Sherlock has to be "irresistible" to lure Cumberbatch and Freeman back

23 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sherlock has to be "irresistible" to lure back Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, according to Steven Moffat.

The writer revealed that he and series co-creator Mark Gatiss have to pitch to Cumberbatch and Freeman before they'll sign on - and so far, so good.

Moffat was speaking to Digital Spy at last night's House of Fraser BAFTA TV Awards Nominees party.

For more on the future of Sherlock, including when Moffat and Gatiss plan to start work on the next series, check out our video interview above.

The hugely popular drama will next return to BBC One in late 2015, airing a special non-canon episode set in 1895.

The House of Fraser BAFTA Television Awards will take place on Sunday, May 10.

15 greatest ever Doctor Who monsters ranked

23 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who has debuted its latest menacing monster - an armoured antagonist that looks something like a grasshopper crossed with a tank.

In over 50 years, the world's longest-running sci-fi series has introduced us to hundreds of weird and wonderful creatures - but which is the best?

After much debate, here's our definitive ranking of the most memorable and terrifying monsters from 1963 to 2015 (and we're not counting humanoid wrongdoers, so no Master!).

Read on, then join the debate in the comments below...

15. The Haemovores

1980s Doctor Who can sometimes come in for an unfair drubbing - but there was still plenty of imagination, wit and inventive horror on show when the show was at its best.

'The Curse of Fenric' - airing as part of the final 'classic' series in 1989 - is a strong case for the defence, introducing the vampiric Haemovores - a species of evolved humans who lurked eerily »

Doctor Who film: Steven Moffat ‘happy,’ but must not ‘damage the series’

23 April 2015 12:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Steven Moffat has had a bit of a U-turn about the Doctor Who movie rumours, as long as the show isn’t hurt by it…

One of the more recent things to come out of the Sony cyber terrorism attack was some chatter about the long-rumoured Doctor Who film. Although we didn’t pass that story on, because of where it came from, we can talk about Steven Moffat’s response to the reinvigorated rumours. And it  was rather interesting.

In a bit of a U-turn compared to his previous statements, he has said “I'm very happy for there to be a movie, very happy [for there] to be a theatre show – anything you like – but the TV show is incredibly important and must not be hurt. Everybody knows that."

"You can't make a movie that damages the TV series... That's the only thing I'd say about it,” he also mentioned, before »

22 April 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

St Patrick's Day gets a lot of love, what with all the pub going and the Guinness drinking. In comparison, England's St George's Day tends to be a much more low-key affair, but there is a benefit to this: an evening free to catch up on some great TV.

To celebrate dragon slaying and all the other things that make our country great, we've put together a list of the best films and television shows from the UK available to watch on Netflix right now:

Sherlock

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have redefined Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective for the 21st century.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have both been heaped with praise for their roles as the dynamic duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, in stories that bring a modern twist to the classic mysteries.

Lara Pulver honestly doesn't know if she'll ever come back to Sherlock

22 April 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Lara Pulver has said that she does not know if she will ever return to Sherlock.

The actress made an impression as Irene Adler in the second series opener 'A Scandal in Belgravia', and appeared in a brief cameo in a fantasy sequence in third series episode 'The Sign of Three'.

Asked if we will ever see her character again on the show, Pulver told Stylist: "I honestly don't know.

"I was on holiday and a young fan came up and asked for an autograph and said, 'You're filming the Christmas special right now, aren't you?'

"And I was like, 'Erm, it doesn't really look like I am!' I'd prefer to be in one episode of that calibre than flit around in the background."

Pulver has previously said that she would like to return to Sherlock, though the show's co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have said that »

Mark Gatiss clarifies year in which Sherlock one-off special is set

21 April 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Mark Gatiss has confirmed that the upcoming Sherlock special will take place in 1895.

The one-off episode had already been confirmed to be set in the Victorian era, but fans had questioned in which exact year it would take place.

"I can correct something that has been misreported," Gatiss told BBC News. "The series is set in 1895, not 1885."

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will return as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, but it will be a one-off episode set in the past and will not be connected to the usual BBC One series.

When asked whether the ten years between 1885 and 1895 makes a difference, Gatiss replied: "It does, you wait and see, all the difference."

1895 was the year in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle attempted to kill off Holmes in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, only to later resurrect the character after a public outcry.

The year also features in the poem 221B, »

Lara Pulver has no trouble saying no to unrealistic nude scenes

20 April 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Lara Pulver has said that she had no problem turning down nude scenes in Da Vinci's Demons because they were unrealistic.

The actress sparked headlines back in 2012 for a brief scene in Sherlock which suggested that she was naked, even though it was edited so there was no actual on-screen nudity.

"When we first sat round the table reading it, it was one scene in a 90-minute episode," Pulver told Metro.

"Not once did I think, 'Oh god, I've got the naked scene coming up'."

She continued: "Steven Moffat said I'd auditioned naked to get the part, and I was like, 'You can't say that, young people will think that's what they have to do'.

Elementary season 3 episode 20 review: A Stitch In Time

17 April 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Elementary always sides with the lunatics, which is just how we like it. Here's our review of this week's fun, varied episode...

This review contains spoilers.

3.19 A Stitch In Time

This week’s case was a picnic. A hamper full of Elementary entertainment. The episode may not have pushed along any arcs or provided new insights into our leads - no addiction, grieving, or relationship stuff here - but it was chock-full of diverting twists.

A Stitch In Time bound together elements from multiple genres into one fun Katamari of intrigue. A murder investigation became a ghost mystery, then a cyber-thriller, ending finally on the sort of wealthy white-collar criminal that Elementary repeatedly takes as its target.

Anyone who pays attention to the show would have fingered Colin Eisley for the perp from our first glimpse of that original Picasso. Eat the rich, says Elementary, well, the ones only interested in getting richer, »

Doctor Who: 10 Reasons Why The Rings Of Akhaten Sucks

9 April 2015 2:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

It’s been two years since audiences first sat back and watched the Eleventh Doctor and his relatively new companion, Clara, in Series 7’s The Rings of Akhaten. The episode had a lot to accomplish: it had to further the ongoing plotline of the Doctor trying to work out who or what Clara was whilst simultaneously making the viewers like her. Oh, and the story had to include a truly alien environment because the programme was being accused of always being set on Earth.

It’s a tall order and unsurprisingly the episode falls short of its goals, becoming one of the least liked stories since Fear Her. Admittedly, there is much to admire in The Rings of Akhaten and there are vocal fans who are blind to its many faults, but on balance it just isn’t very good. The story received mixed reviews when it was »
