Steven Moffat, writer of Doctor Who and Sherlock

Moffat’s 13 Emmy Nominations!

Steven Moffat, writer of Doctor Who and SherlockSteven Moffat must feel like the cat that got all the cream right now. He’s running Doctor Who, his favourite show and he’s leading it into the 50th Anniversary.

Not only that but he’s also recreated Sherlock Holmes in an entirely new and extremely successful way. Basically, he’s the BBC’s golden boy who turns everything he touches into gold but without the whole literal Midas touch bit.

All his Doctor Who work will shine this year and next, of that we’re sure, but it’s his work on Sherlock that’s getting the praise right now or more specifically, the award nominations. Thirteen of them if we’re going to be exact!

Sherlock received this mighty Baker’s dozen and one amount through the Emmy Nominations and fans are getting very excited indeed. The range includes categories such as:

-Best miniseries or TV movie (for A Scandal in Belgravia)

-Best lead actor in a miniseries or TV movie (for Cumberbatch, naturally)

-Best supporting actor in a miniseries or TV movie (for Martin freeman, even more naturally)

-Best writing for a miniseries, TV movie or dramatic special (Mr Moffat, definitely)

And that’s only four of ‘em! The list covers everything. Whilst these are only nominations and do not guarantee a win and there’s the old saying of “it’s just lovely to be nominated), let’s hope that Sherlock cleans up this year to give Moffat some of the awards that he deserves for all his hard work!


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
