Why Sherlock doesn’t deserve those Emmy nominations

This year's Emmy nominees were recently announced, but the only thing that's stayed in my mind is my complete bafflement at Sherlock's nominations. Sherlock has been nominated for four Emmys, but only two of them are in categories that anyone cares about: television movie, and limited series actor.

Actually I'm not sure. This week we're back in the future - which this series seems to have… Continue reading Review: Doctor Who 10.11 ‘World Enough and Time’
