SAN DIEGO– It’s not likely Sherlock Holmes will ever share a pipeline with a Time Lord.

“Physician Who” and “Sherlock” mastermind Steven Moffat is up for an encounter in between his leading males, however he restated to crowds at Comic-Con on Thursday that he doesn’t think a crossover will ever come true.

“I have no problem with them conference,” the showrunner informed the Hall H crowd throughout the pop-culture celebration’s “Medical professional Who” session. “It’s all the rest of them that have actually got an issue. I ‘d do anything for a laugh.”

How would the time-traveling Doctor respond to an encounter with the scarf-clad criminal activity solver?

“More intelligently,” stated Peter Capaldi, who depicts the 12th iteration of the Time Lord on the long-running sci-fi series.

Moffat later noted Thursday afternoon during a “Sherlock” panel in Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center that there’s a precedent for the Doctor encountering imaginary characters. He crossed courses with Robin Hood last season.

“I’m willing to do it since I’m such a please-anybody tart,” joked Moffat. “We can bring in Physician Doom as well, and Spider-Man, all the Batmans. It would be the best program ever!”

Moffat exposed to “Sherlock” fans that he really currently crafted a crossover between the characters. In his youth, he cast his sister to play both Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes in a house motion picture.

“I made it years ago,” he said. “I’m over it.”

“Doctor Who” is due back Sept. 19, while a Victorian-set “Sherlock” Christmas special will be provided in December. Both programs air on the BBC in the United Kingdom, while “Doctor Who” airs on the cable television network BBC America and “Sherlock” is transmitted on PBS in the United States.
