Last night was a fitting kick-off to the long-awaited broadcast of Sherlock 2 which premieres next Sunday, May 6, on PBS’ Masterpiece. About 150 fans of the BBC/PBS series braved the sunny, 70 degree weather to venture out to Trinity Hall Irish Pub for a great night of trivia and the opportunity to get an advance preview of next Sunday’s premiere of Sherlock “A Scandal in Belgravia”.
A record number of trivia teams, 36 to be exact, braved the elements to compete for the distinction of claiming the title of the first-ever Sherlock themed trivia pub quiz at Trinity Hall. A huge thank you to Marius, Roger, Patrick and all the great folks over at Trinity Hall for making it a very special evening for KERA Sherlock fans who haven’t had much to smile about since season one ended back in late 2010. Special thanks, also, to the number of Tellyspotting readers who came out in support of KERA and Sherlock, including Julie Barrett, who has not only been a reader from day one, but who contributed an amazing homemade deerstalker hat as one of the grand prize giveaways. More photos from Sundays screening and more on this great hat that no self-respecting Sherlock fan should be without later this week.
The new season of, perhaps, the best television show on television begins this coming Sunday, May 6, at 8:00pm CT/9:30pm ET on PBS stations nationwide. After “Scandal…”, the 13 May episode will be “Hounds of Baskerville” and the series 2 finale will be 20 May and “The Reichenbach Fall”. Sadly, I must warn you. Savor every moment of these three episodes as from the looks of things, series 3 won’t even begin filming until early 2013 given massive commitments from those in front of and behind the camera.
