'Tis the season of geek TV! With Doctor Who's anniversary episode just around the corner and the Sherlock premiere officially months away, our favorite tweeters are sporting their geek flag in honor of the two BBC shows.

See Chloe, Wil, and more in this week's roundup of 10 tweets from geeks we love.
YES! Sherlock finally got a season three premiere date! Safe to say that actor Wil Wheaton is beyond excited.
If you were counting down to the new #Sherlock — and I most certainly am — you’d say that there are 88 days to go. Or: 126,720 minutes.
