Text of the Caitlin Moran article from tomorrow’s Times (it’s gone up rather early).
Do buy a copy of the Times as Benedict is on the front cover of the magazine and it’s an incredibly long article and it will probably have different photos inside!
An absolute must buy for any Sherlock fan!
Sherlock’s instant eminence, the first time it broadcast, seems obvious: it does only take 90 minutes for everything to change when you’re moving this fast. This kind of velocity is inarguable.
Three minutes in, Mark Gatiss leans over to Steven Moffat and whispers something. Moffat starts to laugh – and then looks quite sombre.
Afterwards, in the bar, I ask Moffat what Gatiss said. “That it’s never going to get any better than this,” he replies. “I started to laugh, because I thought it was a joke – and then I realised he was right. It probably won’t get any better than this.”
“Until we write the next series, obviously.” He looks down into his wine. “That’s going to be amazing.”

It’s interesting that – given this level of obsession with Holmes – Gatiss and Moffat found one aspect of their Holmes wholly mysterious until very late in the process.
“We didn’t know if he was gay or not until the [first] series had actually finished, did we?” Gatiss muses. “We kind of had to… work it out. It wasn’t obvious.” You don’t say.

Just a couple of pictures from the Sherlock BFI last night and the Q&A afterwards. I was right up in the back row so the quality isn’t that great but I thought I’d share.
This is why we refer to this man with ‘Godtiss’.
This is why Mark is head writer.
I remember back when we all used to joke Mark was our only hope for more homoerotic subtext since Moffat flat out refused, and now he’s promising to live up to our hopes and dreams, omg. :))
MARK GATISS AND CAITLIN MORAN INTERACTING MAKES ME WANT TO DIE IN A GOOD WAYYYYYY
