It’s the on-screen partnership everyone’s been waiting for… but not quite how you imagined it.

Sherlock and the Doctor finally shared the screen last night thanks to Newzoids – ITV’s satirical puppet show – and it was the predictable clash of egos. 

Both finding themselves at the scene of a crime, the characters – played in their respective TV series by Benedict Cumberbatch and Peter Capaldi – soon fell to trading insults and arguing over just whose “ridiculous”, “implausible” show they were both in. 

“You great stretched-out Picasso-faced numpty,” the Doctor yelled at Sherlock. “What are you doing in my show? P**s off.”

“How dare you,” responded BBC1’s super sleuth.”This is most emphatically my show that you are in.”

Suffice to say, it’s as you’ve never seen them before. But who won their stand-off? You’ll have to watch the clip below and decide for yourself…
