Honestly. I 'm surprised this hasn't been a Mini-sode, or a CiN special by now.
What if that's what the Christmas Day Sherlock minisode is?

Seriously, though, I could see a Sherlock/Who crossover as a Children in Need thing, not unlike the Doctor Who/Call the Midwife thing.

Moffat has said the two shows wouldn't work together; Sherlock's ratiocination would be an ill-fit to the Doctor's chaos.

Wouldn't that be sort of the point?

I would think so.

Matt Smith certainly was up for it, at least a cameo.

Moffat's objection, as I remember it, was that the Doctor lives in an impossible world of Daleks and time travel, while Sherlock Holmes lives in a world of ordered evidence and logic. Andy Lane made use of that in his Doctor Who novel All-Consuming Fire; Holmes' deductive abilities were useless when confronted with someone who could travel anywhere in a TARDIS.

I, personally, think it could work. If not a full crossover episode where the Doctor and Sherlock meet, perhaps an episode on each series that showed the Doctor and Sherlock working the same adventure/case, running into the same people, but never quite meeting. I think the challenge of that -- to make two stories that work independently but work beautifully together -- would have appealed greatly to Moffat.

At the very least a minisode would have been fun

A 5 minute charity piece would have been fantastic. Cumberbatch and Smith are the height of Moffat writing and would have played so well off each other.
