Sherlock Holmes Is Not Gay, Not Straight, Says Steven Moffat

20 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There's been plenty of speculation about Sherlock Holmes's sexual orientation among Sherlock viewers and fanfiction writers, and recently Benedict Cumberbatch sparked a new round of discussion with a comment he made on Chris Hardwick's "Nerdist" podcast. "They've got different dress senses, different taste in the sex of their partners," Cumberbatch said when comparing the Doctor (from Doctor Who) and Sherlock. But Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat, who's been working on season four (finally!) of his show, had some thoughts on the matter. "It’s a funny thing when a character for over 100 years has been saying, ‘I don’t do that at all,'" Moffat told EW. "[Sherlock]’s not interested in [sex]. He’s willfully staying away from that to keep his brain pure — a Victorian belief, that. But everyone wants to believe he’s gay. He’s not gay.

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — “Top Gear” executive producer Andy Wilman has denied reports that he is quitting the BBC show, which has an estimated audience of more than 350 million in 214 territories worldwide.

His denial follows the leaking of an email he sent Monday to the show’s staff with the subject-line “Au revoir,” which suggested he was walking away from the show. The email was sent following the BBC’s decision last week not to renew the contract of the show’s lead presenter, Jeremy Clarkson, who has been friends with Wilman since they attended the same private school.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Wilman said that he was not leaving the show. “The email I wrote yesterday was not a resignation statement,” he said. “It was a private note of thanks to 113 people who have worked on the show over the years.”

He added: “If I were to resign, I wouldn’t do it publicly, »
