Steven Moffat Honored By the Queen for Doctor Who and Sherlock

No word yet on whether she can convince him to let one go.


Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday marks the introduction of a brand new Queen’s Birthday honors list, which honors prominent figures who have made an impact on the UK’s cultural landscape. Steven Moffat is one of those people, and whether you agree with his handling of Doctor Who and Sherlock or not, his prolific work on both are definitely worthy of recognition.

Cheers to you, Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, Steven Moffat.

Now seriously, bring back Osgood. Never mind. What were we talking about? Huh? Why do I have these hash marks on my arm?

Oh well, let’s all have a toast to Osgood’s return.
