Moffat made his comments on critics while talking to the BBC about the upcoming Season 3 of “Sherlock.” Asked whether he was concerned about a critical response, Moffat did not seem worried at all. “I don’t know how much of a difference it makes to ‘Sherlock,'” the producer says. “It notoriously doesn’t hugely make an impact on big, successful shows what the critics say.”
But this doesn’t mean that Moffat wants negative reviews or anything. He noted in the same interview that positive comments from critics can make a big “difference to my day.” So Moffat does care!
Following an extended break after the end of Season 2, “Sherlock” Season 3 will finally premiere on Jan. 1 in the U.K. and on Jan. 19 in the U.S.
