Steven Moffat has defended criticisms that his Doctor Who and Sherlock stories contain ‘plot holes’.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Moffat said that he believes clever viewers are able to work things out for themselves and don’t always need an on screen explanation.

He said: “I think people have come to think a ‘plot hole’ is something which isn’t explained on screen. A plot hole is actually something that can’t be explained.”

“Sometimes you expect the audience to put two and two together for themselves. For Sherlock, and indeed Doctor Who, I’ve always made the assumption that the audience is clever.”
