The Full Sherlock…at Comic-Con 2013


Unfortunately, this won’t make life any easier given that Sherlock still probably won’t premiere on the BBC and PBS until 2014, but thanks to the generous folks over at PBS’ Masterpiece series, it’s just about the next best thing unless you happen to re-watch series one and two anytime between now and then. Many have seen the brilliant on location taped bits from both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman that originally played at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 this past July.

As most know, series stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were unable to attend with Martin putting the finishing touches on Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy while Benedict was involved in virtually every other movie that was filming at the time (or so it seemed). However, Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss along with Executuve Producer, Sue Vertue, were in attendance and did the utmost to bring the standing room only crowd to a fevered pitch talking about their favorite consulting detective.
 

 
Grab some lunch and have a look. It’s well worth it. Especially about 10 minutes in when Steven Moffat revisits the series two ending and then reveals his most favorite show-stopping Sherlock moment so far. Me? I’m on the way to the video store to get Billy Wilder’s Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Stephens and Christopher Lee, which Mark Gatiss speaks of as being a big inspiration to them when researching the relationship between Sherlock and his older brother, Mycroft.
