FREE for delegates of the 2017 London Screenwriters’ Festival, otherwise £15.
Tuesday 12th September, 6.00pm for 6.30 start, Regents University.
The prolific and brilliant minds who have redefined Sherlock Holmes, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have ushered in a new worldwide audience for British television. Moffat and Gatiss, alongside producer Sue Vertue have ignited a worldwide resurgence in Holmes’s popularity with a formula built for success: Delicious mysteries, inspired casting, and a prickly hero as flawed as he is brilliant.
Now, after 130 years of thrilling audiences, the definitive Holmes in many minds belongs to Moffat, Gatiss, Vertue, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
With Steven just leaving his Showrunning role on Doctor Who and Mark in preproduction on the League of Gentlemen, they are joined by Sue to discuss…..
- The past, present and future of Sherlock, The Doctor, and their own careers.
- Their influence on British television and TV around the world.
- The upcoming Sherlock manga comic series.
- Reinventing beloved characters and how to breathe fresh life into classics
