      I feel like Doctor Who is too childish now. I suppose it does have some "darker" moments though - I know Peter Capaldi is meant to be a "darker" Doctor, but seriously... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdjmzZ7UuCU

      Sherlock is more greater and does not get Beginners to be confused by time jumping back & forth and back and forth over and over until the series ends

      I get into Doctor Who 10x easier, I still like Sherlock but I can't watch it as easily considering the hour-and-a-half episodes

      Sherlock Season 3 made the latest season of Doctor Who look bad. I like Sherlock and Doctor Who equally but Sherlock is starting to get a lot better while Doctor Who is going downhill. The old Doctor Who including David Tennant is way better.

      Doctor Who is going down hill? You, sir, have a good sense of humour. By the way, Doctor Who has, like, 800+ episodes and Sherlock, well, people will be happy when it reaches it's tenth episode. Seriously.

      Sherlock has only 9 episodes plus a Christmas special, which was proven to be better than the doctor who christmas special on IMDb, because the two main characters and the actor who plays Moriarty are busy actors and Season 3 of Sherlock was delayed I think twice because one actor was busy with acting in two movies, Captain America and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and two other actors were busy with another, Doctor Strange and Spectre, which means they are really good, busy actors. Plus Sherlock has a better storyline and it contains a lot of cliffhangers which are interesting.

      i dont think so, the sherlock fandom is amazing, creating hundreds of gifs from 6 episodes. and doctor who has been on for 33 years, not 50. get your facts straight before bashing on a fandom like that.

      If you had to go 2 years waiting for a new season with a cliff hanger you'll know will be worse than the last, you'd go crazy too. We embarrass ourselves and we don't care.

      Okay, get your facts straight. First off, doctor who has been around for 33. Second off, the sherlock fandom is actually more mature than the Doctor who fandom. The doctor who fandom constantly bashes on other fandoms, and they live by "Everyone loves our show, if they dont they're stupid". The sherlock fandom is respectful to other fandoms.

      Actually, Doctor Who was created in 1963, so yes, 50 years. And I don't think I'd say that about any fandom, Derp...

    Honestly, did we all turn into monsters over a simple question? Have you all forgotten how close a bond these two shows have? How the fandoms always have each other's back? Have we all forgotten about Wholock? Let's retrieve our sanity, shall we? Stop bashing Sherlock or Doctor Who or trying to prove a point. Both shows are equally amazing just as how both fandoms are equally amazing.

    Doctor Who will always be better and with a couple hundred episodes, you'd never get bored. And before anyone says "Theres only 6 seasons", you're an ignorant dipshit who probably only watches the show for it's popularity.

    Sherlock will most likely end before Doctor Who and if Moffat is basing Sherlock from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he'll run out of stories. On the other end there's 50 years of Doctor Who and I can watch classic Who episodes, I love both to death but I'll have to pick the Doctor over Sherlock this time

    As much as I absolutely love both shows, I can't see Sherlock lasting much longer just because of the format. 3 episodes per season after over a year waiting, dunno how long they plan on doing that. I'd also just get more episodes per season with Doctor Who c: Hard as fuck question though.

    All of you say that doctor who has more seasons, yes it does. But sherlock doesn't have just 6 episodes, it never said we cant watch the movies too. So there's plenty of movies to watch aswell with a variety of different actors playing sherlock, and the scripts aren't exactly the same. Besides, i cant STAND any old versions of doctor who since i was brought up with 9th and the older ones dont have that good screen quality. And ugh, if i have to watch series 5-7 again i'll puke, i hate amy. So, sherlock it is, plus you can learn how to deduce things from sherlock.
