petition for a doctor who episode where the doctor travels back in time to meet arthur conan doyle and accidentally happens to mention how popular sherlock holmes is even 130 years later and poor acd almost breaks down crying
"Doctor before you leave…just tell me one thing."
"My books, the Sherlock Holmes books…do they die out?"
"No, Arthur. People love them. They carry on for hundreds of years."
"Damnit. God damnit. Fuck."
Lol no he is like please tell me The White Company and my history of the second boer war are still remembered.
And the doctor is like… Your what? No, mate. All anyone remembers you for is your walrus mustache and Sherlock Holmes.
And ACD is like… Nooooo I will circumvent history! I will kill Sherlock Holmes RIGHT NOW. the final problem! I will end this now.
And the Doctor is like umm. Yeah. You do that.
