Doctor Who - Steven Moffat Would Quit Doctor Who Before Sherlock

Here is something that I have seen on a lot of Doctor Who websites and it is quite interesting but makes a lot of sense.  Steven Moffat was asked which show he would give up doing first Doctor Who or Sherlock and the answer was one I guessed he would make and that would be Doctor Who and here is Steven Moffat's explanation.

“Eventually, I’ll stop doing Doctor Who because it stops me doing anything else, but Sherlock doesn’t swamp my schedule. I could imagine we’ll come back and do Sherlock fairly often for many years, rather than very often for a few years."
Steven Moffat is currently working on Series 8 of Doctor Who the first series of the Peter Capaldi era and with Mark Gatiss is working on the 4th series of Sherlock.

  1. It sounds like he has a balanced view of his workload. Doctor Who is such a massive hit with thousands of moving parts that it's probably hard to keep up on it.

    1. He probably has other projects he wants to do and it makes sense to quit Doctor Who while Sherlock is made every so many years.
