Doctor Who Steven Moffat Peter Capaldi

'Doctor Who' fans everywhere can sleep easy in the knowledge that the sci-fi series could go on 'indefinitely', according to former star Peter Davison - and we have to say, we're rather inclined to agree, especially since it has seen a complete overhaul once already.

The show's producer Steven Moffat revealed earlier this year that the series would definitely continue for five more years, but it seems other people are much more confident than that. After BBC drama boss Ben Stephenson suggested it could go on another 50 years, former Doctor Peter Davison took it one step further insisting to BANG Showbiz that he thinks 'it will go on fairly indefinitely' as long as the fans stay devoted and the producers stay committed. We think he's got a point and have come up with seven top reasons why the Timelord will continue to travel through time.

Steven Moffat, the head writer on Doctor Who, has explained there are no plans for a Doctor Who movie.

Martin Freeman: Regular 'Sherlock' Episodes Would Lose The Appeal


Martin Freeman Benedict Cumberbatch Mark Gatiss Steven Moffat

Fans may disagree, but Martin Freeman thinks that 'Sherlock' hitting screens in brief spells is a good thing when it comes to its appeal, as it's not easy to get bored of a show that only comes around for a few weeks a year.

'Sherlock', starring Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch as a modern Sherlock Holmes, is one of the BBC's most loved shows, but even though it started back in 2010, there have only been nine episodes across three series so far, plus the 2013 Christmas mini-episode. The next instalment will arrive at Christmas, despite the fact that's it's already been a whole year since the last one.

Doctor Who anticipation has never been stronger than in recent times as fans prepared themselves for season eight of this science-fiction institution and the introduction of the twelfth doctor played by 56-year-old Scot, Peter Capaldi.

Don't Rule Out A 'Sherlock' Movie Just Yet, Says Steven Moffat


Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Steven Moffat Mark Gatiss

In general, TV shows that are turned into movies never come close to emulating the same kind of success or that same edge that made the orignal creation such a joy to behold in the first place. When Sherlock, the BBC's hit modern update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective series, is concerned however, a movie version of the feature-length programme seems to make a lot of sense.

Sherlock
Stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have made a name for themselves in Hollywood since Sherlock's debut

With the show's stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman currently mentioned among the highest echelons of Hollywood actors, it seems less and less likely that a Sherlock film will ever come to fruition, however during a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, series writer and creator Steven Moffat revealed that a Sherlock movie might not be completely out of the question yet. With a fourth and potentially a fifth season already under construction, Moffat and the rest of the Sherlock team still have plenty of ideas to work with, ideas that may make their way on to the big screen.

Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Steven Moffat

Sherlock has been a barnstorming success, and it’s not often you get to hand that phrase out. It might not seem like a surprise to us schmucks, but the show’s writer and producer, Steven Moffat, can’t believe the BBC drama is bringing in the kind of numbers it is.

Moffat says in a statement: "It isn't supposed to be like this. Sherlock began life as a surprise hit, and now in its third series, it's rating higher than ever."

Sherlock wrapped up in style as the final episode of the BBC detective drama aired last night and sent shockwaves of excitement throughout fans and critics.

Sherlock returned earlier this month for its third season and did so it fantastic form, with the first two episodes gaining major plaudits from fans and critics alike. With the season finale due to air on Sunday, 12 January, there is already a lot to live up to, but the unmasking of a new villain should do the trick for fans of the show with even the highest of standards.

Lars Mikkelsen briefly appeared as the villainous Charles Magnussen at the end of season three opener 'The Empty Hearse' and on Sunday's episode we will get to see him carry out his evil deeds in full, a prospect that Mikkelsen himself says will be worth the wait. Describing Sherlock's (Benedict Cumberbatch) newest foe as a "supreme" villain who "lives off preying on other people," Magnussen promises a wholly different kind of villain to Andrew Scott's Jim Moriarty.

Following a baffling turn of events for the Doctor in the 50th anniversary episode of BBC's 'Doctor Who' entitled 'The Day Of The Doctor', producer Steven Moffat intends to drop another bombshell on Whovians this Christmas.

Matt Smith Day of the DoctorMatt Smith in 'The Day of the Doctor'

The long-running sci-fi show's Christmas Special has now been given a title: 'The Time of the Doctor'. Rather ambiguous as usual, but with recent developments being revealed by producers, its set our minds racing. 'The Day of the Doctor' saw the Matt Smith incarnation of the Doctor meet his predecessor David Tennant as well as John Hurt who became the 'forgotten' Doctor that neither incarnation ever spoke about. Together, however, they resolved the 21st Century Doctor's darkest regret and saved his planet Gallifrey from total destruction.

Actor Peter Capaldi will become the first identifiably Scottish Timelord when he takes over from current Doc Matt Smith during the eagerly awaited Christmas regeneration episode of Doctor Who.

Director Peter Jackson expressed an interest in directing an episode of the BBC's long-running time travel drama, Doctor Who, to Entertainment Weekly. The Hobbit director said he'd direct an entire episode with just a golden dalek for pay even though he's known to already have two daleks. The Kiwi filmmaker said "They don't even have to pay me, but I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-coloured Daleks. They must have a spare one."

However, there has now been a development to Jackson's aspirations: it seems that DW writer Steven Moffat has given a one-off episode the nod. During a recent Q & A event in Edinburgh, the showrunner addressed Jackson's request. "He's serious about it. We talked at The Hobbit premiere - he just wants a Dalek. So we'll give him a Dalek and he'll direct an episode. I think he'd like to us to go to New Zealand. I think it's entirely possible," he said via Blogtor Who.
