Sherlock news: updates sighted on John’s blog!
Just before Series 3 is bound to soon descend on us, John’s blog has been updated.
And there’ll be more:
And I’ve found a few photos and a few blog posts I never finished so over the next few weeks I’ll be doing that really. Remembering the past.
Also — read the comments. There’s someone new there. “Who’s Mary?” asks Harry Watson. I see what you did there, BBC. The fourth wall has been struck.
Not to mention that this will hurt so, so much. Just as John resolves to move on, to live his life in remembrance, not grief, Sherlock will return… it’s going to damn well nearly break them both. What reading this blog entry must be doing to Sherlock right now…
In an exclusive scoop from the Sherlock producers, Entertainment Weekly has revealed that the US premiere date for the third series of Sherlock is set for January 19, 2014.
What I think is the even slightly bigger news is that the US date has been announced before the UK date…
Obviously we don’t yet know the BBC date. But given that the U.S. fans had to wait three months after the 2010 BBC premiere to see the first season of Sherlock, then had to wait four months for the 2012 second season after its UK debut, no matter when the BBC schedules its season three premiere, the gap is going to be less than before since Jan. 19 is less than three months from now (that sentence was totally convoluted but does make sense).

In case you missed them on twitter, here’s the BBC production gallery from this year’s summer shoot of Sherlock‘s third series.
Includes the Baker Street set, the crew, locations, and Lars Mikkelsen, who is set to play one of Sherlock’s meanest adversaries, Charles Augustus Magnussen.
This trailer includes new and returning dramas for the autumn season of this year.
“The thrill of the chase, blood pumping through your veins — the two of us against the rest of the world!”
— The line from Sherlock that will kill us all, probably.
Oh, how I’ve missed you.
Oh, my gosh, Sherlock’s face in the last frame! So stricken, so…. hang on. That’s…. that’s not where he reveals himself to John, is it? Surely, he wouldn’t risk grievous bodily harm in a public restaurant…
(I’m not even going to say anything about THE MOUSTACHE.)
There is speculation and conjecture everywhere, and the Radio Times has summarised it quite succinctly in their article this morning. ‘Rat’ could mean The Boscombe Valley Mystery, ‘wedding’ could mean meeting Mary Morstan in The Sign of Four, ‘bow’ might well mean His Last Bow, the one where Sherlock retires and flounces off to the country to go bee keeping. Or whatever else these words might mean in Moffat and Gatiss’ brilliant minds. Gatiss, the little tease, said that there is so much more material to draw from, and that the original stories themselves have basically nothing to do with chronology, so who cares, anyway.
Well, we do. But it’s not like we can do anything about it now, so I for one am just looking forward to what’s to come; using the mystery that was gleefully presented to us by Moffat, Gatiss, and Andrew Scott (nearly wetting himself with laughter, it seemed) as fun material for completely boring train rides.
So, after months of still-not-over-it and curse-you-Reichenbach, we will get, from the Moff himself, the three decisive words for Series 3 of Sherlock. After Woman, Hound, Fall, what might there be..?
