On Twitter yesterday Abbington told fans: "Thanks for the lovely tweets re; the Emmy's. So pleased we won! Cool, right? However, we went up to collect the Emmy, did some press, came back to my seat and some bastard had nicked my purse from under my seat. Nice.”
The ‘Sherlock’ creator says the BBC made the right decision in letting the ‘GBBO’ go.
‘Sherlock’ and ‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat has praised the BBC for refusing to pay the reported £25 million demanded by production company Love Productions to keep the ‘Great British Bake Off’ on their channel.

Speaking at the Emmy awards Moffat said he’s had offers from other broadcasters to take ‘Sherlock’ but he's always refused them. "We have had offers, that's not what it's about. It should never be about that,” he told the Press Association. “I think the BBC was quite right not to reward greed. It's wrong.”
Benedict Cumberbatch's success elsewhere could prove to be bad news for the show.
Don't be alarmed, but there's a possibility that 'Sherlock' won't be on our screens for much longer according to the show's executive producer Steven Moffat.

Will 'Sherlock' series 4 be the last?
Moffat has even gone so far as to say the next series - set to air next year - could be the last if the actors contine to be as successful as they already are in the film industry. However, he also claims there's a chance that, even if it did get cancelled, there's no reason it won't be able to return in the future.
