Sherlock returns to Cardiff for final filming on series 3


While the world patiently (ha!) waits for any tiny hint as to how Sherlock Holmes survives his rooftop leap off St Barts, the cast and crew responsible for creating the best bit of television on television have returned to Cardiff to continue filming for episode 3 in this years Sherlock series on BBC One and PBS. With the first two episodes, “The Empty Hearse” and “The Sign of Three” shot and, for all intents and purposes, in the can, once filming and post is complete on episode three, “His Last Vow”, it’s only a matter of time before transmission dates are set on both sides of the pond. In case you haven’t seen the trailer for series 3…
 

 
Spotted on the streets of Cardiff during filming were series star, Benedict Cumberbatch, along with Martin Freeman (Watson), Mark Gatiss (Mycroft) and Amanda Abbington. Matthew Horwood took a number of great behind-the-scenes shots for Wales Online during filming. One particular photograph of note was that of Benedict Cumberbatch leaving his trailer with a message for some of the paparazzi taking photos. Essentially, how about turning their attention to the civil war in Egypt rather than trying to snap him filming the detective drama.
