At long last, Sherlock will once again return to all our TV screens in just a few days time, albeit looking a bit different than we’re used to. Now, cast and crew take us inside The Abominable Bride with a new featurette detailing how Benedict Cumberbatch’s modern Sherlock transported itself back to Victorian times.

Depending when you boarded the TARDIS, Doctor Who fans are always accustomed to the comings and goings of creative talent, most recently losing a fan-favorite companion, while Steven Moffat himself has waffled on remaining. Now, get ready to crank up the Peter Capaldi rumors, as the actor himself questions his future with the franchise.
And lo, another Doctor Who seeason has come to a close (at least until Christmas), and while Jenna Coleman’s Clara put in a sizable return from her apparent death back in “Face the Raven,” Clara’s actual exit still leaves a void for Peter Capaldi’s next TARDIS companion. Capaldi himself wants only for the next companion to be female, however, saying “I’m frightened that they’ll give [a male companion] all the action.”
The BBC’s Sherlock has plenty of Doctor Who in its blood between creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, but did you know Matt Smith even auditioned for the role of Watson? Or that Amanda Abbington (Mary) is Martin Freeman’s real-life partner? Flip your collar and swish that coat, as the 34th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ hits the streets of London to detect some elementary facts from Sherlock.
Doctor Who has plenty of excitement in the nearby future, between this weekend’s upcoming Season 9 finale, and the potential for Peter Jackson to direct an episode, leaving the upcoming Christmas special in between. And before we get “Hell Bent,” Check out the first Baymax-looking poster for The Doctor and River Song’s Christmas reunion, along with the official title!
Whether or not Peter Jackson wound up burnt out in directing The Hobbit trilogy, few would argue the Lord of the Rings aficionado has had ample time to prepare a long-rumored Doctor Who collaboration. That day may finally have arrived, as Jackson just stopped short of confirming his work on Season 10, with Peter Capaldi himself.
Doctor Who fans are certainly used to a bit of turnover amongst the cast, the latest of which will see Jenna Coleman’s Clara exiting the series before Season 9’s end. That departure will presumably arrive in the next few weeks (if not immediately sooner) while Steven Moffat claims the search for Peter Capaldi’s next companion hasn’t made much progress.
Yesterday, we caught wind that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s upcoming Sherlock special would finally deliver a full trailer, and deliver it has. Sherlock and Watson at last return to the Victorian era, but when can we expect them to return to TV screens? The mystery deepens …
Now that Doctor Who companion Jenna Coleman has confirmed her exit after the current ninth season, talk naturally turns to the future of the series, and franchise at large. That talk now turns to spinoff, as The BBC has confirmed a new young adult Doctor Who series titled Class to arrive in 2016.
Doctor Who had a timeline’s worth of work to do last year in introducing Peter Capaldi as Matt Smith’s replacement, regrettably costing Whovian fans a Comic-Con appearance. Now, Peter Capaldi makes his Doctor Who debut at Comic-Con 2015 to preview the ninth season of the series, teasing plenty of twists and turns for Missy, Clara, The Doctor, and all those in Season 9's path.
