Doctor Who and Sherlock: The Six Cross-Overs

Yes, we know there are more than half a dozen links between Who and Holmes but in honour of the Great Detective’s return in The Six Thatchers, we thought we’d limit ourselves to six of the best! So, here are some of our favourite cross-overs (sort of!) between the Time Lord and the detective…

Peter Capaldi played Sherlock Holmes!

Back in the mid-90s Peter was a regular on The All New Alexei Sayle Show and - as we can deduce from the pic above - in one sketch he played Sherlock Holmes opposite Alexei’s Doctor Watson!

The Doctor once pretended to be Sherlock Holmes!

Okay, he never expected the evil Simeon to take him seriously, but in a hilarious scene in The Snowmen the Doctor swans into his enemy’s HQ dressed in a deerstalker, claiming to be Holmes and firing off wild deductions… ‘I see from your collar stud you have an apple tree and a wife with a limp! Am I right?’ When Simeon snaps back that he doesn’t even have a wife, the exasperated Doctor replies, ‘Bit of a tree? Bit of a wife? Some apples? Come on, work with me here!’

Was Holmes based on Madame Vastra?

The Doctor’s old friend, Madame Vastra, has been called ‘the Great Detective’ – a name normally associated with Sherlock Holmes, and she’s been known to do a bit of sleuthing around the streets of Victorian London… In fact in The Snowmen, Simeon told her, ‘You realise Doctor Doyle [Arthur Conan Doyle – the creator of Sherlock Holmes] is almost certainly basing his fantastical tales on your own exploits? With a few choice alterations, of course. I doubt the readers of The Strand magazine would accept that the great detective is, in reality, a woman…’

Tom Baker Street

The mighty Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor) left Doctor Who in 1981 and the following year played Sherlock in The Hound of the Baskervilles. Other actors who’ve played Holmes include the brilliant Nicholas Briggs (the ‘voice of the monsters’), Richard Hurndall (who played the First Doctor in The Five Doctors) and Richard E. Grant (Doctor Simeon). Gemma Chan (Mia, pictured below in The Waters of Mars) starred in the second episode of Sherlock, Caroline John (70s companion Liz Shaw) appeared in Tom Baker’s Hound and Frances Barbour (Kovarian) was fabulous as Madame Schirmer in the movie, Mr Holmes!

Once you have eliminated the impossible…

Sherlock Holmes has been mentioned quite a bit in Doctor Who… The Third Doctor insulted the Brigadier’s powers of deduction, scathingly noting the military man was ‘not exactly a little Sherlock Holmes’ and the character’s creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, was referenced in Ghost Light. He’s even been quoted during The Hungry Earth when Elliot told Rory, ‘Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.’

And, of course…

The award-winning BBC drama, Sherlock, has more Doctor Who links than you can shake a deerstalker at. Its co-creators are Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (I don’t think we need to list their Doctor Who credentials…) and Stephen Thompson (The Curse of the Black Spot and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS) has written two episodes of the show and co-written a third.

Directors Euros Lyn, Toby Haynes, Nick Hurran, Colm McCarthy and Douglas Mackinnon have all helmed episodes of both Doctor Who and Sherlock and if that wasn’t enough, The Six Thatchers was directed by the brilliant Rachel Talalay whose previous credits include Dark Water / Death in Heaven and Heaven Sent / Hell Bent.

Want a final connection between the two shows? Well, both Sherlock and the Doctor are back in 2017… They’ve both been missed and we can’t wait for their return!

BBC iPlayer users can watch the latest episode of Doctor Who and The Six Thatchers premieres on BBC One on New Year’s Day at 8.30pm. Find out more about the new series of Sherlock now!

Ten Things We Know About Bill

She’s in for some incredible adventures…

Okay. Let’s get the obvious one out of the way. She’s hopping aboard the TARDIS with the Doctor which means her life is about to become more fun, more dangerous and more amazing than she could ever have imagined. Buckle up, Bill!

Inside Info

Bill is ‘…funny and geeky and vulnerable. There’s a goofiness to her and a big heart.’ How do we know that? Simple – that’s what Pearl Mackie (who plays Bill) told us!

She meets the Doctor at some sort of university…

So the Doctor works at a university now? What? And she serves chips there? Well, whenever the Doctor spends time at a school or uni or academy, it turns out to be holding some pretty dark secret. Think Daleks, Skovox Blitzer, Krillitanes… So we reckon Bill will be plunged into adventure from the moment she starts hanging with the Time Lord…

She asks questions… A LOT of questions…

Well, wouldn’t you? But we love the fact she asks the questions we’d ask if we were right there by the Doctor’s side. Like why do Daleks screech EXTERMINATE when – as Bill pointed out – saying KILL would save a lot of time!? Showrunner Steven Moffat said, ‘Bill is someone who asks the questions that nobody has asked for 53 years!’

Just what the Doctor ordered…

Bill is gonna shake it up! As Peter Capaldi revealed, the new companion ‘…will bring a universe of exciting new possibilities to the Doctor’s adventures!’

She’s got a temper on her…

Considering Doctor Who can be a bit bonkers at times, Pearl Mackie was struck by how human and ‘relatable to’ Bill will be. She’s said Bill has a temper and can make mistakes and we’re looking forward to seeing how that plays with the Doctor. Can’t help remembering that Sarah Jane Smith could really fly off the handle and she worked out pretty well!

GSOH

Even when evading the Time Lord’s mortal enemies she’s still got time for a joke or two. ‘Is there a Dalek at the back with two suckers and no gun…’ she asked the Doctor, ‘and he’s really hacked off?’

If you think you know the Doctor, Bill will make you think again!

In 2016, Steven Moffat revealed, ‘If I gave you one tone word for this series it’s new. It's brand new. You’re getting to see the Doctor all over again through a very different pair of eyes. In fact, we went to particular pains to make sure that episode one is really episode one. It could be the first episode you ever see. It explains the entire mythos of Doctor Who — in the two minutes it takes — and you can start there!’

She’s now!

Early rumours suggested that Bill would be from Earth’s recent history, but Steven Moffat confirmed that was not the case. Bill’s right now and because of that, she’s the perfect person to be our eyes and ears on the Doctor’s adventures!

The wonders of time and space await!

As Bill says in the trailer, ‘Now we go everywhere! Any space! Any time!’ In short, Bill is about to see the universe anew… and through her, so are we!

Doctor Who returns in 2017!

Behind the Scenes of The Return of Doctor Mysterio

The 2016 Christmas Special was one of the most spectacular to date and we take a peek behind the scenes to look at the making of The Return of Doctor Mysterio…

The Return of Doctor Mysterio was Peter’s third Christmas Special. Or his fourth if we’re counting his brief appearance at the close of The Time of the Doctor!

It wasn’t just the return of Doctor Mysterio, Matt Lucas was also back in the famous duffel coat playing Nardole!

Scenes featuring the streets of New York were shot at the Nu Boyana Film Studios in Sofia, Bulgaria which have specially created sets designed to recreate the Big Apple. But Lucy’s apartment and its rooftop terrace were created in the BBC’s Roath Lock Studios in Wales.

Peter prepares for his next scene… The episode was directed by Ed Bazalgette who previously helmed The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived.

Justin Chatwin gets to grips with another action scene… And Aleksandar Jovanovic (Dr Sim)!

Charity Wakefield (Lucy) described the role as ‘an early Christmas present’!

Finishing touches being applied to this detail from Harmony Shoal’s New York office.

Shooting on the Special began on 5 September and wrapped on 4 October, 2016. Want more? Check out a bunch of great extras for The Return of Doctor Mysterio!
