I’m afraid Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be in a spot of trouble with Steve Moffat, Mark Gatiss and the BBC. While Sherlock Season 3 begins shooting on Monday (with the read-through producing some lovely pics),
Mr. Cumberbatch inadvertently let slip that he and Martin Freeman are committed for a Sherlock Season 4! According to various reports (see below), Benedict Cumberbatch is reported as saying: “All I know at the moment is that I’m doing these three and another three.”
When asked about the future of Sherlock after Season 4, Mr. Cumberbatch reportedly replied:
“It just depends on Martin and I’s availability, how long we can keep it going. It depends on Steven’s ability. I’d love to keep it going.”
Celebrated with kippers and toast for breakfast! Am throwing myself at cleaning up workload enough that I can finish another story and get some more Sherlock fun done. (I have some thoughts on the suggestion running around the net that Sherlock Season 3, Episode 3, will be The Adventure of the Three Garridebs. )
Meanwhile, let us all bow down before our lords and masters, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss for getting Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman to sign a contract for Sherlock Season 4 as well as Season 3 (not to mention the wise folks at BBC who approved the contract).
Oh, and if you find this site and information useful, do me a big favor and share it. Thank you kindly!
