Steven Moffat has insisted that a 'Sherlock Holmes'/ 'Doctor Who' crossover will never happen

Steven Moffat has ruled out a 'Sherlock Holmes'/ 'Doctor Who' crossover.

Although Steven is in charge of both BBC shows, he insisted that the Doctor and the private detective could never meet because it would change Sherlock's life forever.

He told Collider: "It's all right for 'Doctor Who'. That's fine. But it would change Sherlock's life, if he met the Doctor and knew that time travel was possible. He'd have to factor that into every crime he solved.

"And do we really think that Sherlock Holmes lived through a Dalek invasion? I don't think he did. I think he'd have mentioned it by now. It's not going to happen. That's just the truth of it."

Steven also admitted he wouldn't know what to do with the characters if they ever did meet.

He explained: "I suspect it's a bit like when the Doctors meet.

"It's fantastic, at the beginning, and then you think, 'What the hell am I going to do with three of the bastards?' It's just weird. You don't really need more than one person like that in a show."
