'Sherlock': Steven Moffat doesn't care about critics but wants them to be nice
Moffat made his comments on critics while talking to the BBC about the upcoming Season 3 of "Sherlock." Asked whether he was concerned about a critical response, Moffat did not seem worried at all. "I don't know how much of a difference it makes to 'Sherlock,'" the producer says. "It notoriously doesn't hugely make an impact on big, successful shows what the critics say."
He has a point. "Sherlock" Season 3 could be terrible and the Benedict Cumberbatch/ Martin Freeman show would still be a success.
But this doesn't mean that Moffat wants negative reviews or anything. He noted in the same interview that positive comments from critics can make a big "difference to my day." So Moffat does care!
Following an extended break after the end of Season 2, "Sherlock" Season 3 will finally premiere on Jan. 1 in the U.K. and on Jan. 19 in the U.S.
