for the crossover. And who knows, maybe one day this dream will become a reality because let’s face it, Moffat and Gatiss are unpredictable and could change their minds about the crossover any day now.
For now, the fan-made Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover video will suffice:
