sherlock martin freeman 1

Following his recent MASSIVE win at last weekend’s Emmy awards, news of which failed to even keep him awake, Sherlock star Martin Freeman has been teasing some exciting news about the new series.

Not much has been said with regards to storylines for the fourth series of the hit BBC detective series before the Emmys on Sunday night, but now it would seem that the excitement over the shows seven awards – including the top three for Outstanding Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch) Outstanding Supporting Actor (Martin Freeman) and Outstanding Writing (Steven Moffat) in a Miniseries – no one involved can stop themselves from hinting at the drama in store.

As we have previously reported, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is to be formally acknowledged by the Great British Institute that is Madame Tussauds!

And it would seem that the process to immortalise the star (well, we say immortalise, in truth they just melt the dummies down and use the wax to make someone else once their fame dies down) is going pretty well.

sherlock watson

Well, it was obvious that none of the people behind the hit BBC detective series, Sherlock, were expecting to win anything at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, as hardly any of them turned up – But we would have thought that the news that they had might have been a bit more exciting for one of them.

Sherlock spoilers: Benedict Cumberbatch moved to tears by ‘darker’ script’

sherlock drugs

We have had firmly sealed lips from the powers that be over at Sherlock HQ, ever since the last series ended, but now it seems you can’t shut any of them up!

Of course the sudden burst of enthusiastic sharing from the likes of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss is more than likely a direct result of the show’s massive triple win at last weekend’s Emmy Awards, during which both of the shows main stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, picked up the top prizes for Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries for their portrayals of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively.

Benedict Cumberbatch on Sherlock’s sex life & Steven Moffat praises BBC after Emmy triumph!

sherlock moriarty

Last weekend was a bit of a success for the team behind Sherlock, in particular its two main stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman who picked up the Emmy’s for Lead Actor and Supporting Actor in a Miniseries respectively, as well as the writing genius behind the show, Steve Moffat, who was awarded for his efforts too.

So it was no wonder that Steven Moffat, who was there alone and so had to pick up all three awards during Sunday’s ceremony in LA, was very thankful for the honour.

Well it certainly was a good night at the Emmy’s for Sherlock last night, the show picked up three of the most prestigious awards.

We all know how much our American friends love the hit BBC detective series based on the original works of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, with a Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss modern-day twist – But not even those people at the heart of the show were expecting such a triumph – In fact the show’s two stars weren’t even there to pick up their awards!

New Tricks Episode 2 Review: Danny’s new hobby, Lydia’s murder makes for a better instalment

New Tricks cast

It’s fair to say I wasn’t overly impressed with New Tricks’ return last week specifically the writers’ decision to focus on the tired character of Gerry rather than the group as a whole. Thankfully this week’s instalment is more concerned with showcasing the drama’s new group dynamic in both their professional and personal lives. Furthermore I particularly enjoyed the subplot involving Nicholas Lyndhurst’s Danny Griffin primarily as I feel that Lyndhurst is the strongest member of New Trick’s central quartet.
