Adler’s everywhere today, as Sherlock episode “A Scandal in Belgravia” was awarded with three BAFTA TV Craft awards at last night’s ceremony. Charlie Phillips accepted for Editing: Fiction, Steven Moffat for Writing and John Mooney, Jeremy Child, Doug Sinclair and Howard Bargroff for Sound: Fiction.
In what was probably the shortest speech a writer has ever given, Moffat remarked that he was “genuinely, utterly thrilled,” adding in a later interview, “Sherlock’s gone so incredibly well it’s almost ridiculous.” He described the plot of the episode as, “Sherlock longing for someone who’s not there for an hour and a half and playing sad tunes on his violin.”
Moffat also mentioned that he’s writing the Doctor Who Christmas Special right now, “and it’s impossible!” The prolific writer says he’s “never worked as hard in his life” but adds “I’m the laziest man on Earth, I just have to work, it’s just the deadlines that make me do it.” You can watch the aftershow interview with Steven Moffat at this link. The sound editors describe Sherlock as one of the best programmes on television in their aftershow interview right here, which also touches on their working progress and co-operation.
