You know how Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat has been teasing fans with a crossover for basically forever?
Well, Doctor Who writer and Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss, who plays Mycroft Holmes, is officially having none of it.
I'm not being horrible but I just don't see the point. First of all, they are entirely different shows. But I think there'd be so much excitement among certain members of the fan community followed by massive disappointment that it wasn't the version they had in their heads.
Of course, Moffat has said that Gatiss has been (maybe, kind of, smartly) against a crossover for a while now. BUT saying one will happen "over my dead body" is taking it to the next level.
That's a legit Mycroft Holmes move right there.
But, ugh, whatever — crossover supporters will just have to watch this epic "Wholock" masterpiece with the Eleventh Doctor over and over again until we've tricked our hearts and minds into believing that it's real.
