Viewers have speculated about it in online forums and fan fiction but we now have confirmation that the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes have met. Not only that, but the Time Lord seemingly palms off his old junk on the great detective.
The Doctor’s sheet music from the Tennant era special mini-episode Music of the Spheres, filmed for the 2008 Doctor Who Prom, has found a new home in the 221B Baker Street set of BBC1’s Sherlock. The hit reinvention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic stories, which has just finished its third series, features a fairly traditional representation of the sleuth’s Baker Street flat, full of clutter collected in a career solving crimes (a 360 degree view of which you can see here).
In comments which one imagines he won’t want to repeat to Scotland Yard, Production Designer Arwel Wyn Jones confesses he ‘may have stolen’ the item from the Doctor Who shelves at BBC Cardiff…
Any ideas as to other items belonging to the Doctor that Sherlock might fancy for his flat?
