Winning at the TV Choice Awards proved elementary for Sherlock as the detective drama series scooped two awards, with a gong for Best Drama Series and recognition for its star Benedict Cumberbatch as Best Actor.
It marked a remarkable double for Moffat, as he also won Best Family Drama Series with his other show Doctor Who.
Delivering a Best Actress trophy was Miranda Hart for her role in Call The Midwife, which caused a shock by beating critics' favourite Homeland to Best New Drama Series.

Slightly more predictably Keith Lemon and Celebrity Juice picked up a Best Entertainment Award while Jeremy Kyle took a Best Daytime gong, both winning for the second year in arow.
As ever some of the fiercest competition of the night was in the soap categories, with heavyweights Eastenders and Coronation Street trading blows to decide who would come out on top.
Honours were even in the Best Actor and Actress category, with Shane Richie (Alfie Moon) taking the actor gong back with him to the Queen Vic while Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) put the heartbreak of breaking up with The Wanted's Max George behind her by triumphing in the Best Actress category.
However in the end it was Eastenders which won the war of the soaps, after Tony Discipline (Tyler Moon) picked up a Best Newcomer gong and the Best Soap Award went to Walford.
Also taking home prizes were BBC comedy Mrs Brown's Boys (Comedy), Top Gear (Factual) and The Hairy Bakers (Food). Supersize vs. Superskinny took the Lifestyle Award.
In summary then, a superb night for Sherlock, magnificent for Moffat, with BBC bosses no doubt happy that their flagship soap and dramas won out, while ITV dominate light entertainment and daytime.
