Sky diving off the roof of St Barts?
Benedict Cumberbatch has given the strongest hint yet as to how his brilliant 21st Century adaptation of Sherlock Holmes survived that ‘impossible’ plunge from the roof of St Bart’s Hospital at the end of series two. Sort of…
“Have you seen the winged suits on YouTube??” said Cumberbatch (jokingly) during a recent webchat on Reddit. “I told you I was into skydiving. How many more clues do you need people?” During the 2-hour long Q&A, Cumberbatch told one fan who asked him about his favorite places in the world: “Touching the earth after my first skydiving jump in New Zealand.”
Sherlock to Mind the Gap and go ‘Underground’ for series 3 premiere
In regards to how the first episode of series 3 plays out, co-creator/writer Mark Gatiss revealed during the recent announcement by the BBC of the discovery of two ‘lost’ Doctor Who episodes starring Patrick Troughton that the first episode, ‘The Empty Hearse’, will involve scenes set on the London Underground rail system and is influenced by the missing Doctor Who “The Web of Fear” lost episode.
“I am obsessed with the Tube and I think it all comes from that story when I was a kid,” said Gatiss. “The first episode of Sherlock is explicitly about the London Underground for exactly that reason, because I love ‘The Web of Fear’!”
Are you ready for some Sherlock? Unfortunately, still no official word out of the UK or U.S. as to when we’ll be seeing Sherlock but conventional wisdom says January 2014 on both sides of the pond.
