With the filming date for the fourth series of Sherlock now confirmed, we thought that we would recap what we know so far, and explore the possibilities of what may be ahead… Almost as soon as the third series of the hit BBC detective series came to an end in January last year, we were eager for a release date for the fourth outing of our favourite drama, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the iconic London crime-solving duo, Sherlock and Watson. The series was broug
When it was announced that this year’s one-off Sherlock Special would be set in the Victorian era, we were all more than a little bemused. Don’t get us wrong, we can thoroughly appreciate the quirkiness of taking the modern-day twist show back to its original roots, but did wonder just how on earth it would fit in to the hit BBC detective series we have all come to know and love. Well, the clue was probably in the title one-off, meaning that it didn’t necessarily have to fit in
Sherlock: Series 4 filming date confirmed as Benedict Cumberbatch gets snubbed at BAFTAs – See full winners list here!
It is the news that all Sherlock fans have been waiting for – Series 4 has been given a filming date! But don’t get too excited because, unlike many early reports had suggested, the new series won’t be being filmed this year, but spring 2016! Now we all know that the cast and crew have been filming for the one-off Sherlock Special, expected to be aired this Christmas, but we had all kind of hoped that filming for the fourth series would happen later this year with perhaps a vie
All you have to do is take one look at Sherlock star, Andrew Scott, and the fear of god is instantly upon you, even if you have never heard him mutter a word as Moriarty – the actor just has villain written all over him! This has been the case even before his days on Sherlock, as Scott has been explaining in a recent interview with Radio Times. According to the star, who is set to make a return to the hit BBC detective series when it airs its one-off Victorian Special later this year, he h
It is every little boys dream to play a Marvel comic hero, but not everyone is right for the part, as Benedict Cumberbatch has just discovered. The word superhero suggests a certain type of person – One who is tall, built like a brick outhouse with rippling muscles and pecks bursting through their very tight, Lycra costumes…… With not a deer stalker hat or a mac in sight! So of course when Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch, accepted the role of Dr Strange for the new upcoming
Ever since Sherlock first hit our BBC screens five years ago, the detective series, and its two main stars, have become a global phenomenon. But with such popularity comes fame which in turn leads to demand, as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who play the crime fighting duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, have discovered. The pair now have diaries that are probably blocked out until 2080 at least, with more blockbuster films under their belts than they can shake a stick at. And i
We can’t wait for the new series of Doctor Who, and to raise the excitement levels through the roof, those lovely people over at BBC have revealed that we will be getting a new monster as part of the deal. Series nine of the hit BBC Family sci-fi series is already shaping up to be one to remember, with guest stars including Rufus Hound and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams so far confirmed as joining The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman). Now the Daily Star newspaper has
Sherlock Spoilers: Moffat reveals series 4 hasn’t even been WRITTEN yet, but will put fans “through the mill”
Ahead of the one-off Sherlock Special which is scheduled to air later this year, we simply cannot contain our excitement about the fourth series of the hit BBC detective show that will follow it. And to help get us even more in the mood, one of the show’s co-creators, Steven Moffat, has been giving us a few teasers about what we can expect. In possibly one of his most detailed interviews regarding the new series, the writer told Entertainment Weekly that he and fellow co-creator Mark
Ever since current Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat branched out to co-creating the hit BBC detective series, Sherlock, there have been talks of the super-power shows crossing paths. Of course, the very nature of each show has presented quite a few obstacles, the main one being that whilst one show relies on delving in to the realms of fantasy, the other’s MO is to prove reality beyond all reasonable doubt. By our reckoning this means that it could only ever be Sherlock (Benedict Cumbe
It has been one of the biggest questions of all time – Is Sherlock Holmes gay or straight? – And now it has finally been answered! Throughout the century that people have been reading the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series of novels, there has been no real suggestion of any sort of sexual partner in the iconic London detective’s life. This was made even more apparent when Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis reinvented the show with a modern day twist, with som
Now that filming has officially begun for this year’s Christmas Special of Sherlock, we can all finally accept that it is really happening and start to get excited about it. Especially now that co-creator Steven Moffat has been feeding us teasers about it… So far, all we had really known about the 2015 Sherlock Special was that it was being filmed ahead of the highly-anticipated fourth series, and that it was set in Victorian England. It was also mooted that it would be shown at Chri

Nobody could have predicted the phenomenal success that the latest modern-day twist on the original Sherlock Holmes novels would have had on the entire planet when it first hit our screens back in 2010…
If we hadn’t seen this with our own eyes, we wouldn’t believe it – Benedict Cumberbatch, the man who is so busy he can only make a new series of Sherlock every two years, has found the time to make a TV commercial for a car! Of course this may well be his competitive side coming out after it was noticed that his pregnant wife, Sophie Hunter, was actually on our TV screens more than him at the moment as she was in a car ad herself!
It is the stuff Sherlock fans can only dream of, Sherlock and Molly reading love letters to each other, which is almost exactly what is about to happen as Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey have both signed up for the new series of Letters Live. Letters Live, which is inspired by Shaun Usher’s books Letters of Note and Simon Garfield’s To the Letters, is coming back to our great capital from March 31st through till April 4th to help promote and celebrate centuries of literary co
Given the popularity of Sherlock Holmes at the moment, thanks to the hit BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and considering the amount of time we currently have to wait between series’, it is little wonder that others are cashing in on the legendary character. Only last week a new series starring Marin Clunes, Arthur & George, hit ITV screens depicting a real life mystery that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the writer of the original Sherlock Holmes novels, helped to
