So, the writers for the next series of Sherlock have been announced. Mark Gatiss is doing Hound - no surprise there, given his Hammer geekery - Moff is doing Scandal in Bohemia - which is slightly worrying, as his female characters do tend towards the tropey - and Steve Thompson, yes, THAT Steve Thompson, the eejit who wrote the racist, sexist, cliché-filled episode of last series of Sherlock and last night's less than whelm-inducing episode of Doctor Who, has been given The Final Problem.
I'll say that again, just in case you missed it: Steve Thompson is writing The Final Problem. The most iconic tale from a stable of iconic tales has been handed to a moron.
I think today is just going to be a day for *headdesk*ing, isn't it?
