PBS is giving its shows the Talking Dead treatment … only with a podcast.

Sherlock fans have yet to see the Victorian era-set special Christmas episode of the sleuth show, but co-creator Mark Gatiss is already hard at work on the next season of the Benedict Cumberbatch- and Martin Freeman-starring update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective tales.

In fact, the British writer and actor — who plays Mycroft Holmes on Sherlock — tells EW that a crossover between the two globally successful franchises will happen “over my dead body.”
