    Amazingly well done, and after watching this it's something that I really wish could happen

    I thought it was real for awhile. Then I noticed that it looked just a little too....CGI and I was like "Did Peter Jackson film this? It looks like a video game."

    But for what it is, it's well done. Well put together.

    EMH posted this in the Who humour thread. It isn't perfect but it's still quite nicely done all things considered.

    The only part that was pretty fake was when the doctor was talking and looking to his right and Sherlock was on his left. Otherwise good body substitution (Clara/Sherlock) when he enters the Tardis.

    Yes it was a bit odd, made the Doctor look like he was blind.

    There's also the lack of movement on the Doctor's part. Smith consciously keeps his character moving with a Chaplin or Buster-esque quality so seeing him standing still for so long is distracting. I know why this was done for the purposes of this work, but it unfortunately stands out in what is otherwise a fantastic bit of fun.

    The video may have a few problems, but I think its done very well considering what they had to work with. That would be an awesome crossover.

    OH, how I wish this scene would actually happen. Those two shows together would be all kinds of awesome.

    Honestly. I 'm surprised this hasn't been a Mini-sode, or a CiN special by now.

    There was a CNN (Or was it FOX?) Special. Meghan Kelley declared she had proof that Khan and Santa Claus are definitely White (True Story..,Almost :alienblush: )

    Oh wait, you said CiN, sorry, I read that as a News channel :alienblush:

    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.
