Steven Moffat has to be one of the most famous television writers the world over. Since 2010, he has helmed two of the UK’s most phenomenally successful dramas – namely, Doctor Who and our very own Sherlock. Now that he is stepping down from Who, and Sherlock‘s future is in limbo, he is looking to make a fresh start.
Speaking at the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival this weekend, Moffat gave some hints about his upcoming projects.
“I’ve got a few ideas that I really like. There was one script I actually had greenlit by the BBC before Doctor Who and Sherlock came along… it needs a massive re-write but I still really like it, I might have another go at that.”
Moffat’s second upcoming project will be of more interest to fans – as he will working on it with his Sherlock co-writer Mark Gatiss:
“Obviously Mark and me, we can’t have a conversation without inventing some sort of TV series and we’ve got a notion we might like to do… “
Sherlock fans may know that the BBC detective drama was spawned from a conversation Moffat and Gatiss had over their mutual love of Sherlock Holmes. It looks like they might have struck gold again…
So, any guesses as to what this TV show might be? Will the pair look to reinvent another classic character for the modern world? Or will they look to make something fresh from scratch? Let us know what you would like to see from the pair in the comments.
