I’m still on hiatus (meh, sort of) but last night I rewatched The Unicorn and the Wasp – the episode of Doctor Who where Ten and Donna meet Agatha Christie – and I’m absolutely positive I’m not the first person to suggest this but I realized I desperately need this to happen while Capaldi’s the Doctor and I felt like I needed to put it out into the universe (aka Tumblr) immediately:
1. Moffat writes an episode where Twelve meets Arthur Conan Doyle.
2. Arthur Conan Doyle is played by Mark Gatiss.
3. Twelve, our cranky Scot, and ACD discuss the TRUE nature of the Holmes/Watson relationship and it’s really funny ahaha gay jokes etc, but what it REALLY is is a reenactment of Moffat and Gatiss’s first conversation about Sherlock when they decided to write their own version.
BONUS POINTS IF THE DOCTOR/DOYLE CONVERSATION HAPPENS ON A TRAIN.
O Moffat, hear my plea.
