Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and his name is Steven Moffat. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the Sherlock co-creator/writer pulls 7:13 of greatness out of his red bag and delivers it to Sherlock fans across the land. The run-up to the BBC One series 3 premiere on 1 January and the PBS series 3 premiere on January 19 is more than anyone could have expected.
The spoiler here isn’t that Sherlock survived the high dive off the rooftop of St. Barts. With the exception of John Watson and a few others, we all know he has survived. But, Sherlock has been gone for two years. Many Happy Returns sets the stage for Sherlock’s return to London. A series of crimes across the globe, from New Dehli to Germany, have been solved by almost impossible means which leads ‘someone’ to believe Sherlock just might not be dead. That’s all that should be said at this point. One week from today, with the return of Sherlock, the UK will become officially a ‘do not call’ zone for 90+ minutes. Sadly, the U.S. will have to wait until January 19 and the PBS broadcast on January 19.
Happy Christmas to all…from Tellyspotting! Thank you for a wonderful year of connecting. Here’s to 2014 and a brilliant year of British telly!
