Glenn Beck said Monday that he hopes to be able to speak with Steven Moffat, the brilliant writer and producer behind the hit BBC series "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock."

"I want to talk to this guy," Beck said on his radio program. "He's now in charge of the storybook, if you will, of 'Doctor Who.' He wanted to do it forever. And he wrote some stories -- he's the guy who came up with the weeping angels and everything ... but he was not the guy in charge. He was just one of the writers."

"What bothered him about the series was it was just a collection of stories, and it loosely tied together but there was no real fabric that wove the entire thing together," Beck continued. "And so when Matt Smith took over, that's the first season that [Moffat] actually was in charge of the entire thing. And when you see it ... everything changes and it becomes, literally, I think one of the best storytelling experiences I have ever seen on television."

"I mean, I don't know what happened to the BBC, when they started getting good," Beck added with a laugh. "Between 'Downton Abbey' ... 'Merlin' ... 'Sherlock' is off the charts."

Moffat co-created "Sherlock" with Mark Gatiss, who has also been involved in "Doctor Who" throughout the years.

"They are so well-done," Beck said of the "Sherlock" episodes he's seen. "The Robert Downey Jr. [Sherlock Holmes movies], I think, are really good. These blow them out of the water."
