'Sherlock' and 'Doctor Who' prove Telly is better than Cinema


With a huge ‘tip of the hat’ to the Radio Times…

Television is better than cinema, according to Steven Moffat and both Sherlock and Doctor Who prove his point….in pictures. As the RT pointed out, there may be a bit of a vested interest from the current showrunner of both series, but his point is well taken, regardless.

Television is better than the movies. Yes it is – it’s just better,” Steven Moffat said at a Radio Times-sponsored event at the Cheltenham Literature Festival last week.
