I would love nothing more in the world than to move to England and find people with whom it would be alright to talk about Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings and Music and Merlin and Supernatural and Skins and Being Human and Doctor Who and Sherlock and Vampire Diaries and Misfits all day.

‘I hope people feel it’s a bit of a treat; that it’s not churned out. I also think coming in for three weeks and fucking off is the best way to avoid people turning on you. But the chief thrill of doing the series was to start at the beginning, see Holmes and Watson as young men, and maybe if we keep doing them every 18 months then in ten, 20 years’ time they will be middle-aged and more like the Holmes and Watson of tradition. It might not happen, but it’s a thrilling idea that we could grow up with them.’
