Theories abound on 'Sherlock' return this Sunday


The Sherlock countdown has officially begun. In just under 48 hours, America will officially be on the ‘do not call’ list for approximately 2 hours beginning at 8:00p CT/9:00p ET when the third series of Sherlock transmits on PBS. It’s no secret that Sherlock has survived his series 2 ending swan dive off the rooftop of St. Barts Hospital, but actually how he survives is still a mystery (to most of the U.S. anyway). There have been countless internet theories as to how from the worldwide fanbase, some more plausible than others. Early on, there was even talk for a brief moment that you could find out in a 1998 episode of Jonathan Creek.

To both the amusement and delight of the producers of Sherlock, never has a series garnered such speculation and fan interest since, maybe, the infamous 1980 “Who Shot JR” episode of Dallas. Here, the Sherlock creators talk about fan theories on Sherlock’s return.
