It may be shocking for '70s-obsessed me to admit it, but I absolutely adore this show. I watch an episode every Saturday night while eating a dish of insanely hot Thai Red Curry.

Yes, I live every second of my life on the friggin' EDGE--and then I'm asleep by 10 O'clock.

However, what I don't like is Gatiss and Moffat constantly patting themselves on the back and taking credit for inventing these characters. What crust!

I've watched the DVD interviews, and read more online, and I have not seen anything like that from either of them. If anything, they seem to be very grateful that they have the opportunity to tell some stories with these characters.

I'll watch the DVD features again and give you the telling quotes. You're probably just in awe of those guys. wink

Actually, I hadn't even heard of them until I started watching Sherlock.

No Jims right, havent seen the extra interviews but even in the scripts there is a certain smugness about them in the writing.

Good though.

does nobody still know when the new series is screened in the UK?
January again presumably?

The last I read, the new episodes were scheduled to begin production in January 2013. So probably a summer air date for the UK and fall for the US.

I didn't like them taking aim at the US "REMAKE" of the Sherlock when it wasn't a remake at all, it was taking a classic ESTABLISHED character and placing him in modern NYC rather then modern London [and really, what other two places could one have taken Mr. Holmes?].

My BIGGEST beef with BBC's SHERLOCK is that rather then 4 tight 60 min episodes we get 3 rather bloated 90 min episodes all of which while enjoyable always drag on in bits.

As for Series 3, I wonder how on earth they will explain the finale in a satisfying and believable answer

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!

it wasn't Holmes who went off the roof it was Moriarity (probably)
notice that when Watson goes over to examine the body a cyclist bumps into him to prevent it.
then a "copper" keeps everyone away from the scene. Homes must have called one of the Baker Street irregulars to keep Watson away.

Of course, its probably a bit of a cheat but so was the original story!

The third series of Sherlock will start filming on Monday 18th March, it has been announced.

The date was confirmed to website Sherlockology by the show's producer Sue Vertue.

Principal photography is having to be done in two waves, though, because of the availability of stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes) and Martin Freeman (Watson) for filming. Two of the three episodes will be shot at first, with cast and crew then taking an early break for the summer before returning a few weeks later for the final episode of the series.

Vertue, who is married to the show's co-creator Steven Moffat, said:
We could never have fitted all three films into one long go because of everyone's availability. It's being flexible like this which allows us to keep making them.
The start date coincides with the beginning of filming on the 50th-anniversary episode of Doctor Who - and Moffat is also the showrunner of the sci-fi series.

Last Thursday, Freeman told Graham Norton, on the latter's Comic Relief's Big Chat on BBC Three, that even after reading Mark Gatiss's "brilliant" script, he and the rest of the cast still weren't entirely sure how Holmes had managed to survive his rooftop fall at the end of Series 2. Gatiss is the fellow co-creator of the show.

Thanks John, at least we have some kind of intended date now.

Disappointing to me that with so much wall-to-wall utter cack on Tv that we have to wait a year and a half for more of this. Not the best on UK TV but one of the more watchable series.

With filming on the third series of Sherlock due to start this coming Monday, it has been revealed by the title star Benedict Cumberbatch that the show has been guaranteed a fourth series at least - and there may be more after that.

Speaking at the South Bank Show Awards on Tuesday, he said that he and co-star Martin Freeman had signed for two series, adding:
All I know at the moment is we're doing these three and another three. I just don't know what there is beyond that.
However, he said that although he was keen for the drama to keep running it really depended on the availability of himself, Freeman, and co-creator (and Doctor Who showrunner) Steven Moffat.

Talking about the first readthrough for Series 3's first episode, which took place on Monday, he said of Holmes's "return from the dead":
You are in for an absolute stonker of a resurrection. It's going to be a treat. It's a terrific episode . . . I really recommend waiting. It's going to be great.
He also told radiotimes.com that the new series could air this Christmas.

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue has issued a plea for fans to keep quiet about filming on the new series.

In a statement to website Sherlockology, she wrote:
Hi, Sue Vertue here. As many of you are aware, we'll soon be embarking on our first London leg of filming for series 3. I'm also aware that there is quite a lot of speculation about where we're shooting when. I can't stress how much we the producers and Benedict [Cumberbatch], Martin [Freeman] and the rest of the cast appreciate your love and dedication to our show - we'll endeavour to live up to your expectations for Series 3.

What I am nervous about is that our London shooting schedule is punishing and will really give us very little time to interact with you. The actors really hope you understand that.

Also, and I know this is probably asking a lot, the majority of fans and indeed ourselves would REALLY appreciate it if you didn't post pictures or spoilers or ideally our daily locations.

Thanks for your understanding. Sue x

The first episode of the third series is called The Empty Hearse. It has been written by Mark Gatiss and the director is Jeremy Lovering, with Amanda Abbington joining the cast in a role described by the BBC as one "that significantly impacts upon the lives of John and Sherlock." Abbington, whose character name has not yet been announced, is the partner of Martin Freeman, who plays Watson.

I'm (not) surprised that no one's mentioned the wonderful Irene Adler cue that plays when...and then...

John Barry did an amazing...I mean David Arnold and Michael Price did an amazing job with that.

Latest i had heard was they had filmed in london and cardiff and were close to finishing filming but i dont know how accurate that is.

Hopefully they are at least on target for their january broadcast.

Funny how the good series take forever to arrive and when they do theyre over quick - yet there is always endless reams of junk whose series go on forever. Why is that i wonder?

So to repeat a question I asked some time ago in this thread: Should I fill the wait until Sherlock's third series arrives with the Kenneth Branagh version of Wallander?

I read an interview the other day with Benedict Cumberbatch. Don't have the link handy, but he said he's trying to do what he can to get Season 3 to air the same day in both England and America. He knows the details of how Sherlock survived his fall are going to be everywhere online as soon as the episode airs, spoiling it for American viewers who normally have to wait months until the episodes air here. Frankly, I don't see why the show can't air in both countries on the same day.
