Haven't seen this news nugget reported here yet so i will share:
from Twitter -
I can't wait for the return of Sherlock!
That's too far away. I need more Sherlock NOW.
I hear you. Sherlock is superb.
I'm happy that we're getting a 3rd and a 4th series.
They began filming on Monday. They are filming two now with a third to be filmed later in the year when Martin and Ben have fulfilled commitments in New Zealand and ben's movie about Brian Epstein
Yes! Love the first two seasons. Best money I've spent on DVDs in years.
I think my very favorite scene in terms of character development, where Freeman and Cumberbatch just NAILED it, was during
Spoiler: key scene
"The Great Game." It's hard to articulate just why exactly it appeals to me so much, but it's the scene where John is yelling at Sherlock, "There are lives at stake here, Sherlock, actual human lives; do you care about that at all?"
Will caring about them help save them?
Then I'll continue to not make that mistake.
That's easy for you?
Yes, very.......is that news to you?
I've disappointed you
You just don't get genuine chemistry like that between two leads who aren't fighting, but are discovering genuine flaws in the other's character. I've disappointed you. Yes, you have. It wasn't soapy melodrama. It was just so--real. I appreciated it.
Agreed. For me it was the interplay between Freeman and Cumberbatch that sold me on the series. Not sure I would have been interested if there were different actors involved.
Also, the casting in this series tends toward fantastic across the board. Their choices for Mycroft, Irene Adler and Moriarty have all been dead-on great.
If you think of Sherlock as a series of films, you realize that they come out fairly regularly. And it is a series of films.
That it is. If it were a 16 or 22 episode per season series the quality would inevitably drop--but it's a moot point anyway. Freeman and Cumberbatch are too much in demand elsewhere. It's fortunate that we're getting a series 3 and 4. The two stars genuinely like doing it. Neither one seems full of himself during interviews. They're both quite articulate. Strikingly so.
I have a favorite comedic scene from Sherlock as well. Hands down the best.
I've just watched an interview by Stephen Moffat where he basically says that with this series, we're seeing Holmes and Watson at the beginning of their career, where they're younger than what we're used to seeing. I wonder if that was his way of saying "well, we can stop this thing for twelve years and come back to it if we want".
Big time casting spoiler for a new female character! This person's picture has been posted while filming a scene and it's obvious that she's in character, not just visiting the set.
Spoiler: casting spoiler female character
The character's name....Mary. She's pictured with Cumberbatch dressed in his Sherlock character's coat staring at some sort of bonfire. The actress? None other than Amanda Abbington--long time partner of Martin Freeman and mother of his children. Make of that what you will.
Well, the three clues Moffat gave were
Rat, Wedding, Bow.
So that certainly makes sense with the second clue.
I really liked season 1 and the first two of season 2, but the last episode of S2 was horrible. Hopefully the third season will be good.
The Reichenbach Fall? It was heartbreaking. You didn't like it in terms of quality or just because it was heartbreaking?
For me, the second episode was the odd one out (actually in the first season too) mainly because it took palce away from London and was so creepy.
The third ep had moments of brilliance. For a moment I actually believed Moriaty's story, that he was an actor paid by Sherlock.
Yeah it was the same with me, the first of each is great, second weak, then a strong finish to the season. I loved the series 2 finale, can't wait to see the resolve in series 3.
Yup - 2nd episode of both seasons were the weakest.
Separate names with a comma.
