Sherlock teasers for series two on BBC and PBS

Hard to think of the word “teaser” when it refers to something that’s still almost four months away from filming and, roughly, nine months away from broadcast, but little mind-teasers are starting to leak out about the next set of the Sherlock series from the genius minds of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

With the worlds of Doctor Who and Sherlock on a collision course this coming Spring, Moffat did take a moment to offer a brief visual teaser that will have to hold us over until Fall 2011. During an interview we did this past Fall, both Moffat and Gatiss offered up a visual teaser for their next set of Sherlock brilliance. FYI, see below for the three word explanation so you don’t have to go look it up…

Adler, Hound, Reichenbach

  • “Adler” refers to Irene Adler, a character from the short story A Scandal in Bohemia. She is considered to be a love interest in some versions of the detective’s tales. Rachel McAdams played her in the recent cinematic version of Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr.
  • “Hound” refers to The Hound of the Baskervilles, one of the four novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective. The novel tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a mythical hound.
  • “Reichenbach” refers to the location in which Holmes and Moriarty have their final battle.

According to, fans of the first series are in for a brilliant ride when season two premieres in the Fall of 2011. Sounds like Mark Gatiss and team are busy writing as we speak and while Steven Moffat wraps up final production on the new season of Doctor Who. Downplaying his major role in the series, Moffat told the New York Times “….the other two writers have started. I won’t be able to start for a while, so I’ll come skidding in at the last minute and do my bit.”
