Gothamist interview with Steven Moffat, Executive Producer of Doctor Who

There was even one line in the first Sherlock, something about “What must it be like to see the world through your eyes” or something like that, that was echoed in one of your early Who scripts.
There are genre similarities in Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes, no question about it. The Doctor is Sherlock in space, and Sherlock Holmes is the Doctor on Baker Street. But, then you look at it a bit more closely, and Sherlock Holmes is cruel, lonely, loveless, and the Doctor is lovely and flopsy and embraces all the things that Sherlock runs away from.

Great great interview. Too much to pull just one quote. Go read it. Now. Thx. Bye.
