[TV] Steven Moffat Doesn't See The Point Of A Sherlock Movie

"Why would that be better?"
In an interview with Digital Spy, Steven Moffat said that he would only make a Sherlock movie if there was a "pressing narrative reason".
He said: "It would just be, 'How does it make it better to go to the cinema?' - that would be the question. Everyone knows that cinema and television - in terms of production quality, in terms of everything really - are getting closer together, so how would we make it better if we put it on the big-screen? Yes, you could take it to movies and then you'd get one every three years as opposed to three every two years - why is that better?"
He also mentioned the box office success of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special.
He added: "The Doctor Who special we did, 'The Day of the Doctor', we put in the cinemas and on that weekend it came number two at the American box office. That's a TV program - number two at the American box office for the weekend it came out, with limited distribution. That's television handing cinema its own arse!"
The season three finale of Sherlock, "His Last Vow", airs on BBC One this Sunday at 8:30 PM.
