  • Edward Delingford

    Both great directors. I’ve consistently enjoyed Sherlock, even this year’s Christmas Special, but even if you have not, it’s hard to argue that direction hasn’t always been a strong point. Hopefully both will also return to Who this year too. The quality of direction in Who was also outstanding last year with Heaven Sent superlative in many respects, including Rachel Talalay’s fine direction. It looks as though Steven Moffat will be having a stellar 2017 with what is shaping up to be a wonderful farewell series for Who and another spiffingly great series for Sherlock!

    Series four is shaping up to be rather good. Now we only have to wait 999 years until it airs.
