BBC confirms #SherlockLives. 01-01-14


Sherlock 3 – One mystery solved!

The BBC confirmed Friday the premiere airdate for Sherlock 3 on the BBC in the form of a hearse driving through the streets of London. Along for the ride were the appropriate flowers for the occasion announcing the date that the world’s most famous consulting detective will return to life on 1 January 2014. Happy 2014 to the UK from the BBC and Hartswood Films. Can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year! And, can’t think of a more appropriate place to stop along the route as THE place to pay your #r3spects

While the BBC did also confirm the airdates for the complete series, in the ‘be careful what you ask for department‘, even the untrained detective eye could count up the hours and rejoice or lament that UK viewers will see two episodes within 4 days. In less than two weeks, the the entire series 3 will be history with the countdown calendar set to begin for 2016 and, I’m guessing, series 4 of Sherlock.

  • Sherlock: “The Empty Hearse” 1 January 2014
  • Sherlock: “The Sign of Three” 5 January 2014
  • Sherlock: “His Last Vow” 12 January 2014

Almost immediately following, one week after the conclusion of series 3 in the UK, PBS in the States will premiere episode 1 of series 3 on Sunday, January 19. While a three week wait seems like light years in the Age of the Internet, beats the heck out of a 5 month delay that we all had to deal with for series 2.
