Last night, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steven Moffat all took part in a Question and Answer session at Regent Street’s Apple Store and it’s looking like we’re going to have to wait a while until we see Sherlock again…

Speaking at a Question & Answer event at the Apple Store in London, Martin Freeman also joked that a scene in a gay club had been axed from the third season.

Freeman who plays the role of Watson has a MAHOOSIVE bromance going on with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock, but it would have taken it to a whole other level if we saw the scene that was shot in a gay club.

Joking about the said scene, Freeman said: “There was the gay club scene. Why did that get in? We got mullered in a gay club and all these topless guys were going by”.

Cumberbatch jumped in and added: “I – Sherlock – had no idea why we were there and what it was and they were all walking past and then I realised”.

Going on to speak about the scene, Steven Moffat said: “The first cut of the stag went on and on and on, if you had seen us you would have hunted us down”.

However, at the end of the third series of the show, Moriarty made a shocking return and it turns out that scene was only included to mess with the viewers.

The third series of the show aired in the UK last month and aired in the US over the weekend, and in the last episode ‘His Last Vow’ Moriarty showed up to taunt Sherlock.

Fans from as far afield as Japan and the U.S.A. gathered at the Apple Store on London’s Regent Street last night, and one fan questioned the final scene.

Moffat explained: “That was in the cutting room, Mark [Gatiss] just decided we would use a little bit of it. It was just a final little treat really just to wind people up.

“I was as surprised as anyone when he turned up. He was definitely dead. You can’t fake shooting yourself in the face. The back of his head came off”.

But, Moffat then went on to tease how long it may be before we get our next fix of Sherlock, as he said: “I don’t know what is going on, I can’t wait for four or give years until we make the next episode.”

It looks like we could be waiting two years for the next series of Sherlock again. Speaking to IGN earlier this month, Moffat revealed that it could be another couple of years before we see series 4, but he really isn’t sure.

He said: “If people have to wait two years, they’ll have to wait two years. [It’s like asking] when’s the next James Bond film?

“It’s not that kind of show that turns up all the time. It’s just not. But the good news is, that probably means it will turn up sporadically for a very, very long while”.

Would you rather see regular series’ of Sherlock that may burn out after a few years or would you rather wait a couple of years between series’ and have Sherlock last a long time? Let us know in the comments, below…
