Lots of rumors swirling the Internets these days as Sherlock fans seek separation anxiety comfort for their continued efforts to find out what’s happening with series 3, which is headed our way, most likely in early 2014.
Up until now, technically, all we ‘officially’ know about the third series of Sherlock was that it would be comprised of three 90-minute films. The opening installment ‘The Empty Hearse’, written by Mark Gatiss, began finished principle filming in March. The second episode, written by Steve Thompson (a.k.a. the man who ripped your heart out in last season’s finale, “The Reichenbach Falls”) will be titled ‘The Sign of Three’. Now to the good stuff….
It’s only Wednesday, but this week has been like a trip to Disneyland for Sherlock fans worldwide. Monday was a day unlike any other day as filming for episode 2 began in the wee hours of the morning with a very cryptic tweet from series producer, Sue Vertue. Proof positive that a picture really is worth a thousand words…
Now, thanks to the great folks over at Digital Spy we have big news to share regarding the, yet untitled, episode 3. Written by series co-creator, Steven Moffat, the series 3 finale will be directed by Nick Hurran. Another name you may or may not know, but you definitely are familiar with his work. Best known for his Doctor Who episodes. In 2001, Hurran directed both the ‘The Girl Who Waited’ and ‘The God Complex’. In 2012, he helmed ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ and ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’. Hurran recently returned to the Who franchise for a fifth time where he is currently shooting the 50th anniversary special.
If this isn’t enough for one short week, before you ask, we’ve had more confirmations of a fourth series of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Stay tuned….
